Quote of the Week

Faith is not the clinging to a shrine but an endless pilgrimage of the heart

Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972)

Home Mission Sunday

Our God, supreme and good,

How richly you have loved!

But nations die for lack of food,

And are we still unmoved?

So Keen to eat and drink,

So anxious what we wear!

Our God, reverse the way we think

And teach us how to share.

You made your purpose known

By one rejected man;

The earth his bed, a cross his throne,

New life for all, his plan.
