Congregation News and Updates

Excerpt from A Prayer For A Heavy World by Kaitlin Curtice: O God, this morning when we woke to your presence in and around us, we also woke to a heavy world, and in this world, we can’t make sense of all the things that are wrong and should be made right. We cannot fathom that people are judged on the color of their skin, that lives are worth less because their pockets are empty, that violence is an everyday occurrence, and it seems that no place is safe. So when we wake to the sunrise and know that you are still good, teach us what it means to seek goodness when the world is dark. Amen.

MAY MISSION SUPPORT MEMO

Plus join us Monday, May 20th for a fabulous webinar on "STORY MATTERS" from Rev. Heather Roth-Johnson, a storyteller, a public speaker, a workshop leader, a writer and in general just a creative soul.
