Church Inside Out

Today in the midst of a pandemic, the traditional ways of welcoming and being welcomed are turned inside out.

Sparrows and Hairs and Swords and Crosses

What if the only thing that divided us was whether or not we are following Jesus above all else?

Faith in the Forge

The reality is that the best way to learn how to get through a hard time is to get through a hard time.  Whether we do it well or not, we learn what worked and what didn’t and we use that the next time we encounter hard times. We also get help in this from seeing how other people get through, and by encouraging each other to see that we can get through it, with God’s help.

Made in God’s Image

Unpredictable

In our listening, may we be transformed by the renewing of our minds as the Holy Spirit changes the way we listen and think and live, and may we be open to the unpredictable and powerful and beautiful Holy Spirit.
