“Emerging in God’s Love,” November 13, 2021

News & Updates

  • Giving and Thanks

    It was three days before Thanksgiving and St. James' was bustling. In the office was Karen, on volunteer secretarial duty, catching every free dinner order. In walks John, having finished a survey of all the people working on Thanksgiving, so dinner could be delivered to them in the pharmacies, the ambulance corps, the urgent care, the grocery store and the like. All 84 people would receive dinners. Then he went into the sanctuary to remove altar paraments, hymnals, kneelers, altar chairs, flower stand and the prayer votive stand. All of this done to assist (and maybe shorten the time) the repair personnel who start the ceiling repair on November 29th.

  • Only more so

    Years ago, a friend shared with me, “If you want to beat the system, play by its rules, only more so.” That's obviously not what we’re talking about here; we’re not competing with each other who’s got more toys, or who is greener. We’re talking about redirecting a system which would love to keep us hooked on fossil fuel-derived energy by playing by its rules, only more so. Does our challenge sound like moving a mountain? Yes, if we assume that we have to find ways to change the system only through legislation or governmental rule making. Those have their place in leading us away from fossil fuel based energy, and we must not ignore their power. Here, though, we’re talking about the power of choice in the marketplace, and exercising that power to the benefit of God’s creation.
