This past Sunday, we had a flash mob in worship as we heard about the summertime adventures of our youth Pilgrimage to Steubenville, Ohio, and reflected on how they experienced “Jesus: the revolution of love.”  This Sunday, music and poetry will be at the heart of our worship, as we consider our theme of "Salvation: Abundant Life Now.”

This Sunday during worship we will hear music by Benjamin Britten and text from the unusual psalm-lke poem,"Jubilate Agno," by Christopher Smart. The poetic images are at times startling, confusing, and even amusing. Britten treats them with just the right amount of humor and seriousness that allows the deeply spiritual truths found in Smart's work to shine forth.

We hear the names each week in church: Galilee, Bethlehem, Jerusalem. We also hear about intense fighting all over the Middle East and wonder, is there any hope for peace? In fact there is, in the form of an organization that brings together Israelis and Palestinians who tour the U.S. each year to discuss ways out of the current situation.
