The Sunday after Pentecost is traditionally called "Trinity Sunday." The Trinity is a troublesome and yet still powerful way to think about our Still-Speaking God. It's troublesome because of its traditionally masculine construction, and because it's pointing to something mysterious that is impossible to "get around." And it's powerful because three is a number that comes up repeatedly in scripture when God is doing awesome things. (And it points to how God manifests in our lives in infinitely diverse ways). This Sunday, we will be exploring the story of Nicodemus, a Pharisee, who seeks out Jesus (in the dark of night), to have a most remarkable conversation about who Jesus is, what he is doing in the world, and how he is calling us to be people of the resurrection. Join us for this time of worship, music, prayer, and reflection on what it means to serve a diverse God who calls us to be "Born Again." -Rev. Jeanne
The UCH Healing Circle is a group people who gather together in our sanctuary one evening a month January through November to direct God’s healing energy (Love) to those whose names are entered into the Circle. A breath centered meditation is used to calm, relax, and center ourselves in preparation for this directed healing practice. The Healing Circle is open to anyone; the only requirement is being open to the possibilities that God has available to us.
Scripture Seekers Bible Study, Ross Blue Room, 5:30 P.M, Thursday evenings. Scripture Seekers has started part 3 of "Living the Questions" series called "Transformation." That means it's a perfect time to join us! Living the Questions brings together over thirty diverse preachers, scholars, and theologians in video explorations of what it means to be "progressive Christians" and to embrace more "broad minded" faith. We also tie these themes into particular passages of scripture and take time to pray for each other and those who are need in the beloved community.
(May 31) Prayer: Embracing the Divine, Matthew 6
Join us for a time of prayer and rich conversation about scripture, progressive theology, and current events. I look forward to seeing you there! -Rev. Jeanne
