"The Rung of Community"

Luke 10:25-37  

Just then a religion scholar stood up with a question to test Jesus. “Teacher, what do I need to do to get eternal life?” Jesus answered, “What’s written in God’s Law? How do you interpret it?”

He said, “That you love the most-high God with all your heart and soul and strength and mind—and that you love your neighbor as yourself.” “Good answer!” said Jesus. “Do that and you’ll live.”

Looking for a loophole, the scholar asked, “And just how would you define ‘neighbor’?”

Jesus answered by telling a story. “There was once a man traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho. On the way he was attacked by robbers. They took his clothes, beat him up, and went off leaving him half-dead. Luckily, a priest was on his way down the same road, but when he saw him, he angled across to the other side. Then a Levite religious man showed up; he also avoided the injured man.

“A Samaritan traveling the road came upon him. When he saw the man’s condition, his heart went out to him. He gave him first aid, disinfecting and bandaging his wounds. Then he lifted him onto his donkey, led him to an inn, and made him comfortable. In the morning he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take good care of him. If it costs any more, put it on my bill—I’ll pay you on my way back.’

“What do you think? Which of the three became a neighbor to the man attacked by robbers?”

“The one who treated him kindly,” the religion scholar responded. Jesus said, “Go and do the same.”

*NEW* Agape MCC’s Holiday Series

"Ladder to the Light"

This series based on the visions and wisdom teachings of Steven Charleston, a member of the the Choctaw Nation, former Episcopal Bishop of Alaska, and President and Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School. Our guide will be his most recent book, Ladder to the Light; An Indigenous Elder’s Meditations on Hope and Courage.  

We will be climbing the ladder slowly throughout the upcoming holiday season, including Advent, and our ascent will culminate on Christmas Eve. Please join us beginning this Sunday as we make the descent into the Kiva. If you are practicing virtually, you have the advantage of creating your own sacred space and time for our gatherings. It should be a space that evokes cave energy, solitude, and closeness to the earth. We will talk more about that at this week’s gathering. See you in the Kiva.

Please join us as we remember those whose voices can no longer be heard.


As we embark upon the holiday season (and cooler weather!), we know there is a need to help those underserved in our community with staying warm and dry. 

To that end, City employees with the assistance of our Forest Hill Police Department, are seeking donations of new or gently used coats, sweaters, or jackets for distribution to our needy families between November 15th and December 17th. Items collected will be taken to our elementary schools, David K. Sellars and Harlean Beal by our Police Officers and children there will be given the opportunity to select something that will keep them warm. And while out on patrol, our officers will also supply coats to those families they find in need. 

We hope that you can join us and support our efforts to give our kids the gift of warmth and hope for a brighter tomorrow. 

You can drop off your donations at Agape' and we will deliver them for you.

All things come and go. Be at peace on this blessed day; whether it brings sunlight or storms, serenity or struggle. Be at peace in passing through it, doing what needs to be done, living fully as you can, as authentically as you can, at peace in your soul. Know that all things come and go on the way to where you are called to be. They pass around you, they pass over and under you, but they do not define you or contain you. For your life is not an inventory of pains or pleasures, but a sonnet of the spirit, a mystery fashioned from and for eternity, a strength so powerful that it can afford to be vulnerable to love. Be at peace on this blessed day.

Waiting isn't always easy... but that is what the season of Advent is about. It’s about waiting - not just any kind of waiting but active waiting. Active waiting, where we invite God's love and presence IN to all of our conversations, hopes and dreams so that we can prepare a way. Prepare the way - that we ourselves and the world can be transformed in the incarnation. And receiving the Christ Child again into our lives, into our hearts in ways that call us into being in the world that transforms it.

This is also World AIDS Day. The United Nations theme for World AIDS Day this year is to “end inequity, end AIDS and end pandemics.” We know about inequity. We know when Jesus was born during the Roman occupation, the people had waited a long time and were tired of waiting. We know about it during our time as people who embraced HIV/AIDS families and persons in our communities; who went bedside and prayed; who went to hospitals and visited; who walked them through to the memorial services. into resurrection. We know the exhaustion and the anger. We know the frustration. But actively we were present, showing God's love to all who needed it.

This day, in this time, with the COVID pandemic, again the disparities have been revealed. How will we be present with those who’ve had three vaccines, those who’ve had none, and those who’ve been unable to have a vaccine? We need to actively wait and ask God’s blessings in this time and in this season so that we again may be that love in the world that transforms; that we may be ready to receive the Christ Child anew in our hearts and our lives, in our church, in our community and our families; so that we may be the people of God’s love. God says the world is not the way I would have it be. You, my people, are my answer. 

Let us pray:

Holy God, give us the love and care to be your people during this time and in this place. May we Embrace Active Waiting to receive you anew this Christmas Eve. May we be your people in the world that show your love. Amen.
