Welcome to 8th Day Faith Community



An Ecumenical Church

We meet for worship at 10 AM in the Festival Center (1640 Columbia Rd)

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 be with you today, and to offer the teaching on Pentecost Sunday.  To witness this time of re-commitment and communal dedication is a real gift, one that calls each of us to bring our fullest selves forward, leaning in to listen for our how own desires might align, or perhaps be re-aligned, with the Spirit’s work in the world.  While The Potter’s House has commanded my fullest attention over this past year, Eighth Day remains a home community and space of belonging for me.  Words cannot express my gratitude for your ongoing accompaniment and encouragement of us at The Potter’s House, and all the ways that you share in our mission and make it possible.

It is an honor to be with you today.  I am always honored to get share my experiences, especially with you, 8th Day Church.  I have so much to learn from you and your faith and am humbled that I get to share mine. 

Today, I’d like to share a bit of myself with you.  I’d like to share about the experiences I’ve had and what motivates me in life.  Most importantly, I’d like to share with you about the Jesus that I know and love. 

I grew up in a Christian faith environment, believing that God was good, that God loved humanity and cared deeply for us.  At the same time, I had the privilege of living in Africa for four years when I was younger, as my parents were teachers there.  Having that cross-cultural experience at a young age has impacted me and shaped my perspective on life.  When you’re a young boy of eight or nine and you see children your age homeless and starving on the streets, while you go home at night to a warm meal and loving parents, that tends to leave a mark.
