Emotionally Settled? How are you doing?
by Miriam Rossow on April 24th, 2020
Being under quarantine with heavy social restrictions might be physically health-preserving during this time of a serious, highly contagious disease spread, but it is not emotionally healthy. We humans long for human contact. When God created man, He said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”   Read More

by Miriam Rossow on April 11th, 2020
ALLELUIA is a joyful expression meaning Praise the Lord! During Lent we omit the word Alleluia from our worship. Lent is a quiet, reflective season in the church year.

A Different Holy Week
by Miriam Rossow on April 3rd, 2020

It may feel like a violation of our rights (we can discuss that at a different time), but for now the right thing to do is to follow the recommendations and stay home. The right thing to do feels very strange and unknown for us.  Read More
The Triumphal Entry
by Miriam Rossow on April 3rd, 2020
