"A Place of Mystery and the Unknown" - Rev. Jennifer Gleichauf

Posted on March 8, 2020 by Kathy Miller

Some of these signs are obvious and clear, but often, especially in the wilderness it can be hard to decipher them, especially if our own sense of panic is rising.  So, it is important for us to learn how to see the signs.  This is one of the opportunities of Lent – to spend time fine tuning our senses to recognize God’s signs.  Leaning into our practices of prayer and worship and discernment and deepening our relationship with God and each other, so we know what the signs look like.  Because when our eyes and ears and hearts get used to seeing the signs in our regular life, we are all the more likely to see them in our wildernesses, whether they are as clear as the entire night sky of stars on a cloudless night or as small like a notch in a tree.

"Visible Sign" - Rev. Sarah Walker Cleaveland

Posted on January 12, 2020 by Kathy Miller

For me, baptism remains one of the most compelling things we do together because it is a visual reminder that God chooses us, loves us, before we can do anything to deserve it. Saint Augustine defined a sacrament as a visible sign of an invisible grace, and I am particularly partial to infant baptisms because they make so visibly clear the invisible truth that God’s love does not depend on who we will grow up to be, whether or not we will have faith when we are older, how frequently we darken the door of the church, whom we love, or how we spend our time. When we baptize, we remind ourselves that God’s love came first and it claims us regardless of whether or not we choose to love God in return, regardless even of whether or not we have been baptized.

"Details" - Rev. Jennifer Gleichauf

Posted on January 5, 2020 by Kathy Miller

May the stories they write about us, if there are to be such stories, have a lot in common with these wise men.  May others see that we concentrated on the details which really matter.  May our lives point to God, not just ourselves.  May our stories tell of people willing to take risks, willing to travel where God leads us, and people who were able to recognize Jesus in unlikely places and worshipped him wherever we found him.  Amen.
