One of the very meaningful sites we visited in Israel is Caesarea Philippi. It is a place we will visit Sunday in my sermon in the sanctuary services. When Jesus and his disciples were there, tensions had been building and building. It was a dangerous, chaotic and troubled time. We, too, live in a tense, chaotic, and troubled time. In every age, including ours, his voice echoes that question, “Who do you say that I am?” I look forward to exploring Jesus’ important question with you on Sunday.(see more)

The great temptation is to cling in anger to our enemies and then define ourselves by being offended and wounded by them. Forgiveness, therefore, liberates not only the other but also ourselves. IT is the way to the freedom of the children of God.” – From Bread for the Journey by Henri J.M. Nouwen(see more)
