Prayer for the Week: Palm Sunday 2016 (March 20)

Crowds shout, palms branches wave, the heralded candidates enter the city! Political rally AND the scene in first century Jerusalem as we remember Jesus’ entry into the holy city. Jesus and the disciples, staging a counter demonstration to the corrupt and oppressive rule of Herod and the Roman occupying forces, uses symbols drawn from the more »

Prayer for the Week: April 28, 2014

Rev. Rachel preached a sermon illustrated by Bearington Bear and the inside, outside, upside downside ways we can feel about our lives and about our faith.

Prayer for the Week: March 17, 2014

This week’s gospel reminds of the story of a prominent citizen, a member of the establishment, who seeks out Jesus (the radical prophet) for a meeting.
