What if Christ is a name for the transcendent within of every “thing” in the universe?
What if Christ is a name for the immense spaciousness of all true Love?
What if Christ refers to an infinite horizon that pulls us both from within and pulls us forward, too?
What if Christ is another name for every thing ... in its fullness?
Fr. Richard Rohr

Starting in September, we’ll begin a sermon series in Fr. Rohr’s latest book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe. You might want to purchase it and read it in advance. I hope many of you will join together with me on Tuesday mornings to talk about the book and what I should preach.

Until then, we continue to walk through some of the parables that Jesus used as teaching tools. I hope you’ve been drawn closer to the Divine and are coming to love even more what God loves. The goal, of course, is to realize and enlarge the circle where the ways of Christ are lived out for the peace and joy of all. Please join our Tuesday morning discussion and sharing group around these parables.


Oh, and make sure you have VBS on your calendar. You can read more about it herein. Come help Linda and her growing team paddle together. Come and simply participate as one of the kids or help at one of the stations.

And thank you for keeping Linda (and me) in your prayers. As of this moment, she is about to receive the fourth of five radiation treatments. I was really moved yesterday as I thought about how light (photons) are bringing her healing! Contemplate that for a bit!!

Finally, I want to also thank you for your patience as regards the daycare opportunity. We’re trying to do the impossible as we do the work on the Annex in parallel with answering questions and share information. I think Brigette did a great job helping us to understand more about her business. And, we learned that it’s so much more than a business ... it’s her passion and a valuable community service. I see a great relationship in the making. Remember that we vote on August 11 right after morning worship.

Peace & Joy , Pastor Bob
