    "“How about infant baptism? Shouldn't you wait until the child grows up enough to know what's going on?...

    When it comes to the forgiving and transforming love of God, one wonders if the six-week-old screecher knows all that much less than the archbishop of Canterbury about what's going on.”

    –Frederick Buechner

    "You do not have to be good.

    You do no have to walk on your knees

    for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body

    love what it loves.

    Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you about mine.

    Meanwhile the world goes on.

    Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

    are moving across the landscapes,

    over the prayer and the deep trees,

    the mountains and the rivers.

    Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

    are heading home again.

    Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

    the world offers itself to your imagination, 

    calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting - 

    over and over announcing your place

    in the family of things."

    - Mary Oliver, Wild Geese



    This week we welcome Jeremy Langill, our new Director of Faith Formation and Outreach, to the pulpit for the first time.



    Proverbs 9:1-6

    John 6:51-58
