Message from the Pastor
We are created and born with the deep capacity and call to love extravagantly. A love that compels us to speak and advocate on behalf of another. A love that compels us to fight for and protect one another. A love that declares we are in this life together. A love that urges us to appreciate and value deeply the creative brilliance of difference. A love that gives birth to individual and community authenticity and belonging. A love that expects and demands sufficient provisions, equal rights, and justice for ALL.
We are created and called to a love that seeks and values the divine source of life with all of our heart, mind and soul. We are called to a love that generously permits us to treasure, respect, celebrate and forgive ourselves. The Book of John suggests that our divine source of life that we have come to know as God, loved us so very much that God sent God’s only child to ensure us everlasting and abundant life. This sacred text further suggests that this only child was tried, convicted and executed for sharing this extravagant gift of love.
With urgency, let us dare to go forth to be and experience the heart of God in the world…
– Rev. Dr. Valerie L. Jackson, Senior Pastor
