  • "Words are easy, like the wind; Faithful friends are hard to find." It sounds like a country song, but it's Shakespeare. True faithfulness - whether to friends or to loved ones or to God - is not easy or to be taken lightly. In the story of our faith, Ruth is one whose faithfulness made her a role model, especially given her identity as a marginalized outsider to the Hebrew faith and culture. What might she - and her spiritual children - teach us about faithfulness?

  • The Ten Commandments can be broken down into three sections – laws about our relationship with God, a law about our relationship with oneself, and laws concerning our relationship with the community. God gives the commandments not to restrict freedom but as a framework to promote free and life-giving relationships with God, with others, and within ourselves. This message of God’s love for us and for all humanity is absolutely extraordinary and bears repeating day in and day out. So, I wonder, can you imagine a world where we actively lived into these commandments?

  • A mysterious guest tells Sarah she will have a child in her old age; Jesus hints to his disciples that a rich person just might be able to enter the kingdom of heaven. Both imply that nothing is impossible for God. What kinds of "impossible possibilities" does faith help us experience today?

  • Every year we celebrate World Communion Sunday, remembering we are not Christians on our own, that we are connected with folks around the world. But why? And given the state of the world -refugees unable to find a home; or our nation - yet another college reeling after a shooting - why do we care, beyond just being nice people? How might we discover our own call - our own burning bush, as we read the story of Moses - where we realize these are all holy matters, because that's just who God is?
