Reflection 11.17.17

11/17/2017

All of us live by some vision. It may be a depressing vision. It may be a very limited vision. It may be a vision that it’s all going to pieces. But there is a vision, conscious or unconscious, that each of us lives by. If it’s a dark vision, one that’s moving toward disintegration and chaos, then we will be fearful. If it’s a larger vision, if it’s a universal vision, if it’s a vision of God’s Realm and we really believe that it’s going to come into being, we’ll be filled with hope. Hope is the confidence that the vision which is the biblical vision will really occur. And no one is going to be excluded.

Thanksgiving Dinner Service + Cena y Servicio de Adoración de Acción de Gracias: 11.22.17

11/16/2017

Join us for Thanksgiving eve worship service and dinner on Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 6:30pm. Giving thanks is a central spiritual practice in our faith, as is the sharing of meals together. Please get your ticket on Sunday after worship so we know how much food to prepare. The meal is free, but we do ask that you make a donation–whatever you are able–to help offset the cost of the dinner.

Únase a nosotros para la cena y el servicio de adoración en víspera de Acción de Gracias el miércoles 22 de noviembre a las 6:30 pm. Dar gracias es una práctica espiritual central en nuestra fe, como es la disposición a disfrutar en compañía nuestras comidas juntas. Por favor de obtener su boleto el domingo después de la adoración para así saber la cantidad de comida a preparar. La comida es gratis, pero le pedimos que haga una donación – lo que usted pueda – para ayudar a compensar el coste de la cena.

“Listen!” … I could spend the rest of my life pondering on the implications of that one word. It plunges me at once into a personal relationship. It takes me away from the danger of talking about God and not communing with [God].
