FAITH COMMUNITY

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.

Looking Forward to the Fruits of the Spirit

Kevin Boteler

Texts:
     1 Kings 19:19-21
     Luke 9:51-62
     Galatians 5:1,13-25

I think that the last three verses of today's Epistle is one of the great passages in the Bible.  I love the listing of the wonderful fruits of the Spirit; I would love to just luxuriate in them for a while and call it a sermon.  But as I look at today's combination of lectionary passages, I don't think we can fully appreciate the Epistle without first looking at the Gospel passage and thinking about its implications for Paul's letter to the Galatians.
