“Imitating God's Kindom on˙ Earth”
July 26, 2020 | 8th Sunday After Pentecost

       We all grew up having our likes and dislikes in life. Some of us like snow or rainy weather that makes us want to cuddle under a blanket reading a good book. Others prefer the sunny weather of Maui with that nice trade wind to keep the humidity level tolerable...

“The Welcome Wagon”
June 28, 2020 | 4th Sunday After Pentecost

“Acknowledging Our Fear and Letting Go”
June 21, 2020 | 3rd Sunday After Pentecost

       Let us pray: Most loving God of all people, a God beyond labels, a God of all humanity. I pray for the health of all who join us from our House Churches... and our virtual brothers and sisters from all over the world. I pray for their families, friends, and all their loved ones...

“The Gifts at Harvest Time”
June 14, 2020 | 2nd Sunday After Pentecost

       At a time such as this—we are witnessing an unsee-able virus, and most recently the killing of George Floyd, another human being. I have to say, that in my lifetime—I can somewhat relate to the racial profiling that many of our brothers and sisters in the black community...

“The Future Awaits”
April 26, 2020 | 125th Anniversary Sermon
