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.

The Universal Family of God and How I Came to Know this Universality

July 26 2015
Text: Ephesians 3: 14-21

Good morning.  I come before you today desirous of sharing, and putting together, pieces of my life and seeking illumination of it in the light of faith. 

Geographically, I feel that my life is a triangle centered upon three points (from each of them that I have gone out).  These are Washington, DC, where I did most of my growing up and have raised my own family, Washington state, where I did much growing and learning of life, and in El Salvador where I lived for six years as I joined in walking with a People seeking peace and justice, where I yet often visit.

I was in Guatemala and El Salvador at the end of March and beginning of April.  I came back, and then just over two weeks ago went out to the Northwest, and am here once again in Washington, DC.  This triangle is as a sacred circle that leads me ever deeper into the labyrinth of life.

Sharing Our Spiritual & Material Blessings

July 19, 2015

Good morning, thank you for this lovely opportunity to share in spiritual teaching.

This time it will be about the idea of sharing our spiritual and material blessings. But before that, I want to point out that today is an important date for the Lutheran church that I’ve grown up in. In El Salvador and Nicaragua, July 19th is the Day of the Youth.

I’d like us to stand for a moment of silence:

  • For the young people who have died for a better El Salvador.
  • For those that have had to grow up too soon.
  • For the young people in our families and communities here in the United States.
  • For those struggling to find their place in the world as adults, we pray that our society can provide what they need to find their calling and the courage to seek it.
  • For the young immigrant dreamers and their parents that walk a difficult path.
  • For youth without a home and those that must live in many homes.
  • Let us be happy also, for the young people in 8th Day that, like birds, leave the nest and come back a little older. Such as Benjamin that has been coordinating youth teachings each second Sunday, Eugene who is a bright star helping with Sunday services, and Javier who has been working to help people with technology, and many others. May God help them keep helping us.
