RECENT POSTS: 

Continuing our reflection on the Book of Numbers this week, we move from exploring the "old generation" to the "new generation" and a study of the story of Balem and his donkey.

Last week we were at the home of Herbert H. Dow and this week we move to the home of his son, Alden B. Dow. Like Caleb, Alden represents a new spirit, challenging the constructs and traditions of those that came before him.

Questions to consider:

1 - What story of blessing or promise that can't be stopped can you tell?

2 - How might the blessings that you recieve also be used to bless others?

On this week's Biblical Wild, Bishop Ousley continues on through Leviticus and calls on us to live into our call to love our neighbor and work for justice and peace for all people.

Special thanks to the people of St. John's, Saginaw for being our wonderful hosts this week.

Questions to consider:

1 - In what ways are you holy?

2 - Do you experience points of disconnect between what you proclaim in worship and outside of worship?

3 - How might you find a better connect between the two?
