Rev. Mary Frances Comer

“Blessings All Around Us”
Rev. Amy Brooks
To give or receive a blessing takes courage, or perhaps vulnerability. Are we open to blessing or are we too busy or defended to notice the blessings all around us?

“Learning to Walk in the Dark”
Sam Treadaway
As the summer solstice nears, our days will soon begin lessening and the nights will grow longer. Darkness can be the absence of light in our physical world, but sometimes the light can go out in our emotional and spiritual world as well. Even when that light wanes or goes out altogether, there are treasures in the dark that we cannot always see by day. What we need is a spirituality that works in the night.

“Our Fathers”
Rev. Amy Brooks
From the image of the Father God to our biological fathers we are shaped many ways. What do we carry with us that we love and celebrate; what would we like to let go? Join for a time of reflection on the power of fathers in our lives.
