Last Sunday when we were talking about the Balance of Loving God, Neighbor, and Self during the sermon response time, someone mentioned that we were really talking about Hospitality. That has been squarely stuck in my head all week. So this Sunday we are going to segue into the Spiritual Practice of Hospitality.. Hospitality can only be offered in the present moment. So with the help of Proverbs 9, Matthew 10, and Psalm 23, that is where we will start our inquiry. I also think it's important to remember that our new trajectory at UCH is also all about Hospitality. We are called to be present and active in a series of important present moments- like in our important Congregational Meeting after church today so we can move into our calling. Join us for a morning of rich conversation about the joys and challenges of love, presence, and hospitality. .

See you there! Rev .Jeanne

This Sunday we are exploring our joyous and complicated calling to love God, our neighbors, and ourselves. They key to this lifelong spiritual practice (what Jesus called "The greatest commandment" is Balance. We have to get in the flow so we can love and receive love in three directions at once. That is a tall and life-giving order. Join us as we explore our calling and balancing act of giving and receiving love. I love you and look forward to seeing you there! -Rev. Jeanne.

This Sunday we will explore what it means to live Authentically. Jesus walked and talked Authenticity. He didn't call it that. But his Body, Mind, Spirit, Words, Actions, (and whole being) were in alignment with God and his mission in the world- which is what made him so powerful, so healing, and so compassionate. If we can find ways to get as congruent as possible-and to re-ignite the journey to Authenticity within us- we can also be community, and life changers. Join us as we explore our calling to walk this facet of the Jesus Way in the world! -Rev. Jeanne

 This Sunday we will be talking about the Spiritual Journey of Losing and Finding. One of my favorite spiritual teachers, Henri Nouwen suggests that in order to find ourselves, we have to lose ourselves over and over again. True dat. And enter the well-known story of the "Prodigal Son." Prodigal by definition means "wastefully extravagant" and most interpreters of this text see the Son as the wasteful one who squanders and loses his inheritance. Fortunately, he finds his way home in the midst of that loss. And his brother, who is resentful about the whole state of affairs THINKS he is found, but is actually lost (like a lot of us). I'm also going to throw another wrench into the works: What if God is the Prodigal? We worship a God of extravagant wasteful grace, who loves us through everything and no matter what. There is a lot more to this story than meets the eye. 

Join us as we listen to it with new ears, and explore being lost, found, and worshiping a Prodigal God.  -Rev. Jeanne
