The Better Part

How are we going to save the planet? It seems like I read an article on this every week with new advice — almost like a new dietary fad: “follow this one wacky tip to melt your belly weight and stop climate change.” The answers feel more hollow all the time, as clickbait is wont to feel.

In the Shelter of Each Other

  • The Rev. Scott Walters

I say the parable of the Samaritan’s kindness is a migrant story. It’s another story set very intentionally along a road, and one that very intentionally includes a foreigner.

The Gift of Servanthood

  • The Rev. Paul McLain

The Second Sunday after Pentecost

  • The Rev. Scott Walters
  • 06/23/2019
  • 12:00
