On Sunday, November 13th at 10am I will be preaching at NE Portland's Ainsworth United Church of Christ, my new home congregation. This is the community of faith I have joined while assuming the position of associate director at The Westar Institute. My sermon - What Does The Lord Require Of Portland? - will look back to the Hebrew Prophets and ministry of Jesus and seek to offer a word of hope and challenge for our city during a difficult period of time for Portland and the nation. I invite you to join me and to meet the wonderful congregation that makes Ainsworth come alive in unique ways each Sunday to carry forth the mission of the church in our city. Ainsworth is a multi-cultural, multi-racial, open & affirming, Just Peace and accessible church.
