From Our Pastor
Dear Friends,

As June begins, we give thanks for warmer weather and sand. We give thanks for graduates and for fathers. We look forward to worshipping outside on June 27. Maybe its just me—but I look forward to so very much. I look forward to vaccination rates continuing to rise. I look forward to working through our young people favorite fairy tales, timeless as they are. But most of all, I look forward to being able to see more of you again.  

Last weekend, I met a family who gathered for a committal service for their mother who had died some years before. It was a sacred moment in the rolling seas, and spitting rain as her ashes were committed to the deep. It reminded me of the sacredness of the moments we share—how despite all family differences there was a sense of shared sorrow at saying goodbye and joy at remembering this dear woman they loved. 

The season of our common life that is changing now is significant. There has been great cost—both in human life and in economic and business. Disruption sounds too tame to describe it. And in the this moment, maybe as spring gives way to summer, we ought to take a few moments to take stock of where we are, what we’ve come through and where we’re headed. God has been with us, remains with us, and leads us forward to the future.

help us to discern;
when fear makes it hard to breathe,
and anxiety seems to be the order of the day,
slow us down, God; read more...

Lord, we pray we never find ourselves without hope, without a glimpse of the empty tomb each time we happen upon a cross. Help us begin our daily journey expecting both crosses and empty tombs and rejoicing when we encounter either because we know you are with us. Amen.
