Go Scared

The Bible references fear a lot, encouraging us to not be afraid and reminding us that God is with us in the ups and downs, the hills and valleys, the sunny days and the storms. What better time to revisit one of the many scripture passages that invite us to understand our fear through the lens of our faith, seeking God’s word, God’s presence, God’s guidance and God’s peace.

Celebrating Pastor Bob’s Legacy

This Sunday we say farewell to our beloved pastor of six years – Pastor Bob. Our very own Ron Jessee leads our beautiful farewell service, giving thanks for the time that we have benefited from Bob’s leadership.  It would be irresponsible, however, if we fail to acknowledge our final Sunday together will be tinted with sadness.

Don’t Worry

Today’s sermon is the Genesis narrative of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar. How does God meet us in our pan, anxiety, and estrangement?
Next Steps

Next Steps

One of my core understandings of God is through the concept of call. I believe that God calls to us, speaks to us, invites us into relationship, and invites us into action. We have spoken about the Pentecost work that must be done in the face of the profound pain we can see in the world. Have the courage to take these steps even if you do not know where they will lead. Have the courage to go to unexpected places, figuratively or literally, and discover that in doing so you are responding to God’s divine call.

I Am Always with You

The gospel lesson for this Trinity Sunday is the part where Jesus ascends to heaven after his resurrection on earth. The disciples have lost him once and they are all the more frightened to lose him once again. But as Jesus ascends, he shares these words: “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
