Our scripture passage this week invites us into a conversation about the issue of good and evil. As people who seek to align ourselves with love on individual, community and systemic levels, what do we do with the weeds when they look like the wheat?
This year Pride is very different due to COVID-19, but the spirit of Pride prevails. In worship, we will share photos from the past as well as hear from some of our congregation via video clips as they reflect on Pride, what it means to them and how they are celebrating despite COVID limitations.
All of us have “sacred pillars,” ways that we mark and remember our encounters with the living God. Some of those “pillars” might be tangible, real physical objects like Jacob’s anointed stone. Other pillars might be more theoretical…ideas or values or beliefs that become touchstones for us throughout our lives. Based on your life journey, what are the beliefs/practices/principles that guide you? What are your “sacred pillars?”
This Sunday Pastor Lori will be joining us for her first Sunday at PB UMC! We have the honor of having Mavi Barrena as our speaker, leading us through a reflection on John 21:1-14. Mavi will help us reflect on the ways God is not only present in the midst of change, but how God invites us to change…to do things differently in ways that can lead to new hope, new abundance, and new life.
