“Connected through Grief”– John 18: 33-38a– Nov. 22, 2015

At the end of a week of such violence and heartbreak–not only bombings and shootings in Paris and the ongoing search for accomplices in Belgium and beyond, but also hostage-taking in Bamako, Mali, ongoing violence in Iraq and Lebanon, in Afghanistan and Nigeria, in cities of our country, in places known and unknown to us, in places near and far, …

Pet Pourri

An inter-generational work-bee on Saturday November 14 was a lot of fun. We made toys, fleece beds, treats and more for dogs and cats, as well as seed wreaths for birds. These environmentally friendly gifts for animals and animal-lovers will be sold at the Pet-Pourri table, a new and special feature of the 2015 Snowball Bazaar. Crafted by the Eaarth …

Fall cleanup

Despite the cool and windy Saturday, a good turn-out of hardy congregation members brought rakes, leaf blowers and tarps to collect the fallen autumn leaves and spruce up our church grounds before winter. Coffee, donuts and homemade chocolate chip cookies helped to warm the hard-working crew, which finished all the leaves before noon.

“When Enough Isn’t Enough”– 1 Samuel 1:4-20, Mark 13:1-8 –Nov. 15, 2015

Yesterday morning I re-read the sermon I had written on Friday and decided it wasn’t enough. It was perfectly adequate, but it wasn’t enough for the world we were reminded we live in after the attacks in Paris Friday night. Of course, it’s the same world that people in Iraq and Beirut and Afghanistan know all too well, but we …

“You want me to give what?!”- I Kings 17:8-16, Mark 12:38-44– Nov. 8, 2015

Two widows, both possibly in their last days, both at the end of their resources certainly. The word “widow” in Hebrew means “silenced one,” “one who has no voice” [Seasons of the Spirit, 11/8/15] –and neither of these women, like so many other women in the Bible, are given a name. So, no time, no resources, no voice, no name. …

“Saints in the Making”- Ruth 1:1-18, Mark 12:28-34– Nov. 1, 2015

“Saints in the Making”- Ruth 1:1-18, Mark 12:28-34– Nov. 1, 2015 All Saints’ Day–the “hallow” part of “Halloween.” The same as the word used in the King James version of the Lord’s Prayer–”hallowed be Thy name,” [not Harold, as some may presume]. “Holy be Your name.” All Saints’ Day. We Protestants don’t quite know what to do with saints. It …

“It’s your lucky day!”- Jeremiah 31:7-9, Mark 10:46-52– Oct. 25, 2015

If you had the chance to come before someone who you believed actually could do for you whatever you asked, what would you ask? If you’re like me, you may not have spent too much time thinking about it. After all, it’s one thing to fantasize about what you would do if you won the Publishers’ Clearinghouse sweepstakes or the …
