Valentine “Sharing Love” Narthex Tree

This February service project is all about connecting hearts with our Homebound. Everyone is invited to share some love by creating homemade Valentine’s Day cards, treat bags, heart ornaments….whatever touches your heart with someone else’s heart! There will be a donation box under the tree to place your items. There are blank paper heart ornaments in the Narthex you can use to add your Valentine message and hang on the tree. Take a copy of the homebound list for greeting cards. You can save postage by placing addressed greeting cards in the donation box. We are hoping to fill 15 Valentine boxes for  distribution by the end of February, so there’s plenty of time to be creative! Direct any questions to Enid Rank.

“Embracing an Alternative Orthodoxy” Father Richard Rohr on the Legacy of St. Francis

Join Pastor Phil in the church library every Sunday, 9:45 am to 10:45 am. Extend your hour of worship with an hour of Adult Christian Education.

“Embracing an Alternative Orthodoxy” Father Richard Rohr on the Legacy of St. Francis.

Topics:

Atonement Theology — Why did Jesus die?
Eco-spirituality — What does it mean for humanity to “Subdue” the earth?
The Cosmic Christ — God in all things
Orthodoxy vs. Orthopraxy — The difference between correct belief and correct practice of faith
Mysticism — Having a faith in which you sense a oneness with God, others, and creation

“The people who know God well, the mystics, hermits, prayerful people, those who risk everything to find God, always meet a lover not a dictator.” ~ Richard Rohr

These topics will be addressed thru a DVD presentation and work books for each participant. Join Pastor Phil as we delve deeply into these relevant topics of faith, life and the future of Christianity.

Contemplative Prayer and Meditation

First Wednesday of the Month, 7-7:45pm held in a circle at the altar. A service of contemplation, introspection, and listening. Looking for a break from our fast-paced world? Quiet time to reflect on a reading from scripture and listen to what others hear from those readings. This service is designed as a service of silence, light, contemplation, and reflection. It’s not your typical Lutheran Worship service.
