“If we are to love, it is not some namby-pamby thing of nice sentimental thoughts. It is being willing to take the blame for the ones whom you engage with. You could easily say, then, that the one who was without sin, Jesus, was blamed by the authorities, those people in power, for the manners and outcastedness of those with whom he walked alongside.” –from Rev. Sirmons’ sermon “Speak!” 4 February 2013
‘[H]ow is it that we see fields of hope in our own world today? How is it that we as a community of faith, and people of faith, make the decisions to know with confidence and certainty that we are making the right choice, that we are letting go of the “fictions of control”, as Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, said, and instead walking with God in our decisions?’ –from sermon “Let go and let God” 29 September 2013
“When I love my God, I love you – and you – and you – and you out there who cannot even hear me. Through this utter selflessness faith grows. That’s the hope, anyway, and it grows even without clear-cut good and evil. Do you know if you are rich, or if you are poor? By whose standards? Only you can figure that out, and how you answer will depend on your answer to the first question: what do you love when you love your God?” –from sermon “Your Faith is growing abundantly (for the Love of God!), 3 November 2013″
2014-12-18 Community Meal by the Light House Shelter (13 photos) ... See MoreSee Less
We had a full house for our Community Meal tonight. Gregg, Marcus and Linda provided us with a delicious meal. In addition Kathy tried to get the most dramatic picture of UCCA's new manger scene in front of the church. Thank you Bob for taking the time to make this wonderful scene. Each picture is slightly different. Which one do you like best?
