Going with the Spirit

Last Sunday, we were confronted by the invitation to shift from, “what do I need to do?” to “what is the Spirit doing and how can I join in?”  I look forward to doing discernment around this question with you – in your life and in our church – in the future. In the meantime,[…]

We’re better together.

I have to confess I was in a slight panic prior to last Sunday’s worship when we didn’t have the usual long list of folks signed up to offer music, poetry, etc. during the service.  Turns out, the handful of lovely musical offerings were more than enough.

Last Sunday, we began worship with a joyful procession, waving palm branches like those who welcomed Jesus[…]

Last Sunday, we started Lent remembering how Jesus was able to withstand the temptation to achieve something supposedly good at the expense God’s will.  Yesterday, we were reminded that the temptation to achieve power/purity – at whatever the cost – is alive and well. Please keep our Muslim sisters and[…]
