How Do We Respond?

Since the election last week, there has been much pain experienced, pain on many different levels. As Christians we are directed to show love to ALL brothers and sisters. As each of us process the events of the last week, let us take time to grapple with our emotions, and then find space to move forward. We would recommend the use of the listed resources to find assistance in the move forward, as time and energy permits. We hope they may help in finding a centered place.

A Prayer for Voting

With my vote today, I am prepared and intending to seek peace for this country, as it is written:
"Seek out the peace of the city where I cause you to roam and pray for her sake to God, for in her peace you all will have peace." (Jeremiah. 29:7)

STEPPING UP: Consecration Sunday

Sunday, November 6th in worship, we will have the opportunity to carry our pledges forward during communion and place them in a basket. I understand that some people will have already turned their actual pledge form into the office, but there will be consecration forms in the bulletin to use for the act of consecration. Consecrating our pledges should not be taken lightly, or thought of as insignificant.

Counting the Days

This last Sunday in worship, I took the brave step of addressing the political atmosphere of today. Don't worry, I didn't endorse any political candidate, or belittle any candidate either. What I did was use the parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector to talk about how the parable might help us better understand prayer for this time in history. Clearly the Pharisee only wanted to point out his own righteousness. He did not admit to any faults of his own. He just compared himself to people like the Tax Collector, and reminded God of how much better he was than people like the Tax Collector. The Tax Collector, recognizing his faults, cried for mercy. He didn't make any promises to change his ways, he just wanted mercy.

For All the Saints!

Saints are sinners who kept on going. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

On Sunday, October 30th, we will celebrate All Saints Sunday during our morning worship, but our preparation will begin THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23 and all are invited to participate. All Saints' Day invites us to look way back to the very early days of the Church and at people whose lives are an inspiration for us. It also invites us to remember those whom we love who have left us on this earth. It calls us to notice those in our midst who show us a brighter way to live. In some mysterious way we will gather with all those who have gone before, with those we love who live in different parts of the world, as well as with those in the room with us. From the earliest days, the church has taken this opportunity to celebrate and we are invited to join in the celebration.
