God hears the pleas of the hungry and invites us to listen and act – to pray and never give up. The world is full of the pleas and cries of the hundreds of millions who hunger. World Food Day asks us to listen and to act.Door Rev. Scott Clark
 
In a world of power-over, the Good News lies in the agency and freedom that God gives us to live – by the power of the Spirit – lives that work for freedom, for the common good, and for the well-being of all people. God gives us agency and freedom to work for the common good, within the context of the constitutional structures of nations.…
 
Like, Paul and Lydia and Ananias and Tabitha and the women at the river outside the city gates, and the widows in Joppa, we welcome each other in to the life of Resurrection. In Christ, we experience Resurrection in depth of belonging – in hospitality and tender mercy – embodied in community – embodied in us.…
 
If the stones shout out, what will they shout? Will they shout praise, and protest, and lament? In the fullness of Holy Week, what we experience is Christ filled to the fullness of our humanity, as we are filled to the fullness of Christ’s.Door Rev. Scott Clark
 
With our thoughts on Ukraine, this morning’s psalm takes seriously the suffering of the world and gives it voice. And, at the same time, the psalm holds that lament with hope – hope in a God who is our shelter and our strength.Door Rev. Scott Clark
 
At the Threshold of Forgiveness – by God’s grace, we stand in the life we have lived until now – then we step through... into the life we find in Jesus Christ – we step into the new creation – into a world filled with love, possibility, and hope.Door Rev. Scott Clark
 
Our body is the threshold where we encounter God. The body of Christ – our bodies together in One Body – is where the world encounters God. This Body, this is where Christ is coming to life in the world right now, and we are a part of that.Door Rev. Scott Clark
 
In every threshold, God is with us liberating and empowering us into the next new thing. Thresholds open up the opportunity for us to pause and to ask – Where have I been and what have I learned there? What is being made manifest here and now? And, how shall I now live?Door Rev. Scott Clark
 
As we continue with our Advent theme Embracing Love and Tender Mercy, our worship centered on monologues adapted from Carol Howard Merritt's "I Am Mary." The monologues were adapted by Jessica Powell, with permission of the author.Door First Presbyterian Church of San Anselmo
 
With the world whirling around her, in this moment of calm, Mary hears of the Christ to come, and embraces a love and tender mercy that will upend and change the world for good.
