  • Mt 25: 14-31. When Trijicon or any company puts Jesus' sayings on their weapons components intended for human destruction, it is an attempted character assassination of our Lord. When any individual or entity misappropriates the sayings of Jesus to eventuate a murder, it is perpetuating the too-often held perception that evil is right and goodness will not prevail.

  • JOHN 17:1–11. Each of us will probably have those moments when time freezes. But then, life moves on and you choose how to live into the newness. Maybe sometimes you get to a part of the story that isn’t exactly where you thought you would be. Or maybe you are at a place that just exactly what you wanted. Either way, God is there. God is there when you are “stuck in a moment and can’t get out of it” and God is there when you live into and lean into what comes next. And that is good news.

  • John 14: 15-21. Take comfort, friends. We have not been orphaned. The Spirit of truth in and amongst us and we are well cared for. We are free from the bonds of self-preservation - the Advocate is with us. Therefore, it’s not just about us. Let’s think about someone else. Let’s think about how we, as a community of faith, can reflect our confidence in the love of God for the world. Let’s think about how we might serve God’s people well – and then, let’s try it.
