Reclaiming Jesus – Epilogue

Last Sunday, we finished our series — “Reclaiming Jesus: How Confessing Faith Can Respond to a Moral and Constitutional Crisis.” This is a document that was written by a group of Christian leaders from all over the country and from a variety of churches. I was asked to write a summary of this document and have it available to you. You can also click onto a short video with some of the writers of the document speaking.

Mothers Day 2018

This Sunday we celebrate Mothers Day. My mother died in 2010. I miss her. We had a good relationship. She passed on a great deal to me — my questioning and exploring faith, my love for the Church, my social conscience, my commitment to service, and my love of books. 
 
During a difficult time, she stood by me. Her love was unconditional. Do we think about what we pass on to others? Do we think about what love and acceptance means to others? In our ministry here we are planting seeds of acceptance and love. To some we are like a parent figure.– encouraging, loving, accepting, and occasionally being stern and tough. 
 
On so many levels, my mother is the reason I am here. I will be thinking about this on Mothers Day. I have been blessed! I will live to be a blessing to others.
