WELCOME TO THE 8TH DAY
An Ecumenical Church
How Do We Sing the Lord's Song in a Strange Land?
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.

Text: Ephesians 5:1
Be imitators of God, therefore, as beloved children, and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Good morning church, I’m excited to be with you all today. I just re-read this verse from Ephesians because my hope today is that this verse will be like a wet-willy. For those of you who didn’t have siblings, a wet-willy is when you surprise someone next to you by licking your finger and putting your finger in their ear. If you have not had the fun experience of being given a wet-willy, allow me to say that it is very strange. My sisters would be able to confirm this for you!
Like a wet-willy, I hope that this verse from Ephesians sticks with you a little bit:
Be imitators of God, therefore, as beloved children, and live a life of love…
What a simple command! May the simplicity of this Gospel command disarm you and lead you today toward freedom, laughter, and courage. Amen.
