“God is in the advent wilderness of this holy season. God knows what I look like in my bathrobe, all alone late at night. And never once has God suggested that the sight is pathetic. Instead, in those empty hours God says, ‘Talk to me. Then be still and know that I am God.’” ~…

MCCDC: Plans, Blueprints and Permits

MCCDC: Rev. Elder Troy Perry: The Faith of our Founder

Faith is simply recognizing our tiny place in relation to God’s enormous, creative love, and then filling that place with our whole lives.” ~Debie Thomas In our Gospel for Sunday, Jesus says to the disciples: “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could…
