The Tree of Ruth

In Matthew's genealogy of Jesus, only four women are mentioned.

Each of them, through initiative, heroism and determination, contributed to the messianic line, and set the pattern for Jesus’ family tree.

Tamar, at risk of death, ensured the messianic line through her sons; through Rabab’s courage Israel entered the promised land; through Ruth’s unflinching loyalty to Naomi she and Boaz became great grandparents of David the king; through Bathsheba’s courageous intervention the Davidic throne passed to Solomon.

In Epiphany, we will be looking at the lives and stories of these women, who are heroines of the faith, and whose stories call for study and celebration.

2015 October Services - Gratitude

In October - with an eye on the calendar - we reflected on gratitude; how we experience it, and what we are called to do in return. On Thanksgiving Sunday (Oct. 11), our theme was Thanksgiving. October 17 was the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and our service on the 18th explored how compassion and empathy call us to act for the eradication of poverty. Our service on Peace Sunday, October 25 focused on how we are called as peace makers, and what we can do.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring

And know the place for the first time.
