Weekly Update

Weekly Update

I've been hearing lots of people complaining about how tired they are of winter by now. I find, with the special lens I have on life--that of someone who is feeling like really lucky to even be here--I'm having a great time with the winter. After several years of battling winter, after coming up north here from Tulsa. This year I decided on a different plan. I decided to join winter. I'm planning on wearing lots of clothes, woolen clothes, and hats . . . and even snow pants and tall boots for snow hikes. And out I go into the day, with a lot of joy to be out in the day. The sunny days have been particularly beautiful. I'm sending this out a bit late today, because I took a nice walk in the sunshine this afternoon. I'm attaching a couple of pictures. Hope you can enjoy the beauty of this gorgeous winter day--at least from my pictures. 

See you in church!

Rev. Eva Cameron & Deblyn Russell as Worship Associate.  
As part of our year-long focus of Standing on the Side of Love, 
we will explore how to talk about same-sex marriage including Biblical Self-Defense! Please BRING YOUR BIBLE to church with you, along with a pen to be able to underline sections. The New Revised Standard (NRS) is a good translation. I want to learn how to talk intellegently to people who's frame of reference and source for truth is the Bible. There are things to think about, translations to understand, and situations to consider in the verses that people often use to beat others up about same-sex marriage. Come learn to speak about the Good News, a loving faith, right from the Bible.
