Join us in person or online for worship. This week we celebrate the third Sunday of Lent. As we journey together this season, we reflect on the events of Jesus' last week of ministry before his death and resurrection. As we walk through the markan account of this tumultuous week, we wonder alongside the disciples how Jesus invites us to follow in the steps of his ministry of liberation. If you're interested in delving deeper into the Gospel of Mark, you may want to join in reading The Last Week: What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus's Final Days in Jerusalem by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. This book explores the political and socioeconomic conditions influencing Jesus' ministry. Watch the Stream on Youtube.

By addressing the root causes of hunger, we will make greater strides to not only nourishing bodies, but also nourishing souls and restoring dignity. No matter your capability or where you find the most joy, there is always a way to help.
This week we will think about courage and the courage it takes to wait. On the heels of the 50th Earth Day, we will also consider creation and our place in God's diverse and beloved community of life. Thanks to Lelia Midkiff for providing the beautiful watercolor above.
Normalcy seems to be an idea of the past. Why are we here and what are we to do? These questions are central to the biblical story as well as our current situation. This Sunday, we look back at the work of God through the people in exile. Their isolation and uncertainty are felt by us, and their hope for restoration can help us shape a promising future. Join us this week for a message from Charles Conkin.
Join us from your computers, tablets, phones, and televisions as we celebrate even in the midst of shadows. The image above is a painting by our own Charlotte Blaydes. She started painting during our watercolor workshop last fall and has already created this beautiful work. While we may be apart, we can still find little hopes and joys scattered about like a bright red cardinal or an evening stroll. This week during our prayer time, we'll invite our children to draw pictures of things they are grateful for.
