The Transfiguration: “Get Up and Don’t Be Afraid”

Eagle Harbor Congregational Church, February 26, 2017
 
Jesus and three of his disciples went up to the mountain, and while they were there, Jesus was transfigured. His face shone like the sun and his clothes were brighter than the brightest white. He was literally awe-some.
 
When I think about the transfiguration of Jesus, it feels magnificent and immensely holy. God’s voice filled the air, saying “this […]

         Question: When was the last time you felt Holy?  One of the blogs I read regarding the Leviticus text asked that excellent question.   “When is the last time you felt holy? Happy? Yes. Busy? Yes. Excited? Yes. Even deeply moved? Yes. But holy?”[1] The blogger pointed out that we tend to think of “holy” as […]

Walk This Way

Walk This Way 2/12/17 Sue Sutherland-Hanson for EHCC
Scripture: Genesis 3:8; Psalm 119:1-2; John 8:12; Matthew 6:22
My fairly recent move to join the United Church of Christ occurred because I was impressed with the great concern this denomination has for justice.  I was able to have an incredibly satisfying day of practice this past Thursday, when I had the privilege to join several from this church and Kitsap at large when we, as members of FAN (Faith Action Network) went to […]

It was a time of deep uncertainty.
Do you hear that? It was a time of deep uncertainty, when God called for the prophet to lift up a voice like a trumpet. The temple had been destroyed, and many of the former leaders exiled […]

It’s a nightmare scenario: You are being sued, and called into court to defend yourself. You arrive in the courtroom, and instead of seeing the jury box full of ordinary Kitsap County citizens, the courtroom has expanded to an immensity capable of seating the hills and mountains as the jury. Mt. Ranier is the […]

Reflections on the Womxn’s Marches, January 21, 2017

Women and men flocked by the tens of thousands to Womxn’s Marches on January 21, 2017. Most participants reported feeling powerfully uplifted by their experience. From Eagle Harbor Church alone, there were more than four dozen people participating in marches on Bainbridge Island, Seattle, Washington D.C. and Olympia. Those who attended worship on January 22 were still fizzing and popping with such energy that we had to bring the “Whoo!” into the pew or we might have burst. We want […]
