George Regas, “Pentecost Updated”


George Regas preaching at All Saints Church on Pentecost Sunday, June 8:

“Pentecost, with its brilliant proclamation of our common humanity, can still illuminate our path to peace.

Susan Russell: “Aligned with God’s Love”

 
Susan Russell preaching on Sunday, May 25:

“The short answer is that God so loved the world that God became one of us in order to show us how to love one another. The slightly longer answer is that Jesus came to show us the way — spent his earthly live modeling the way — and that way is to be so aligned with God’s love, so connected to God’s love, so empowered by God’s love that nothing — not even death — can get in the way.”
