“Show the world that we belong to Christ”
by the Rev. Mary Sulerud, Interim Rector
“I sharpened my two-edged sword
Of justice and truth
And took it to the altar
To be blessed by God.
‘Why thank you Ellen,
Another pruning hook.’
Knowing that God was not the blind one,
And realizing once more,
That if God has enough mercy to forgive me,
God has enough mercy to forgive my enemies.”
The Reverend E. Ellen Adams, from Women’s Uncommon Prayers
I have only ever had one sabbatical and I spent much of it in Scotland at the height of the IRA bombings in Great Britain. I never gave much thought to the cause of that rage. I mostly cursed the inconvenience of carrying all that trash around in my pockets and my purse until I could get home and throw it away. There were no trash cans on city streets because they were too easy a container for bombs.
Then late last Monday I turned on the television as an endless tape loop of the explosions at the Boston Marathon played. Dear God, not again came to mind. (read more)
Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill is a Christian community in the Episcopal tradition, striving to be in relationship to God and to each other as Christ has taught us, actively attempting to sense and to serve God’s plan with great love. We are guided by the scripture passage in Mark 16:15, Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to learn, discern and proclaim the good news by being active ministers in the various communities where we live and serve.
The masthead image is of the "Miriam Window" illustrating Exodus 15:20-21, in which Miriam and the women praise God for delivering the Israelites. This was a stained glass window from the historic Immanuel Chapel, our parish's primary place of worship since 1941, which was destroyed by fire in 2010.
