Welcome to the Eighth Day Faith Community

An Ecumenical Church

Children's Sermon 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 Potter's House at 1658 Columbia Rd NW in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood of Washington.  Our church services begin at 10:30 AM Sundays. Click here for map.

God's Righteous Anger

Patty Wudel

Text: Mark 7: 1-23

Good Morning –

Sharing my reflection on God's word with us this morning, I want to acknowledge and give thanks for fierce, heartfelt reflections by Austin Channing, a young African-American pastor for her meditations on being an angry Black, Christian woman.  I also honor Dr Cornel West, for the refiner's fire that burns within him, that is his light.

The last time I shared with you on a Sunday morning, I shared how, thanks to my former colleague, Blossom Williams, an African-American woman about my age, I came to realize how my world view – if we think of our world view as an umbrella – my world view was actually only big enough for me.  Thanks to Blossom, I woke up and knew that I want my world view to be much bigger – to cover and include the world views of my sisters and brothers of color as well as myself and others who grew up unconscious of the privilege that comes to us without our asking – just because we are so-called White.  The last time I shared with you on a Sunday morning, I spoke about how God was putting people in my life who are helping me get a bigger umbrella. 

I Think Therefore I Am/We Belong Therefore We Are

Texts:
John 15:12-17
Romans 12:4-5
Hebrews 10: 24-25
Ps 133

Recently in our Bread of Life church we held a School of Christian living class.  It was a survey class working with topics such as Prayer, Call, Money, Power, and Community. 

I was most fascinated by our class on community, and that is the theme of my sharing this morning. 

In our class we worked with the question, "What does it mean to belong to one another in Christian community and what has been our own personal experience with it."
