Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Malachi Week 2





We nearly finished the last of our three minor prophets tonight, the
prophet Malachi. He lived when the Temple in Jerusalem was rebuilt.
During the rebuilding phase, all sorts of ideas developed about how
wonderful life would be once the Temple was back in operation and how
much humans would change as well. It didn't happen that way and Malachi
helps his people deal with that, change their expectations, and calls
them to work for the change they want. Looks like we'll have one more
week and then we'll take a summer vacation and return in the fall. Join
us. Or enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

A short message concerning what we can do together to assist our African

American brothers and sisters to push back against the sin of racism so

deeply baked into our society. It's a message of encouragement for

everyone and a call to action.

hope. It will be a wild ride. You are invited.

Spring Has a Story to Tell Us

John 1:1-5: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4in him was life, and the life was the light of all people.
5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

The world all around us, even in the midst of crisis, awakens and speaks to us these truths.
