Knit Together

This Summer I started knitting for the very first time.  After some coaching from our fearless leader, Liz McCubbin, I took my needles and yarn home to get to work. In about ten minutes, I managed to mess things up royally.  The next week I brought my tangled mess back to the class, and Liz was able to miraculously resurrect my feeble attempts into something identifiable as knitting.  This pattern continued for several weeks, but each time I managed to work a little longer before things devolved into entropy.

Next Steps -by Mark J.

During the summer, we will be offering "Next Steps."  It will provide a way to follow-up from the previous Sunday's theme with a very specific course of action.  These steps might invite further reading and study, or introduce and teach a welcoming and deepening spiritual practice, or suggest a change in behavior, to join a plan of service or to set in motion a specific way to offer a helping hand to someone in need.

Reimagining Earth as a Beloved Community -by Aaron

Last week I was in Dayton for the Alliance of Baptists Gathering. And I must say, as an Alliance congregation, I think we're in good company.  From challenging speakers and thoughtful presenters to gracious and welcoming hosts, the Alliance continues to surprise me with it's ever-widening welcome and it's dedication to issues of justice for all people.
