FROM  BETH'S  DESK


Born – like us. Raised – like us. Baptized – like us. Moved away from home – like us. Made friends – like us.

The Jesus we worship and follow is so very unlike us that we can forget how very like us he actually was and is. He was born, he lived, he died.

Of course the story doesn’t end there. But the connections we make with The Risen One rise from how very much we have in common. And that commonality – call it shared humanity – is what reminds us and challenges us and tugs at us each and every day to rise to our calling – for truly, friends, if he could, we can.

And the fact is, he did. So what are we waiting for?

Peace out,

Pastor Beth
