We are a small, diverse ecumenical church with members from different faith backgrounds and ways of expressing our faith. We hold in common the desire to follow Jesus through peacemaking, work for justice (especially economic justice), and environmental sanity.All are welcome, regardless of faith (or lack of it), religious background, age, gender, sexual orientation, wealth (or lack of it), ethnicity, or any other characteristic that ordinarily separates us from one another. We are open and affirming and value the differences among us. Check us out! We meet at the Festival Center at 1640 Columbia Rd NW in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood of Washington.  Our church services begin at 10:00 AM Sundays. Click here for map.

Thank you for the opportunity to share today.  I appreciate the chance I had to prepare for this teaching and reflect on my spirituality in the context of this faith community.  This is the first year in the decade that I’ve been attending 8th Day that I haven’t committed to be a community member.  The reason I didn’t commit was because I was distracted with work and other activities over the last couple of years and I wasn’t keeping up with the disciplines I agreed to practice.  I needed to take a step back and re-examine my priorities.  I do miss a deeper connection with God that comes from practicing spiritual disciplines and I would like tpo draw closer again.

In the lectionary scriptures for today, I found two themes.  They seem to represent bad news and good news for humans.  First, I’ll focus on what seems to be bad news.  In these scriptures, God is a judge and divides people who are faithful from those who are not faithful.
