I wonder if you have been watching or reading the stories from the 10th anniversary of the Katrina hurricane.

Living Out Our Faith in Action

July 19, 2015

As a university student, every year I attended a conference with students from all around the country, at the same conference center each time, about a thousand miles away. Every year, when the long bus ride was over and we saw the sign for the center we laughed. It was called CYARA – Come ye apart and rest awhile. We knew that for a week we were not going to rest at all!

Room for All God's Children!

July 5, 2015

In the name of our loving, living, life-giving God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.

This is one of those passages we need to unpack to see what it means for us today.

Trinity Sunday: God, In Relationship

May 31, 2015

Jesus said, Who do people say that I am? 

And his disciples answered and said, Some say you are John the Baptist returned from the dead; others say Elijah,  or another of the old prophets. 

And Jesus answered and said, But who do you say that I am? 

The Great Commandment

May 10, 2015

The Beatles song really did get it right. All you need is love. This is really very simple, yet really complex when we try to live it out in our complex world. This week, the focus is again on God’s love, and abiding in God’s love. We are still in the middle of Jesus’ farewell discourse in the upper room, his last words to his disciples.
