Fall

How do we say that sacred word Fall: the story of the fall of humanity, where Adam and Eve are duped by the serpent — there at the tree of knowledge of Good and evil, where they fell from innocence. On Wednesday, we gather for “Sacred Words: Reclaim, Redefine, and Rediscover” — the second season…

God

Any time we use the sacred word God, we should remember that God is God and we are not. It should feel as if our words are being stretched to their very limits—where there is always more for us to discover and to learn. On Wednesday, we gather for “Sacred Words: Reclaim, Redefine, and Rediscover”…

Salvation

If we reduce the conversation about Salvation only in terms of death, we inadvertently leave out so much of the life of Jesus; because Jesus lived for the same things he died. On Wednesday, we gather for “Sacred Words: Reclaim, Redefine, and Rediscover” — the second season in the devotional series Creating Sacred Space in…

Mystery

God does not need our defense. God does not call us to protect God. We are called, rather, to embody the Love of God. On Wednesday, we gather for “Sacred Words: Reclaim, Redefine, and Rediscover” — the second season in the devotional series Creating Sacred Space in Our Lives presented by Tripp Martin, pastor of…

Prayer

Prayer is engaging with God in such a way that we look through these lenses and see the world — or God, or ourselves, or our situation, or our neighbor — differently. On Wednesday, we gather for “Sacred Words: Reclaim, Redefine, and Rediscover” — the second season in the devotional series Creating Sacred Space in…

Faithful

We must be careful how we describe the meaning of “Faithful” — unpacking it, and choosing words that we might use in everyday language. And “Faithful” is such an important word, because it describes the very character of God, and — as we have been created in God’s image — a word that describes us,…

Sacred Words

We always — from generation to generation — need to reclaim, redefine, and rediscover what our sacred words mean. We are to tell our story: to be genuine and authentic about who we are — not only to those inside the church, but to those that we meet and share life with, wherever it takes…

Learning to Pray

Other people’s prayers are to lead us to our own words — to help us unearth how to say what we need to say that is authentic and genuine in our lives. On Wednesday, we gather to reflect on “Creating Sacred Space in Our Lives” — a devotional series presented by Tripp Martin, pastor of…

Our Work

Sometimes we might feel as if our work is too practical to also be spiritual. How can our work have implications for our faith? Or, how can our faith have implications for our work? But, what if what we do with our lives — our work and our efforts — could mirror God’s work: God’s…

The Priority of Community

As we practice community — or even prioritize community — we hope to learn to love our neighbor as our self: where, in the diversity of the Community of Faith, we learn that everyone is our neighbor. On Wednesday, we gather to reflect on “Creating Sacred Space in Our Lives” — a devotional series presented…
