"I know that my Redeemer lives" Job 19:25

Whoever you are and wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome at Redeemer


Pulpit Swap this Sunday!

This Sunday, I will be preaching and presiding at the St. Francis chapel at the San Francisco Towers, one of five fabulous Continuing Care Retirement Communities in the greater Bay Area, run by Episcopal Senior Communities. Our friend, the Rev. Wendy Cliff, who serves as the Interfaith Chaplain at San Francisco Towers, will be worshipping with you all at Redeemer. Wendy also works as a Team Facilitator for Braid Mission, a ministry of the diocese that reaches out to youth in foster care. After Eucharist this Sunday, she will share more information about Braid and let us know ways that we can support the ministry. Apparently, one of the most effective ways to combat homelessness in the US is to support and mentor children and youth in foster care. I look forward to hearing from you all about how we can collaborate with Braid!  

Because I won't be with you this Sunday and because today is the Feast Day of St. Michael and All Angels, I recorded a sermon for you from my living room this morning, which you can watch and read here. And next Sunday (Oct 8), we will convert the Glenwood Outdoor Labyrinth into our very own St. Francis chapel as we celebrate his feast day and bless the many animals of Glenwood and beyond!

Basic Discipleship Small Groups Continue

As Christians, we are all "Disciples of Jesus Christ," but how do we live into that on a daily basis? What are the basic disciplines of a Christian disciple? The Basic Discipleship Small Group class will offer answers to these questions by teaching the basic spiritual disciplines of prayer, worship and service; and inviting members to share their personal encounters with the divine.  

Joan, Carol Ann, Roy, Paula and Ellis have signed up for the Basic Discipleship Small Group which will meet at 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM on Sunday Oct 8.
