    Longest Night Service

    Waveland Hall

    Come and join us for candle-lighting, healing prayers, scripture and music that acknowledge God’s presence for all of us who mourn, all of us who struggle and all of us who experience darkness from living a real life. While the holiday season is usually one of feasting and gift giving, for young and old alike, jumping into celebration is challenging because we are carrying burdens, sometimes seen, often unseen. Please join us on Monday, Dec. 17 at 6 p.m. in Waveland Hall as we gather to observe the longest night of the year that is to come. Everyone, regardless of church affiliation (or lack of it) is welcome.

The Preaching of Paul and a Punk Rock Song: Acts 13 and 14

  This week’s Scripture reading reminds me of a punk rock song. No, seriously. Belfast’s own Stiff Little Fingers has a song called “Nobody’s Hero.” It’s a (loud, angry) reminder that human beings have a habit of trusting too much in mere mortals. But the thing is: you don’t need a punk rock song to... Read More
