Transform Shame into Laughter

Faith tends to do one of two things. It can close us down or open us up. When you read a Gospel like story of the Samaritan Woman, you have to wonder why we think it’s our job, as Christians, to shut people down. Ours is a faith with the capacity to bring light, and curiosity, and hope. Ours is a faith which can help us to laugh and to listen.

Loud about Love

How many of us are covert about our Christian faith because we don’t want to be associated with that label? John 3:16 is perhaps the most famous line in the Bible. How we read it, how we interpret it, tells us a great deal about the kind of Christianity we practice. Is your faith about exclusion, hate and power? Is your faith about love?

Do Justice. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.

We live in a part of the world where doing justice means doing church the way that Holy Communion does church. Too many churches and pastors are behind so much cruelty and hate in this state. It matters that you show up for worship and welcome people exactly for who they are.
