We The People

By | Jul-01-2020 | Learn, Pray, Reflections, Z - Front Page

Yes, this certainly IS a strange 4th of July! I’ve heard so many people say that — or something like that — almost everywhere I’ve been (with my mask firmly in place and six feet away). No big cookouts. No gatherings to enjoy fireworks. No parties by the pool. But there is much to be celebrated because we have been invited, compelled, by our own Declaration of Independence to hold our government accountable to upholding the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.


Your Pandemic / Post-Pandemic Self

By | May-07-2020 | eleven:eleven, Learn, Worship, Z - Front Page

On Sundays, at eleven:eleven downtown, Tom and I have been doing a lot of referencing to the concept of “Shalom”- most often translated as “peace,” but probably best understood as “peace, unity, wholeness of being, harmony.”  Shalom is what God wants for you and me and for all creation.I hope you can join us as Tom and I continue our conversations on “Your Pandemic / Post-Pandemic Self” this Sunday as we’re “gonna get down and dirty with the resurrection”


Ctrl Alt Del – Maybe It’s Time for a Reset

By | Apr-22-2020 | eleven:eleven, Z - Front Page

My husband, Tom, and I are venturing into some new territory – dialogue sermons for the next few weeks during eleven:eleven. Essentially, talking together about what we’re thinking about talking about! It’s a little intimidating for me. But I’m willing to walk some new paths and hope you’ll be there with us as we explore what this time has to offer – as we explore this new series: Ctrl – Alt – Del (Your Pandemic/post-Pandemic Self).

Many of you already know this, but I have a strong German heritage — my father came from a small German community near Brenham and German was his first language.


Lent 2019: This Is Us

By | Feb-01-2019 | Lent

In the wake of all that is going on around us, in our world and even in our denomination, it seems especially important to use this Lenten season as a time to deeply reflect and consider who we are as a faith community.
