Sundays @ 9:15  
Join us on January 19 at 9:15 am as we begin our discussion on Travelling Mercies, by Anne Lamott.  Her book is described in this way: “At once tough, personal, affectionate, wise, and very funny, Traveling Mercies tells in exuberant detail how Anne Lamott learned to shine the light of faith on the darkest part of ordinary life, exposing surprising pockets of meaning and hope.an accessible and heart warming account of her journey of faith.”

We will be reading this book as we prepare ourselves for our Lenten program.   During Lent we will have a unique opportunity to study the process of traditional book binding by preparing personal journals in which we too will begin to write our own unique spiritual autobiographies. At the conclusion of Lent we will bind together our reflections into personal volumes containing our sacred stories.   

COMMUNITY MEAL, 
Our monthly community meal will resume on the first Sunday in October following worship.  Please feel free to join us in worship at 10:15.  The community meal begins following worship, at 11:30 am in the fellowship space beneath the church.  There is no cost, the focus is on fellowship and friend making, and all are welcomed.

 Stones into Bread



The Fountain thirsts, the Bread is hungry here

The Light is dark, the Word without a voice.

When darkness speaks it seems so light and clear.

Now He must dare, with us, to make a choice.

In a distended belly’s cruel curve

He feels the famine of the ones who lose

He starves for those whom we have forced to starve

He chooses now for those who cannot choose.

He is the staff and sustenance of life

He lives for all from one Sustaining Word

His love still breaks and pierces like a knife

The stony ground of hearts that never shared,

God gives through Him what Satan never could;

The broken bread that is our only food.

From the Lent Anthology, The Word in the Wilderness.Malcolm Guite.
