in her kitchen and we are watching at home.
“ “Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.” John Lewis

get out of the boat
August 9, 2020
It’s Pastor Pam Tinnin joining you again from Kitchen Church in my very own kitchen. We are the Guerneville Community Church-United Church of Christ in Guerneville, California. We are Open & Affirming which is our way of saying everyone is welcome. We are in the pandemic lockdown which means we cannot gather together in our small sanctuary but are staying in touch through the miracles of modern technology and, of course, through the unbreakable bonds of love and prayer. Today’s message was inspired by several things: some of my own memories, some events I’ve witnessed in others’ lives, and the book of Matthew, chapter 14, verses 22 to 31. It was also inspired by a photograph I saw this morning of a nurse in Beirut, Lebanon holding the three tiny newborns that she rescued from a bombed out hospital. Ordinary people—they don’t have special powers or wear capes, streaking through the sky. They hear the Holy One calling and in one way or another they answer, “Send me. Send me.”
