Searching for Wholeness and Completeness
The parable of the lost sheep and the parable of the lost coin are about more than an animal and some money. They are about finding wholeness, says The Rev. Mike Marsh., rector of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Uvalde, Texas.

“All you need is love,” sang the Beatles. We should have listened to them. “We have become disconnected from this feeling of Love. All other issues find their roots here,” writes Justin Faerman in this reflection.

Pilgrims Journeying Within
Going on pilgrimage requires that we pack lightly. Join us this Thursday, September 15, as we discern what to leave in, what to leave out for our journey inward. Using The Soul of a Pilgrim by Christine Valters Paintner as a guide, together we prepare for the journey ahead. Join us on Zoom every Thursday, 4 p.m. (Central time).
