Liturgy Reflection & Benediction 04.30.2017

Liturgy Ever-present God, you meet us in the borderlands, in places neither here nor there, at times when we are well out of our comfort zone; even if we don’t know where we’re going, when we feel most lost, you are there: thank you, God. We thank you for all we can learn from our sisters and brothers who live […]

Liturgy Reflection & Benediction 04.23.2017

Liturgy We believe in God who speaks through the prophets and lifts our gaze up to high and beautiful paths and peaks.

Liturgy Between the setting of the sun and the coming of the dawn, your love sustains us, Everlasting God. Your story give us hope for the morning. Remind us when the shadows grow long and dark, that greater is the Holy Spirit who is in us, than he who is in the world. Remind us when sadness and pain come, […]

Liturgy Reflection & Benediction 03.19.2017

Liturgy Holy and Beloved God, it is hard to hope when all seems lost. The darkness has a way of fuzzing our vision, of taking our eyes off of your holy light. It’s hardest to see your light when our eyes are shut – shut to you, shut to each other, and shut to the suffering that is just barely […]
