I Prayed For Patience, God Gave Me Children

Now that you have had the baby … Now that you have heard the message of Jesus … Do you have a plan? Will you take the message to heart? More than one parent has concluded that the only way to really learn how to be a “mom” or a “dad” is by way of on the job training. We begin our January Series this Sunday, looking at four stages of parenting, beginning today with “The First Day Home”. The parenting (and spiritual) challenges are legion … Do you have a plan?

Our text for this Sunday is I Samuel 1:1-20man_plans_and_god_laughs_yiddish_proverb_bumper_sticker-r661c3039e9364ee7a3baf2465aeee498_v9wht_8byvr_324

My personal mission is to translate the life and teachings of Jesus to the next generation of peace and justice seekers in and around Burlington Vermont. I’m always up for a friendly argument, a free hug, or to be available as a compassionate ear or shoulder to cry upon. I have an insatiable curiosity for ideas and love to talk about theology, religion, politics, science, or whatever is on your mind. My current passion is about peeling back the centuries of church tradition in order to find the root of our faith in the teachings and ministries of Jesus so that it can be put into practice. After fifteen years of professional ministry with young people I still love watching a newly empowered Child of God set out to change the world!
