In Memoriam: Gay Currie Fox

If you knew Gay at all, you knew that despite her diminutive size, she was a force of nature. And she died the way she lived: on her terms. She waited to shout her hosannas one last time, then passed peacefully on Palm Sunday, surrounded by her family.  Our life as a congregation will not […]

Really Good News

Dear friends,   Christmas, it seems to me, is the perfect time to share good news of great joy.  The story that follows is not Gospel-level good news.
