This is the bonding of the community, and those who are pulled towards our shores.

A moment when the weight of the world, cupped in our hearts, can be fluidly poured into candles before us

and in that moment allows us to just be sisters and brothers in Christ and in Faith

in laughter and in joy

We open our souls to those who have been pulled, whom the Creator has whispered

who have been drawn to where we are, to explore exactly what this is. 

Thankful that our Seminary Sampler guests joined in fellowship with us.

Technology seems to always be at our  fingertips, even when we strive to pass the peace, connecting hands

Never more so did we cling to technology this week as we awaited the call to answer the question..

What Synod?

We remain vigilant and vigil as one by one we receive the call, 

yet not fully exhaling until all of us receive the call

holden

We remain hopeful; there is a reason why we are here,

as these tealights shine softly in this sacred space

so too, we pray that our voices which are lifted up for those whose voices are not heard

beginning to transform this place

one person at a time.


Where Christ Dwells: The Poor Christ-a #reLent Journey

The presence of the poor makes us uncomfortable….101038280-104511048.530x298

because we are reminded that we too, could be thrust into the outskirts of this society

Least of These

It is interesting that there are those who claim that they are Christians…

but there actions are not Christ-like.

Therefore, we turn in to what our community can give, and care for one another

Or perhaps, the masses are waiting for someone else to care for those that the Creator calls for us to care for

“if there is no friendship with them, the poor and no sharing of the life of the poor, 

then there is no authentic commitment to liberation because only love exists among equals”

“For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’”
