Restorative Justice

Elle Dowdy poem (lost her daughter on 2/9/2009 to drunk driver Alan) 

 What If 
What if, the word that frees
our hearts and souls is simply ‘yes’?
As we reach to open the door to love,
we realize we are on the inside of
God’s own heart – a heart filled with
Infinite Love, Wild Joy,
and Unspeakable Grace.
We find we reside in an Ocean of Acceptance
that is our home, our starting point,
our birthright, inheritance and
the ‘great jumping off place’.
What if this is the Secret and the
pearl of great price (value) – that when we say
‘yes’ to the Bright Light of Love –a fire is kindled in us that burns
bright and hot and steady.  A holy fire which burns up all that is not Love and fills us with Love Itself?

What if?

“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives.”Abhay Kumar

8:30 a.m. Quiet Reflective Service

March 31, 2019
08:30 AM / 09:30 AM

The early morning service (a more contemplative tone) continues!! But we have changed the time from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.  The liturgy for the 8:30 a.m. service will be similar to the 10:30 a.m. celebration with the same sermon and texts, and Communion on the first Sunday of the month. The 8:30 a.m. service will not have musicians, except on rare occasion, with longer spaces for silence and reflection built into the flow of the service. There will not be Fellowship Time afterwards unless that evolves on its own.

WELCOME!

As a community of faith, we know some measure of God's grace, compassion, mercy, justice and peace, and it is our desire to share that love with you regardless of your age, race, gender, marital status, physical condition, sexual orientation, ethnic or economic background.

Large print worship bulletins are available in binders at the back of the sanctuary. Our ushers are happy to assist you.

Please join us for fellowship following the worship service.  ~ Rev. Dr. Curran Reichert
