Despite Fear

The angel’s words, “Do not be afraid,” are words that are repeated over and over again throughout scripture. What did Mary make of those words? What do they mean to us as we move through this Advent season? How do we take them to heart and what difference do they make in our own lives that are so often touched by anxiety and fear?

We Remember Them

Has a loved one in your life passed this year? Join us as we light candles and remember the saints of our lives.

Supersize

How much is “enough” and what does God want from us when it comes to managing our resources?

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

Is Jesus still in the habit of inviting himself over for dinner? How might we respond to such an invitation? And how would our response shape our ability and desire to gather at Christ’s table with siblings near and far, like us and very different?

Holding Fast to Life

We continue in the Gospel of Luke, a gospel that focuses our attention again and again on our use of resources and our treatment of those in society who are most vulnerable.

Shrewd in Spirit

Today we spend time with possibly Jesus’ most perplexing parable! Why on earth does Jesus seem to commend the dishonest manager and what is Jesus, along with the gospel writer, Luke, trying to tell us about money, resources and fullness of life?

Lost

Today marks the 21st anniversary of 9/11. We lost so many and so much on that day, yet we have a God who searches wholeheartedly for each one.

Table Talk

Jesus attended a dinner at the home of one of the religious leaders.  Jesus offered advice about more than just table manners…he was talking about Kingdom manners.
