Evening Reflection June 8, 2020

Dear Siblings in Christ, The past week has been difficult. If you’ve been tuning into the news, it seems the world is falling apart at the seams! Pandemic, racism, riots, social distancing – they’ve all become a part of our vocabulary these past days...

Evening Reflection-June 1, 2020

Dear Friends, As I look ahead to next Sunday when we celebrate The Holy Trinity, I have been reflecting on how one “person” is not enough to contain God – that we have been given the gift of the Trinity to more fully embrace God, or rather be...

Evening Reflection-May 31, 2020

Dear Siblings in Christ, Today the sun shone through the trees with their new leaves, and in the wind, the light danced on the walls of my study. The sky was vibrant blue. The lilacs are blooming and are giving off the most intoxicating scent. Everything outside seems...

Evening Reflections-April 20, 2020

Pastor’s Post-January 2020

Dear Friends, As Christmas passes, the guests go home and cookies I baked grow stale. The garland and the tree are dropping needles and looking droopy. It’s time for us to take down the extra candles and snowmen and reindeer that have popped up around the house....
