Upcoming Events

Sunday, September 14, 2014 The Fourteenth Sunday of Pentecost

Welcome to worship today. As we reflect on the Exodus segment of Moses leading the Israelites through the parting of the Red Sea, here are some “pithy” quotes for us to consider (below) - on this matter of walking by faith or “stepping out” in faith. Who knows, perhaps this will be the third in a sermon series we’ve been respectfully calling “The Practice of Ministry for Dummies”. May you be blessed by your time here and at Christ’s extravagant welcome table.

" Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be a better light, and safer than a known way." "The Gate of the Year" (corrected from John of the Cross) Louise Haskins,

"When author Madeleine L'Engle was asked, "Do you believe in God without any doubts?" she replied, “I believe in God with all my doubts.'" Bruce Epperly, Christian Century 1-26-10

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers." M. Scott Peck

"We make the road by walking." Paulo Freire

"In South Africa in 1987, Nelson Mandela was still in prison, and the world thought for good. School children were being killed daily by government police, and the struggle seemed to be at a standstill. I met a 14-year-old boy who was, like many there, organizing in elementary and high schools. I asked him if he was optimistic for the future and he said, 'Yes.' I asked him if he thought there would be a new, free South Africa someday, and he stated to me matter-of-factly, “I shall see to it personally.” ...There is simply no other alternative than for each person to see to it personally." A story from Jim Wallis

Thursday, September 18th

Grief Share Grief and Loss support group meets this final Thursday of the summer season at the Scott parsonage at 6PM. Thanks to all who attended over the summer and we pray, benefited from this time of sharing, learning, and healing. A hearty thanks to Marinan Keeling for her inspiration and perseverance in helping to lead us. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of her home Cowboy Fellowship in Pleasanton, we will be purchasing study materials for the next round, perhaps sometimes this winter.
