Our Vision: God calls us to be followers of Jesus Christ and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to grow as a community of grace, joy, and peace so that God’s healing and hope flow through us to the world.

Sermons

I wonder, what does the queer utopia of love for each other look like? What would it mean to free love for our communities from the limitations of “kinship” and “family” that, no matter how hard we try, imply we are caring for each other because we have to–not because we truly care for each other? How can we change the story of our horizons? Of what is possible, even if it takes fairytale magic to get there?
In evolutionary terms, maybe we could think of what happened through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus as a moral mutation.  Like rather than just replicating the same moral DNA generation after generation Jesus embodies a new possibility of humanity.  Rather than homo sapien, clever human, maybe its homo pacificus, peaceful human, or homo liberans, liberating human.  It’s the vision from Galilee dawning in a world littered with crosses.  A new creation.   
Remember this well: From the beginning, God takes all that is, and lovingly offers the next set of possibilities.  We, sometimes despite ourselves, sometimes with prayerful attention, take the next breath as we participate with God in creation.
