The body does not consist of one member but of many. - 1 Corinthians 12:14 (NRSV)

I look forward to worshiping in community with my local congregation. I particularly love the special seasons of the church year, and I most want to be in church during Advent. The songs, the sermons, the decorations, and the music herald the coming of our Lord.

Last Advent, health problems...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, thank you for the community we find in you. Help us to feel connected to all our siblings in Christ, especially when we feel alone. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
