    Short Days of Longing

    These are days of longing. For this, we find ourselves in good company, if though from a social distance.

    Now What

    Now What

    If God is sustainer, and God is free, could it be that God would withdraw the sustaining spirit? And if that happens, then now what?

    A Remnant of Reality

    A Remnant of Reality

    When all falls away,
    this remnant of what’s real: Church.
    Seek, hold its frayed hem.

    Not in a Laughing Mood

    It isn't often that the Bible strikes a wrong tone because it's just too silly to go with our lived difficulties. But mood-matching has never been easy among otherwise devoted partners.

Good(wo)man is a Gift

If you need such a thing from me, then hear my voice say it: “It’s good” ;->
Rev. Liz is a gifted orator who consistently elevates with her musings. One never feels “preached to” while listening. Instead, Liz delivers a sermon like she is both traversing a new path and traveling a familiar one. It’s like we skip along beside her through her thoughtful digressions, and end up exactly where we need to be...looking for ways to live better and love better.

Thankful

I am an unordained, untrained lay pastor at a tiny church not far from the Monterey church and am thankful I have found these podcasts. I consider listening to these podcasts part of my eternally ongoing training I need to pastor my little church. Full disclosure: I know Liz and am thankful for the support she has given me over the years.

Church from afar

I listen to the Monterey UCC podcasts from NC and greatly appreciate being able to stay connected to my "home church" in this way. Rev. Liz Goodman is a wise, charismatic, and thought-provoking pastor presiding over a very special place of worship.
