Our reading from Genesis today is from Chapter 1. “God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.” Reflection – All of creation is described as “good.” How do you understand the word “good” in this context? Can you apply it to these strange days? See you tomorrow!

We are reading the Bible together for the next year. This first month we will read Genesis. Take a look at this brief outline, to get an overview of the stories. See you tomorrow!

To that end, with the pick up in activity in our Fall season, she is asking us to join her in a year of reading the Bible. Each day, a couple verses and a couple questions will beContinue reading “Reading the Bible”
Getting Ready – What our Gatherings will Look Like
The Council of Zion has put the following video together to help members understand how our Sunday services will look for the next while.

Worship in Interesting Times

Then it was going to be Covid-19. Then it was going to be “murder hornets.” Now it’s the murderContinue reading “Worship in Interesting Times”
Worship for June 7, 2020
This is Holy Trinity Sunday. It’s an anomaly as far as church festivals go. It’s not based on a story (like Pentecost or the Epiphany). It’s not celebrating part of Jesus’ life (like Christmas or Easter). It’s not remembering a person (like one of the saints or martyrs). Instead, it’s proclaiming a doctrine, a teaching,Continue reading “Worship for June 7, 2020”
