An Eye For An Eye

How many times should we forgive? We all tend to carry baggage related to forgiveness, sometimes hauling it along with us all our lives until it becomes so heavy we just can’t carry it anymore.

Taking the Initiative

As a faith community, we are bound together and address conflict in a different way, taking the initiative to seek genuine reconciliation.

Finding Life

What does it look like for you to “give your life away”? Join us as we reflect on suffering, salvation, and our faith journeys.

Solid Enough?

“Who do you say that I am?” When Jesus asks this of his disciples, Simon answers without hesitation, and Jesus names him Peter, his “rock.” In your spiritual journey, have you sensed a “change of name” or a change of identify?

Crossing Boundaries

Join us as we wrestle with this text, exploring the response of Jesus and the disciples to this desperate mother. Let us open our minds and hearts to the voices challenging us to expand our understanding of God’s mercy and to whom it belongs.

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.

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.
