You shall have no other gods before me.

–Exodus 20:3

At first glance when one looks at the 10 commandments, one may see a lot of “no” and “do nots.” It may sometimes leave us wondering what it is we can do.

However, once we get past the “thou shall not,” we can see that there’s a broader message of how we live in relationship.

You are not an island. No one is. We are intrinsically linked and enmeshed with each other and God who gives us life. So how do we live in this community? In what ways do we give ourselves to the relationships that connect us all? And how does God make it holy?

Why do you give?

Sunday’s Worship Music

The Traditional Worship services will feature the Hymn of the Day “Canticle of the Turning.” Jesus is turning over the tables in the temple and we are recalling Mary’s words having heard of her divine child: “From the halls of pow’r to the fortress tow’r, not a stone will be left on stone.” Jesus comes to make all things new. How will the church be renewed through Jesus?

Music at the New Day Praise service will feature singer and song writer Jonathan Rundman who will help lead worship. With a “heartland” vibe that leans toward rock, folk, and twang, Rundman will lead in singing his song “This Is My Commandment.

Rev. Sarah Teichmann

Pastor of Christian Formation

I love working in a staff where we are able to use each other’s strengths for the glory of God. I am energized by the lay leaders of the church and the creative ways they can extend the mission of Jesus to congregational members and our community.
