Through the Bible, the cornerstone of our faith, we know the stories of God's efforts to communicate with creation and of creation's response. God communicates through rainbows and burning bush, through earthquakes and fire, and through the still small voice. We pray that God will speak through us as we tell new stories of the faith, life and mission found in Christ's church.

    A Pastor By Any Other Name…
    Moving beyond the parish bias to
    celebrate ministry in all its forms

    By Layton E. Williams
