“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
A big thank you to both Chloe and Bill for leading our worship services while Pastor Sirmons was on vacation. Next Sunday, our children and youth will visit a shelter and present care packages that they put together last week.
Our vegetable card is producing lots of tomatoes, squash, okra, mint, rosemary and other produce. We have had our Box Out Homelessness" Sunday. In our current UCCA Hot News are new pictures of this event. Save the date: August 24 the Ramsey's have invited us to their home for a picnic and a swim. Ho…
Pictures are from Sunday's worship service in the sanctuary with communion outside followed by a picnic. The explorations, our older youth group, spent the previous evening outside sleeping in cardboard boxes as the homeless do. They had met a homeless couple living under a bridge. The topic "Box Out" tells us that we can do something about homelessness. The whole event was a wonderful and meaningful experience for everyone.
