get up and eat

• August 12th, 2018

The need for weary ones to be nourished and tended is as old as Elijah, or older! Pr Joanne invites us to think about how we need to be tended and to tend others in our/their weariness so that we'll have strength for the journeys ahead. How might this relate to you?

a surge of hospitality

• August 5th, 2018

Our summer series ("Invitation: Joining God at Work in the World") continues with the story of Lydia as told in Acts 16:13-15. Pr Joanne helped us imagine the encounter, focusing on the way Lydia first responds to Paul and Co. but then extends her own invitation to them. She sees this as a give-and-take that's key to Christian community. It's also something we're living and learning as we receive Jose in sanctuary. How might your hospitality surge to welcome another, to give of what you have, to be changed in life together?
