      For many different reasons, these days, I’ve been thinking about oceans, and deep waters ….


      …. not least of which are these wonderful underwater, oceanic decorations filling this chancel and sanctuary, in preparation for this upcoming week’s Vacation Bible School….

      I don’t normally enjoy watching horror type movies.

      (Confirmation Sunday)



      Wisdom. To do the "wise thing…" we say.


      Isn’t that what we all want?


      From the day you were born – Alyssa, Peter, Adam and Claire – this is likely what your parents and grandparents have always wanted and wished – and probably also worried about -- for you: that as...

      From a boisterous fortune teller, to a fortuitous earthquake!
      It’s a breathtaking story.

      And this is what I notice about it:
      Like the call to Paul and Silas, the call of God is one that involves motion, movement, a going forth, a...
