Saint(s) Valentine provide us with some inspriation this Sunday as we learn from their legends how to shine God's light boldly and in personal ways.
Every Sunday morning at 8:45am we have a short time of prayer, meditation, and communion. Tomorrow, our meditation will involve a visual and participatory art element. You can do this art meditation along with us by accessing the dotted heart page attached here. You can print it out or pull it up in a program where you can draw on the image, and more instructions will be given in the prayer time. Of course, you can always participate by watching along, it just may be a little more fun and meaningful to do the project with us!
[02/07/21] The livestream of the burning of the palms for ashes will be at 2:30, here and on zoom. (The risk of not having all my notes in worship means I probably said the wrong time there 🙃)
The gospel is compassion. Join us as we encounter that in word, song, holy communion, and prayer this Sunday morning.
We tackle these tough questions: How do we know that the stories in the Bible are true? and How do we forgive those who seem unforgivable? Plus some great music!
