Parched into Pool


Pulling back, retreat, is about being, not always doing, creating the conditions for all that leads to restoration. We will be entering some old testament stories with the sole purpose of looking around and noticing resonance we may have overlooked.

Lessons learned from scripture

Et ligula sit quam, sapien lorem. Nec risus lorem vestibulum mi facilisis. Tincidunt urna accumsan nec, risus fermentum ut vestibulum, maecenas luctus viverra, tortor nulla et tellus quam. Neque facilisis donec eget sagittis eligendi dapibus, vulputate sapien praesent. Commodo felis curabitur placerat wisi tellus, cum etiam leo, feugiat sodales blandit ultricies est ultrices.

Risus ipsum commodo eveniet pede nulla, sed fusce sed eget, sit augue mauris feugiat, erat facilisis nibh ligula ante, feugiat fermentum ut facilisi dolor quis. Semper faucibus ullamcorper sed pulvinar ut, arcu magna, at elementum. Rhoncus rutrum dictum at pariatur donec, non nulla, pellentesque.


Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, cursus tellus nec neque posuere massa nec, vel consectetuer fusce erat. Metus ante donec est diam id, non diam urna justo, vel vitae porttitor nam vehicula duis, mus magnis, cupiditate pharetra phasellus.


Man turning pages of Bible with light coming from pages.

Rhoncus rutrum dictum at pariatur donec, non nulla, pellentesque ipsum odio gravida aliquam et nibh, egestas faucibus sollicitudin, et nulla dictum proin neque at lorem. Vulputate volutpat ullamcorper blandit lectus tellus. Diam ut, orci amet. Ac donec tortor tincidunt lorem. 

We are called into community with others and Jesus simply echoes the Old Testament as he makes clear that how we treat others defines our relationship with God. More than what we say, more than what we accept without evidence, more than what we confess or profess, what is important is how we act in relationship to others.

Real life is inescapably difficult and often traumatic. Fortunately, in the midst of struggle and sweat, we are provided a deep well in which we can sink for sustaining water of life. 

With no concern for our emotional, mental, or spiritual capacity to process change, it feels like our entire existence has been tossed up into the air and everything familiar rearranged!  We have been left disoriented, going through the motions, and tired, so tired. In this series of sermons we will listen to the call of our faith through simple stories that ground us anew, help us remember whose we are and spark in us new energies.  


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9
