A Message from Fr. Jim

Posted on July 28, 2020 in: General News

A Message from Fr. Jim
I’m hoping this addresses some of our critical social issues from a vantage point of Spirituality. Hate knows no racial, ethnic, religious, class or education barriers, it burrows into the human heart and takes hold.  Weapons manufacturers have long known this, find the hate, solve it with hate, and reap the profits. Too much hate going around, with no commitment to replace it with something that heals. I believe that the lawful nonviolent demonstrations in response to racism are needed, but are only step one, building is way harder with no easy immediate grat...

From the Pastor's Desk

Posted on July 15, 2020 in: General News

From the Pastor's Desk
It has taken me over a month to send something about the racial challenges that our nation and church face.  I had to overcome in me the inclination not to listen to our Black neighbors, who in anger and frustration, in desperation have called America to wake up.  I over focused on parts of the message with which I disagreed and so effectively I did not hear.  I’m asking you to read this and consider it, I am not asking you to accept it as Gospel Truth, or to see in it judgment or condemnation.  I am hoping it will give you something more as you li...
