Jesus Christ calls us to be a joyful community that celebrates God's love, transforms lives, and is a force for justice in the world.

Our Inheritance

All Saints Day is really about our small place within the wider web of creation, remembering with gratitude and humility the many who came before us and played a crucial part in shaping our lives.

Jesus is the Question: How much bread do you have?

It is nothing short of miraculous when we are able to move past an attitude of scarcity to an attitude of abundance. When that happens we realize that there are always more resources in a given situation than we realize. When we offer what we have, however small, in God’s providence, there is always enough.

Jesus is the Question: Have you still no faith?

One thing we learn from people of deep faith is that to trust God takes a lifetime of practice. It takes going through storms, many storms. It takes having the “waves” of hardship, challenges, struggle, and pain surge around us and crash down on us… while somehow having peace in the midst of it all.
