Prick up your ears, aging Boomers and former Hippies and surviving Beatniks! Who among you remembers “The Age of Aquarius?”  I’m talking about the song that was in the Broadway musical “Hair,” the song that was a smash hit when recorded by the Fifth Dimension in 1969.  Do you remember? Sing it with me! “When the moon is in the Seventh […]

Bob’s Story
Last Sunday we heard how Pastor Eisenhauer experienced God’s presence in the places she has traveled to. My story about experiencing God’s presence is different. I had turned away from the Church for many years. I had to reach the lowest point in my life before I again felt God’s presence.
I have worked in IT for the past 26 years. I have been a Technical Project Manager […]

Date: June 30, 2019
©Rev. Dee Eisenhauer, Eagle Harbor Congregational Church
1.Where in the world is God? God is at home.  “Home” is a rich, round word, instantly evocative, as complex as a fine wine.  Just as a fine wine is made of earth and sky and human creativity and time, home is a composite of place and people and history and promise and experience.  I am blessed to have more than one […]
