Join us for worship, Sundays at 9:30 a.m

News of wars, natural disaster, and human suffering greets us every evening, without fail. Where is God in this? Does God not see? Jesus warns his disciples of the temple’s destruction, and worse, yet to come. Indeed, God in Christ does see what human beings are doing to one another. It is we who cannot stand to look, listen, or respond to the fires, the famines, the faces of suffering around us. And yet, and yet. Jesus comes among us to announce God is near at hand, God’s gracious will is carrying forth, God’s reign unfolds in our very midst. God is with us in the midst of earthquake, flood, homelessness and hopelessness. As the fig tree comes into blossom, so the ministry of fellow believers serves as sign of new life to us. The coming of God’s reign isn’t going to look like yesterday. We wait with prayer and expectation. Christ is coming soon.
