Note from Rev. Wynn
"Here We Go Again" we go again! This Sunday we will be exploring another outlandish miracle story involving Jesus. If last week's story of Jesus feeding the 5000 is possibly one of the most popular stories from the Bible, then Jesus walking on water has got to be a close second. It too has been analyzed, picked apart, and debated for thousands of years. Like our current super polarized political system...emotions are running high, beliefs are cemented and non negotiable, and we are all sure that we are right. Most of us were taught that this is a story about having faith in God, seems plausible...what if we're all wrong? See you Sunday!

Give Yourself Grace - Kind Over Matter

When you're doing hard things. When you're going through change. When you're noticing old patterns creeping back in. When you don't feel like you showed up at your best. When you're lost in the whirling dervish of busy. When your heart feels...

A Prayer for our World

God of creation, Great Spirit, we give you thanks
You have given into our care this earth
The lakes and rivers, the trees and flowers
The sand and cactus, the snow and the rain,
The warmth of the sun and the vastness of the night sky
All of these, into our care.
We have used the earth, we have spent her resources
We have not cared for her creatures.
We have been a people of consumption
In a world that needs tender nurturing.
Help us to be a changed people
Tending the earth, repairing the damage
Treating each gift, of air, of plants, water
With the care they deserve, that we deserve
Help us to treasure each running brook, each glass of water
Each step on the earth to treat as sacred
When we see a bird winging its way across the sky
May they echo our prayers to you God, taking flight
As we feel each gentle breeze, or the bite of winter days
May we treat them as your caress
Help us to be your caretakers
With awe and with reverence
Faithfully tending this earth that you gave us,
May we value each tribe, each nation, each way
May all our colors be known as Sacred
May all our genders be a celebration
Let these be our promises to you, oh One Who Creates With Love,
To live more simply, value more deeply this precious gift of Our Earth!
To honor and protect the two leg-geds, the peoples of the world,
Your tender Creation
And to treat each one with kindness and love.
To take the time to listen for your voice on the wind,
In the heat of the sun, in the falling rain and the biting cold of the snow,
We will listen with our whole being and respond to your call.
In all the ways you are known and yet to be known, we offer our all. Amen
