Transformation

I hinted in last week's Tower that we would use our Sunday morning worship as a time to be still, but that we would also find space to act on our prayers. ACT we did! We transformed an empty communion table by filling it with 50 flood buckets and 50 hygiene kits. These kits will be transported to Church World Service, who will then distribute the buckets and kits to those who are recovering from the devastation of Hurricanes in Texas and Florida. I'm sure many of us have felt the desire to help in some way. Financial contributions are always needed, but even our financial contributions sometimes leave us feeling like we haven't done enough, or we don't know how or if our contributions have had an impact. Assembling buckets and kits with our own hands to be sent directly to people in need, makes an impact on us as well as the people who will receive them.

Prayer & Action

Prayer and action...can never be seen as contradictory or mutually exclusive. Prayer without action grows into powerless pietism, and action without prayer degenerates into questionable manipulation.

A Word from Eldonna Given in Worship on August 13, 2017

I want to take a moment this morning to address the violence in Charlottesville, Virgina. Last Friday night an interfaith prayer service was planned in anticipation of a "Unite the Right" rally on Saturday led by white nationalists. Rev. Traci Blackmon, Executive Minister of Justice and Witness ministry of the United Church of Christ was present at the vigil representing the UCC.
