No Satisfaction?

 We are continuing our Lenten journey towards Easter by looking at the abundance the prophet Isaiah gives us a glimpse of in Isaiah 55:1-9. “Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy?” He asks us. Important questions in the face of sequestration, rampant consumerism, and the emptiness we all face.

We will be celebration communion at both churches this Sunday. Please join us around the table!
