Next Stop: Jerusalem! Are we ready to enter?

Faith in action is love, and love in action is service. By transforming that faith into living acts of love,
we put ourselves in contact with God Himself, with Jesus our Lord.
~ Mother Teresa
 
We are just days away from Jesus arriving in Jerusalem and the beginning of Holy Week. We will begin the week with Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem, followed by days that will bring pain, both emotionally and physically, to Jesus and his followers. In our travels with Jesus during this Lenten season, we witnessed his baptism, including him hearing God's blessing. We also eavesdropped on his first sermon to the disciples, telling them what his ministry would look like and what he expects of his followers. His expectations should be a mirror of his own ministry.  Jesus' ministry included mourning with people, being humble, working hard for justice, showing mercy, having a pure heart, working for peace, and enduring pain for doing what is right. We also have witnessed his presence with people who have been marginalized. Jesus goes out of his way to engage with people who are beyond what we would call his "inner circle."

Construction Zone Ahead! Please Read!

Construction is the art of making a meaningful whole out of many parts. Buildings are witnesses to the human ability to construct concrete things. I believe that the real core of all architectural work lies in the act of construction.
At the point in time concrete materials are assembled and erected, the architecture we have been looking for becomes part of the real world. 
~ Peter Zumthor
 
We have been talking about the renovation on the west side of the building for a very long time. Plans have been drawn and re-drawn. Bids have been submitted by contractors, and approved by the Executive Council. Over three years of work has been done by our Renovation Committee. And now . . . THE WORK HAS BEGUN! 
Many changes will need to be made by members of the congregation and outside groups who use our space. Please read the following updates about entry for all activities happening in the building:

One Great Hour of Sharing

Paul's letters remind us as members of the church, we are so closely connected, we can think of ourselves as parts of one body, as a family-brothers and sisters. Our church lives this out when someone is ill, mourning, or facing a crisis. We show up. We show that love in tangible ways, with casseroles and cards, hugs, and spoken words of prayer. These acts of kindness let our brothers and sisters in Christ know that we are present with them. They know that they are not forgotten in their times of trouble.

Is Healthcare a privilege or a right?

Our Lenten preaching series follows Jesus as he travels through his short life. We began in Bethlehem at his birth, and moved to Nazareth, where he spent much of his life. Last Sunday he was baptized in the Jordan River, and this week he will begin his ministry in Galilee. As Jesus begins his ministry, it isn't too long until we see how important good health is to Jesus. In his very short career in ministry Jesus is recorded in the Bible doing 31 healings. The healings cover a wide range of infirmities. He heals people who are blind, people with demons, a woman who had bleeding issues, a son with epilepsy, people who were ostracized with leprosy, and even someone with arthritis. Not once, in any of these healings does Jesus require those healed to give something to him. He gives the gift of health freely, without requiring anything in return.  He restores health to individuals, and by extension we also hear of healthy families.
