Weekly Minute with Pastor Susan

Dear ones, I pray that you are all staying well and avoiding high risk places and activities as we move into our fifth month of this new, crazy life I’ve begun calling “Covid-Chaos 2020.” For many (if not most) of us this has added a layer of stress to our already complex lives. We know that intermittent stress can be good for us (that’s another article) but when it becomes chronic it can affect all aspects of our health. So please remember to do the things that keep you grounded in life......

Weekly Minute From Pastor Susan

Thanks to all who made possible the commemoration of the Emanuel Nine and lament for the lives lost to the sins of racism and white supremacy. Special thanks to our guest soloist Janine Fuller, who moved us greatly with her music and her willingness to be present. Despite our technical problems that delayed the start of the service and the unusual length due to the extra litanies, many of you stuck with us. I hope it was a meaningful time for each of you. The service was recorded and is available on......

A Note From The Parish Nurse

God’s blessings to each of you!  As I watch my container garden grow with yellow squash, zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, and basil, I am reminded of God’s loving care for us. God knows just what my garden needs. Food, water, soil, and light. Just as God knows what each plant needs, He knows what each of you need. Food, both physical and spiritual; water, both physical and transformational; soil, both physical roots and spiritual grounding; and LIGHT, both physical, spiritual, and God’s word. During this time of the unknown, where everything changes day......
