The second word in our 2018 INVITE Challenge is VOICE. This is all about speaking out loud to others how you see God working in your life or the world and telling people what you find meaningful about Calvary. It can be intimidating or uncomfortable to talk to others about faith or church, but there are easy ways to working "God" and "church" into your everyday interactions with folks. Read More…

A Collective Grief

"The Ash Wednesday mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., is the ninth-deadliest American mass shooting in modern history. It is the largest in a school since the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn, that killed 27. It is the 25th mass shooting - defined as four or more injured or killed at one location, not counting the shooter - so far in 2018, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a non-profit research group not affiliated with any advocacy organization founded in 2013. The AR-15 style rifle used in Wednesday's attack - a civilian model of the military's M-16 - is the same weapon employed in mass shootings at last fall's Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, the 2016 Pulse night club shooting in Orlando, Fla., last November at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, and at Sandy Hook."

For many Sundays I have worshipped with you, celebrated with you, and grieved with you. It has certainly been a journey, and I am thankful to have met each of you along the way. Read More…

Living Sabbath Experience

Last weekend a group of twenty-nine of us made our way to YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park to explore what Sabbath means for us today. Our faithful retreat leaders were Brad and Rita Berglund. Throughout the weekend they did a beautiful job of guiding our understanding of the roots of Sabbath in Scripture for our brothers and sisters of the Jewish faith, and how these roots impact our wellbeing today.
