“Words” July 12th 2020 Service

The same words can mean different things to different people, so it’s important to be careful with the words we use. When the apostle Paul speaks about flesh and spirit, it’s important for us to understand what he’s really talking about. To Paul, it’s a matter of life or death.

From Suffering to Hope – June 14 Service

Suffering produces endurance produces character produces hope, or says the apostle Paul. But not everyone who suffers is able to hope. What’s the missing ingredient in this formula that moves us to hope even when everything we thought we’ve done right isn’t working, individually and collectively?

Marching with clergy June 2, 2020

Marching with Twin Cities Clergy in Saint Paul on Tuesday, June 2. It was a silent march, because too many words have been shared and lost. Black pastors led; white pastors followed, because we have their backs. Friends and family followed. The march ended in the parking lot of the Target on University Avenue that was looted on the first night of rioting in St. Paul and is now closed and boarded up. There, prayers were offered for the city and all its citizens, that justice might come and a new peace might be born, a peace we have not known, a peace for all and not just for some.

Pastor Glen Herrington Hall

The Body of Christ Can’t Breathe

Right now, the Body of Christ can’t breathe; the perpetual grief of black Americans keeps them from fully breathing fully and deeply. Until they can breath freely, the Body of Christ can not live free either.  June 7, 2020 Service.

 

 

A Pandemic Pentecost – May 31, 2020 Service

A Pandemic Pentecost – May 31, 2020 Service

Acts 2:1-8, 12-24, & 32-36

What Christians recognize as Pentecost took place on a Jewish harvest festival, when the city of Jerusalem was filled with people form many paces seeking many different languages. It was not just an event, though, it was a vision of what was and is to come: a world transformed, lives changed, boundaries broken, God’s spirit setting people free. And more than a vision, it is our vocation.
