Here at St. Francis we strive to be a diverse and nurturing faith community, radiating God’s love and peace in our ministry to the world, and welcoming everyone to active worship and service. We welcome everyone to worship God together, to be transformed by the Holy Spirit and each other, and to share the light of Christ in the world.
With love and care for you all, Rev. Paula

Readings for March 29 – 5th Sunday in Lent
Why didn’t you hurry, Jesus?
You loved Lazarus, Martha and Mary… Lazarus was ill and died. And when you finally arrived, you prayed out loud and raised your dear friend from the dead.

Jesus is the resurrection and the life and can transform what we are going through and what we are going through is very hard. We are suffering grief because what was normal is gone.

Pay attention and listen carefully as God leads us forward and look for new meaning… and practice kindness and pray.
