Like, Paul and Lydia and Ananias and Tabitha and the women at the river outside the city gates, and the widows in Joppa, we welcome each other in to the life of Resurrection.

With our thoughts on Ukraine, this morning’s psalm takes seriously the suffering of the world and gives it voice. And, at the same time, the psalm holds that lament with hope – hope in a God who is our shelter and our strength.By Rev. Scott Clark
 
At the Threshold of Forgiveness – by God’s grace, we stand in the life we have lived until now – then we step through... into the life we find in Jesus Christ – we step into the new creation – into a world filled with love, possibility, and hope.By Rev. Scott Clark
 
In every threshold, God is with us liberating and empowering us into the next new thing. Thresholds open up the opportunity for us to pause and to ask – Where have I been and what have I learned there? What is being made manifest here and now? And, how shall I now live?By Rev. Scott Clark

The beginning of wisdom is knowing that we know not, and listening with our whole heart – our whole selves – for the steadfast, loving presence of God, walking with us always into life.…
 
In the rhythm of all our coming and going, in our gathering and going out and gathering again, Jesus says: “I am the bread of life – I will always welcome you in. Trust into me.” Moving forward together, we act in vulnerability and courage in the midst of the unknown; we experience authenticity; and we build trust.…
 
The welcome we return to God must be as loving and liberating as the welcome we have received – a welcome that names and dismantles every system that holds anyone anywhere down, a welcome that leaves no one behind, a welcome that sets the whole world free.By Rev. Scott Clark
