Worship for June 6, 2021

Welcome to worship. This has been a difficult week. We are still overwhelmed by the news from Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc (known by Settlers as Kamloops, British Columbia). What should also overwhelm us is the fact that much of this damage was done by the church. In the name of Jesus. That’s how we justified it,Continue reading “Worship for June 6, 2021”

Prayers for the Children

We are horrified. Two hundred and fifteen children, buried in a mass grave, with no marker, no recognition, and most with no notice to family. This is wrong on so many levels that the mind reels.

Worship during Pandemic – May 6, 2020

“We can’t gather as the church.” That’s what we are telling ourselves, isn’t it? Since health officials are telling us to keep practicing “Social Distancing,” we are forced to stay home on Sunday. (I’ll bet you already know where this is going, don’t you?) But we are not just The Church when we are sittingContinue reading “Worship during Pandemic – May 6, 2020”
