Daily Devotional Booklet

Daily Devotional Booklet.png

As you journey through this devotional at your own pace, you will find scriptures, poems, art, reflections, and hymns that are filled with promises of God’s abundant and expansive grace. Some of the stories you will encounter include: Jesus as a mother hen, a prodigal son welcomed home, a fig tree nurtured with care and hope, precious oil poured out lovingly and freely, and stones shouting out with praise. These sacred texts are brimming with a gospel of grace. We’ve done nothing to deserve or earn this grace, and yet, like water, it spills over. Follow this link to the Resources page and use the password provided to obtain your copy. A limited number of printed copies will be available from the office.

Join us as we return to in-person gatherings on March 2nd where we will be reminded of our frailty and connection to the Divine.

Ash Wednesday Event

We believe in an expansive love

that healed the sick,

welcomed the children,

and saw this world as it could be.

We believe that that expansive love

runs over the edges of our lives,

smoothing our rough places,

and pulling us home.

We call that expansive love

Yaweh and Mother God,

Jesus and Divine Creator.

Thanks be to God for a

Love like that. Amen.

Weekly Sunday Gatherings

We will gather each Sunday of the Lenten season to be reminded of God's expansive love for creation.

We will begin our journey on Sunday March 6th with a celebration of the Lord's Supper, so please, if you are participating via Facebook Live, have some bread and juice or wine nearby so you can participate fully.

On March 27th we will have a special Lenten themed Conversation Cafe via Zoom.  Watch for more information to come!
