Psalm 23  1The Lord is my shepherd;  I shall not be in want. 2The Lord makes me lie down in green pastures  and leads me beside still waters. 3You restore my soul, O Lord,  and guide me along right pathways for your name’s sake. 4Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil;  for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;  you anoint my head with oil, and my cup is running over. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,  and […]

God may be the source of love, but people are often the vessels. Once you understand that, you also start to understand that connecting to the Holy Spirit isn’t about what we say in our house of worship on a Sunday….It’s the community of love we create for ourselves and for others. When that happens, God’s there. That’s God showing up. We’re resting in God’s hands.                         Love is the Way, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry  God Is Here! 1    God is here!
