Help our neighbors in Moore

In the hours following the May 20 tornado in Moore, St. John’s folks were checking in – some recounting near misses and others property damage. We are keeping posted on relief efforts and will be getting the news out to you as the days pass for ways we can help. Our prayers are for all those who have lost homes and loved ones, and for the injured. May the Lord of all life and love, be with them, and may the Spirit fill them with hope.    – Fr. Dwight

Living with an unhurried heart

There is not a moment goes by but that I am pondering the future, remembering the past or working hard on some project in the present. I know that it is the relationships in my life that are most important and have a lasting effect on my life and the life of the world. Despite this knowledge, by mind and my daily duties seem to have a life of their own, dragging me along on a ride in which I am less and less invested.   <more>

A people born of longing

We are a people on the road, bound for a new home. Set free from nature’s instinctual constraints and experiencing the divisions wrought by our own destructive potential, we long to be healed and brought together into a new unity. Caught between earth and heaven, beast and angel, we struggle to give birth to a new humanity from the dust of old. We long for community.

Springing from the heart of God, born of Christ’s voluntary self-giving, that longed-for community grows. It includes ever-widening circles of diverse people. The church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, seeks to be loving community for the sake of the reunion of all people, the transformation of humanity and the healing of creation.
