Lent 3 - Prayer Chair

Settle into a chair, breathe deeply, and make the following prayer your offering to God. For losing touch with the big picture and what’s important… forgive me. For the times when I’ve lived to work rather than work to live… forgive me. Help us be truly present to you, O God. Help me be mindful that my connection to you exists right here in the present, and putting off time to tune in to you right now robs me of the deep peace and assurance you have to give. In this moment......

Lent 2 Prayer Chair

Settle into a chair, breathe deeply, and make the following prayer your offering to God. For the times when I have put the to-do list before reaching others… forgive me. For the times when I isolated myself to “just push through it”… forgive me. Help me find the place of balance, O God. Help me be mindful of my need and others need-to be in relationship. Help me stop and find that relationship with you as you invite me to beautiful and serene moments of life like this one. In this moment......

Lent 1 - Prayer Chair

Settle into a chair, breathe deeply, and make the following prayer your offering to God. For the times when I have run myself and others ragged… forgive me. For the times when I have asked of myself too much or too little… forgive me. Help me find the right tempos for the right times, O God. Help me be gentle in my learning and growing–with myself and with others. Help me step back when the toxic and overbearing pace of life that I believe I must adhere to in order to live......

A Lent of Serving

“I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes, I was sick and you stopped to visit, I was in prison and you came to me.” On Sunday, Pastor Jason challenged us to see this Lenten season as an opportunity.  During this season of self-reflection and repentance we are asking you to consider Jesus’ words in Matthew 25.  We encounter people everyday that are hungry, thirsty, homeless, and......

Levavi Oculos

I sat in chapel with stone floors and a high wooden ceiling surrounded by hundreds of other students.  It was opening convocation on my first “official” day of college.  I was nervous, naive, and brave enough to take on the world, all at the same time.  And as I sat on the long wooden pew, we were directed to repeat after the college president:  “Vi”  “Vi”, “Vavi” “Vavi”, “Levavi”  “Levavi”, “los” “los”, “culos”  “culos” , “oculos”  “oculos”, “Levavi oculos” “Levavi oculos”.  After our Latin pronunciation lesson, the president carefully explained how we would learn......
