  • “Our Third Principle”

    The first and seventh principles get all the glory. This Sunday we celebrate number three: acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations. What may appear to be two separate projects are woven together in the journey of congregational life.

  • “Being Present - to Homelessness”

    Too often we cling to fantasies or memories; too often we distract ourselves from what is right in front of us. While we learn about housing insecurity and homelessness this Sunday, we practice the invaluable skill of being present.
