Power to the peacful

 War. Again.  I pray for the safety of our kids at school.  I cannot believe we have to post signs banning guns from our public space.  I worry where racial inequality will erupt into violence again.  I wonder if you contemplate ideas likes these, too.  Somedays, I do not know how to live in the presence of seemingly endless violence. 
And Sundays, I do what I know in my heart to be the truest response to a weary, violent world: I extend my hand in peace to the people around me.  We share again and again in worship a gentle protest to the realities of injustice and greed.  We pass the peace because we so honestly want to live in peace--with each other, with our neighbors near and far and with the planet.

Thanks for checking out our website.  Come join us for worship, or come to one of our new fall classes. Northeast Minneapolis is a great place to live and worship.  Help us build the reality we wish to see.

 Power to the Peaceful,  Pastor Sarah
"I refuse to accept the view that [humankind] is tragically bound to the starless night  of racism and war and that the bright daybreak of peace and [community] can never become a reality. . . I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."
~Martin Luther King Jr.

Poet Marsh Muirhead to Appear December 11

Bemidji poet and dentist Marsh Muirhead will present some of his poetry at Northeast UMC on December 11. “The World -- Real and Imagined -- in Poetry and Prose” is  an evening with writer Marsh Muirhead. Artist A.K. Dayton is the featured artist. The art opening is at 6:00 p.m. Muirhead's reading  begins at 7:30.
Muirhead won The Great American Think-Off in 2011 answering the question, “Does Poetry Matter?” He says it does.  His poetry and fiction have been published in Rattle, Carolina Quarterly, Minnetonka Review, New Mexico Poetry Review, The Southeast Review, and elsewhere. He has published more than 100 haiku in all the major haiku journals, and won a Museum of Haiku Literature Award from the Museum of Haiku Literature in Tokyo in 2012. His collection of haiku, her cold martini, was published in 2013. His essays and feature writing have appeared in numerous magazines and on public radio stations KBXE and KCRB in northern Minnesota.
Marsh is a dentist, pilot and award-winning flight instructor, former bodybuilder (Mr. Minnesota 1983--although evidence of this is diminishing), and writer, living on the banks of the Mississippi River near Bemidji where he writes about all those things and more. Go here to hear a sample of his poetry.
