  • Sunday, may 8  - Connected by sacred scars

    We revisit the wonderful story of Honest Thomas, this time to delve into the deep truth it wants to teach us about our scars. We tend to cover up our scars and hide our woundedness from each other.

    In the story, the resurrected Jesus keeps his wounds and scars and uses them as a way of connecting with Thomas. Our wounds and scars also are a sacred means of connection to God and to one another. They become a means of grace if we allow it and work with it.

    We’ll discuss our scars Sunday during our service at 10 a.m. at the East Butler YMCA.

    rev. dr. aaron maurice saari

    Welcome, friends, from wherever you are, to this moment in time when we come together as a people impacted by substance use and abuse, who connect with God as an act of sobriety and witness. I’m Pastor Aaron, and I’m a drug abuser and alcoholic in recovery. I’m glad to be here and I’m glad you are here as well. Please join me in our responsive Call to Worship.

    We started a “Church Chat” Zoom in the early weeks of the pandemic. It has evolved into a space for our young people to gather every Wednesday night from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and talk about whatever is happening in their lives. Let Pastor Joe know if you are interested in hopping onto one of the Zooms.
