“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

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″

Bring your backpacks, school supplies, and your hopes for the new year to our blessing of the backpacks service! Extra school supplies to donate will be welcome! And: after the service, we're all invited to the Ramsey's home for a BBQ and a pool party! See you tomorrow!

Children and youth make Godly Play materials to share with another church. Our organist is on vacation and Asher Hammond, a student from University of maryland, School of Music, did a great job in leading our worship service in music.
