Here's Handel's Messiah done in a light hearted, "quarantine" way!

Thanks, Rev. Tom for today's e-mail message, "Salt"! Encouraging as usual! Things will change through this isolation period. I'm sure that's true. I think we'll end up even more connected with more ways of staying connected. But won't it be great when we reunite for the first time again in person! Looking forward to that!
Rachel Held Evans' funeral today. Sweet and sad. She will be missed!
If anybody from the Animate Faith 11AM adult class is looking here, I'm posting another video of today's subject starter, Nadia Bolz-Weber. As I have mentioned, she's been helpful to me in becoming more inclusive and "real" in my faith. This is a good, pretty short one that gives a good representation of her overall ministry and speaking style. It would be fun to take a road trip to Denver sometime and visit her church! Even better, organize enough presbyterians and other variety "mainline Christians" (she's ELCA Lutheran so a lot of them would love it) to invite her to ABQ! Enjoy!
ABQ YAVs have been welcomed to New Mexico by SO many incredible people, so now it's our turn! Please drop in and join us for hot cocoa, cookies, and carols, so that we can thank you for making our first few months here so special. We hope you can join us & feel free to dress festively!

From those of you that we've gotten to know well to those of you who we haven't gotten to meet yet, all are welcome!
Calling all Youth! We want to invite everyone from 6th-12th grade, their families and their friends to join us for a end of summer Pool Party! Come and join us! If you have never been to a youth event this could be a great chance to come and meet the Interns and other Youth.

A congregation of passionate, servant discipes for Jesus Christ

Every good gift, every perfect gift, comes from above. These gifts come down from God, the creator of the heavenly lights, in whose character there is no change at all. God chose to give us birth by the true word, and here is the result: we are like the first crop from the harvest of everything God created.
Know this, my dear ones: everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to grow angry. This is because an angry person doesn’t produce God’s righteousness. Therefore, with humility, set aside all moral filth and the growth of wickedness, and welcome the word planted deep inside you—the very word that is able to save you.
If those who claim devotion to God don’t control what they say, they mislead themselves. Their devotion is worthless. True devotion, the kind that is pure and faultless before God, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their difficulties and to keep the world from contaminating us.

Scripture for Sunday, August 15 Ephesians 5:15-20

So be careful to live your life wisely, not foolishly. Take advantage of every opportunity because these are evil times. Because of this, don’t be ignorant, but understand the Lord’s will. Don’t get drunk on wine, which produces depravity. Instead, be filled with the Spirit in the following ways: speak to each other with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; sing and make music to the Lord in your hearts; always give thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

SCRIPTURE READING: Sunday 8/1/21 John 6:24-35
When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”
Jesus replied, “I assure you that you are looking for me not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate all the food you wanted. Don’t work for the food that doesn’t last but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Human One will give you. God the Father has confirmed him as his agent to give life.”
They asked, “What must we do in order to accomplish what God requires?”
Jesus replied, “This is what God requires, that you believe in him whom God sent.”
They asked, “What miraculous sign will you do, that we can see and believe you? What will you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, just as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.”
Jesus told them, “I assure you, it wasn’t Moses who gave the bread from heaven to you, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. The bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
They said, “Sir, give us this bread all the time!”
Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

SCRIPTURE for Sunday 7/25/21 John 6:1-13
After this Jesus went across the Galilee Sea (that is, the Tiberias Sea). A large crowd followed him, because they had seen the miraculous signs he had done among the sick. Jesus went up a mountain and sat there with his disciples. It was nearly time for Passover, the Jewish festival.
Jesus looked up and saw the large crowd coming toward him. He asked Philip, “Where will we buy food to feed these people?” Jesus said this to test him, for he already knew what he was going to do.
Philip replied, “More than a half year’s salary worth of food wouldn’t be enough for each person to have even a little bit.”
One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said, “A youth here has five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that for a crowd like this?”
Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass there. They sat down, about five thousand of them. Then Jesus took the bread. When he had given thanks, he distributed it to those who were sitting there. He did the same with the fish, each getting as much as they wanted.
When they had plenty to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather up the leftover pieces, so that nothing will be wasted.” So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves that had been left over by those who had eaten.

Scripture for Sunday 7/18/21 Mark 6:30-34, 53-56
The apostles returned to Jesus and told him everything they had done and taught. Many people were coming and going, so there was no time to eat. He said to the apostles, “Come by yourselves to a secluded place and rest for a while.” They departed in a boat by themselves for a deserted place.
Many people saw them leaving and recognized them, so they ran ahead from all the cities and arrived before them. When Jesus arrived and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. Then he began to teach them many things.
When Jesus and his disciples had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret, anchored the boat, and came ashore. People immediately recognized Jesus and ran around that whole region bringing sick people on their mats to wherever they heard he was. Wherever he went - villages, cities, or farming communities - they would place the sick in the marketplaces and beg him to allow them to touch even the hem of his clothing. Everyone who touched him was healed.
