“Jostling for Position with God”

Gary Hall on Sunday, August 28, 2016:

“We deny and neglect the poor because we deny the possibility of being poor ourselves. Accepting one’s vulnerability is a hard but vital spiritual task. And it’s the basic first step of what it means to follow Jesus.”

“Sabbath for Truth”

Eric Law on Sunday, August 21, 2016:

“Sabbath is a time when we interrupt those things that give us tunnel vision; that make us only look at what’s in front of us and prevent us from seeing the big picture.”

“We Are Seekers of Truth, Keepers of Faith”

Zelda Kennedy on Sunday, August 14, 2016:

“As we become God’s presence in the lives of each other, we learn that life is about compassion, love, generosity, intimacy and sharing.”

“Hope Is a Verb”

Sally Howard on Sunday, August 7, 2016:

“We never know the rippling effects of the smallest act of kindness or generosity, but we can trust that no act, awake to compassion that cares for the vulnerability of others, is ever wasted.”

Making Art in this Time of War with Seema Sueko

Sunday, August 28

The Fantasticks is a musical that ultimately  teaches us how to love. We learn this by watching  Matt and Luisa’s journey: the false happy ending love, the  pulling apart and hurting each other, and finally, the return  and learning how to love deeply, maturely, selflessly. It’s a  lesson that is sorely needed today.”
