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.
