Let Justice Roll Worship Series

Let Justice Roll Worship Series

Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. – Amos 5: 21-24 Worship is a time to remind ourselves who we are called to be in this world. Amos the prophet proclaims that God calls us to let “justice roll down like waters.” Worship without justice is not acceptable, rather our songs must move us to action on behalf of the oppressed. In this series, we hear three prophets offer us reflection and renewed inspiration.  They call us to choose…to choose the way of our God, justice will roll down and the earth be filled with love, peace and welcome for people.  Let Justice Rolls – November 12, 19 and...

Angels Among Us #donotbeafraid​ The angels that appear in the story of Jesus’ birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags. Their messages were often short and to the point, their favorite line was #DoNotBeAfraid. As we look at the stories of these winged messengers to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and the Shepherds and their reactions to them, we will contemplate what messages we can offer that will counteract a culture of fear and bring #morehope, #morepeace, #morejoy, and #morelove to the world....
God’s House is a House of Love. Live in It. Build It.

God’s House is a House of Love. Live in It. Build It.

Last Sunday, at just about this time, a house of God in a little town in Texas was torn apart by a spray of gunfire. We have, regrettably become familiar with feeling unsafe in public spaces. But it can feel all the more grievous when the caustic combination of mental illness, domestic abuse and access to semi-automatic weapons explode in a church. The response among some churches has been to call for battening down the hatches, locking the doors of the church, or even meeting weapons with weapons. It is reasonable and right to take measures to keep a gathering safe. At Faith, we have many of precautions in place and consult with the local security, especially at times of greater risk. What we cannot forget in the midst of our fear, is that this church – each church – is ultimately God’s house. Our decisions about what we do here, the risks we take, the precautions we create are made because this is the house of our God, and our God has built a house of love. The prophet Amos reminds us – our God calls us to choose love. To choose love – even over perfect safety or retribution. Janet Reno, who served as United States Attorney General for eight years, grew up in a house built by love. At a high school graduation ceremony, Reno said that when she was a girl, her mother looked around at her growing family, and she looked around at their tiny home. She saw her husband working from dawn to night to earn enough money to support the family. She...
