We live in a creative tension between action and rest, between worry and hope, between fear and trust. Tension, of course, is what allows us to stand up and walk. It is not to be avoided. But we seek some kind of balance—never reaching some ideal state but always adjusting as we go along. The story of Jesus and the storm provides a new way of looking at these challenges.
We will celebrate the sacrament of communion during worship this morning. In the Congregational UCC tradition, everyone is welcome at the table, regardless of church membership or denominational affiliation.
PLEASE NOTE: This Sunday, June 3, is the final day of the Iowa Arts Festival. Clinton, Dubuque, and Linn Streets will be closed between College and Jefferson Streets. The church parking lot will be available. Access to the church will be available from Jefferson Street and from Clinton Street coming from the north. Join us for worship at 10:15 a.m., but plan on a slightly longer walk.
