It is good to be back with you again after being away in Chicago. I bring greetings from over forty different congregations whose pastors I was studying with. We read today that God’s word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path; if there is one thing I took from the time I spent with all those pastors and all of our professors in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools’ Preaching Program it is just that: God’s word is alive and well, and it is indeed a lamp and a light – a bit of a controversial claim to make, especially in light of what we learned while we were in Chicago.
It was tough to sit inside and write this week. A lot going on plus many days were simply gorgeous. Not too hot – a nice breeze, everything coming up roses – literally – and everything deep lush shades of green. Heck there was even a family of bunny rabbits in my backyard. ‘Summer was here and the livin was easy’ as the song goes. And so the first reading for today seemed serendipitous – it seemed that what was in front of my eyes pointed me to love – seemed to be just right for my mood and the time of year. –
You are welcome here!
We are a dynamic and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Canada, with a tradition of strong preaching, fine music, and compassionate outreach.
There is a welcome here for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, racial and ethnic backgrounds, family configurations, abilities, and economic status to attend, join, celebrate life passages, and participate with us in the call to learn, grow and serve as disciples of Christ.
