  • Dance of Trinity…

    Come and celebrate our namesake!  It’s Trinity Sunday!  We’ll explore the interplay of the divine community of God, Christ, and Holy Spirit.  This makes a vital difference for us because we’re invited to live in the community too for the sake of all of creation.

  • The Spirit Leads…

    Pentecost is often a day of remembering and celebrating what really was a dramatic transformation in the lives of the disciples and those around them.  The coming of Holy Spirit unleashed a movement of God’s grace that still flows today.  Are we open and ready for the coming of the Spirit in each of us and all of us together?  ...

  • Who to Follow…

    Have we ever paused and considered to whom do we listen and follow?  Why?  What difference has it made in our lives?   Our scripture texts are favorites this week with Psalm 23’s “The Lord is my shepherd” and John 10’s “I am the Good Shepherd.”  I invite all of us to start pondering what it might look like to really ...

  • Dancing into Future…

    On that Easter day with Christ risen and alive, the disciples were unsure about their next steps.  Even with the joy they felt, they were disbelieving and wondering.  They did not know what was next.  Read Luke 24: 13-53 to see. Whenever we are uncertain, we like to fall back on what we know and have always done.  Christ invites ... Read More
