    Joy Triggers, and other Conduits of Pandemic Reflection by Amanda Lindamood In between sheets of sad triggers make sense. Doors into feelings below feelings before feelings between memories and wishes for futures real enough and pretend enough. Grounded was a word I defined today, and it’s in that spirit that...

    Pastor Karen Isaiah 50:4-9a; Hebrews 12:1-3; John 13:21-32; Psalm 70(1)  How was it to Live with Lent in 2020? How was it journeying with God at Night? At this end of Lent, I offer you some questions prompted by the Scripture from Matthew 9: 27- 34:  Review your days —...

    Justin Fitch Isaiah 49:1-7; 1 Corinthians 1:18-31; John 12:20-36; Psalm 71:1-14(6)  When we think of God, or talk about God (theology), our tendency can be to make things more complicated than they need to be (sometimes just to seem more intelligent). It can lead us to wonder, “Where is the one who...

    Bekka Meyer 1 Samuel 16:11-13; Philippians 1:1-11; Psalm 31:9-16  Today’s Psalm reading is a roller coaster, a reminder of what is ahead in Holy Week. Verses 9-13 are painful to read – scheming, terror, pain, grief, and more. The afflictions described are both physical and emotional, along with the agony of rejection by...

    Jeremiah 32:1-9, 36-41; Matthew 22:23-33; Psalm 143  Great Creator we confess to you that we are bound up in worldly structures that keep us away from you. We get caught up in the rules of the day, more interested in being right than having faith in your teachings. Forgive us,...
