This Week's Communion Hymn:

Borning Cry
By John Ylvisaker

I was there to hear your borning cry,
I'll be there when you are old.
I rejoiced the day you were baptized,
to see your life unfold.

I was there when you were but a child,
with a faith to suit you well;
In a blaze of light you wandered off
to find where demons dwell.

When you heard the wonder of the Word
I was there to cheer you on;
You were raised to praise the living Lord,
to whom you now belong.

If you find someone to share your time
and you join your hearts as one,
I'll be there to make your verses rhyme
from dusk 'till rising sun.

In the middle ages of your life,
not too old, no longer young,
I'll be there to guide you through the night,
complete what I've begun.

When the evening gently closes in,
and you shut your weary eyes,
I'll be there as I have always been
with just one more surprise.

I was there to hear your borning cry,
I'll be there when you are old.
I rejoiced the day you were baptized,
to see your life unfold.

Many hymns address God from the human perspective, but few address humanity from God's point of view. The spirit of "Borning Cry" is one of a God who loved us from the beginning of time and continues to love us throughout the seasons of our life.   Originally created to accompany a video series on baptism, this hymn speaks in the imagined conversational voice of God, assuring the person being baptized of God's presence throughout the changing stages of life. It offers a reminder that baptism is a once-in-a-lifetime event.
Virgil Eugene (Gene) Fuller

Our families would like to thank everyone that helped make the Memorial Service for my husband, Gene Fuller, so beautiful.  
                     My heart is heavy,

People have been gathering in public spaces for ages, talking about life, philosophy, faith, doubt, and deep questions of meaning. Recently, many people are re-discovering the pub and tavern as a safe space to explore and express questions, learn from others, and engage with other traditions and perspective. Throughout time, profound insights have their origins paired with a pint. The pub is a space of freedom and a place to reflect on the technical layers of complexity in the drinks we imbibe and the philosophy and theology in which we share. 

Join us the second Tuesday of the month and bring your questions, curiosity, and readiness to engage and wrestle as we pursue the Divine in the seemingly least likely of places.
