Worship on Sunday, Feb. 19
Lydia Flora Barlow, our pulpit guest, preached about A Call to Resistance.
As I thought about what to say today I could hear the line of ministers in my family saying “Don’t get fancy Lydia. Go back to the scripture. Talk about what you know. Whats on your heart. The rest will follow. So today I’ll stand with that advice.
Mother Father God, thank you for Matthew 5.38-48
Telling us, commanding us, how to fight for justice
Thank you for souls through generations that have experimented with and left the legacy of fighting in threads reaching out to use through time.
In this time, hearing a new call to resistance from this new generation, may we continue to be drawn from complacency to wise action, and may it bring forth to us the beloved community.

Pat Kile reflects on her participation in the Women's March with good friend Nancy Roberts Brown.
Now I’m in MY 60’s, at least for another year. And on January 21, 2017 I became a protester myself when I participated in the international Women’s March. To be precise, I think I had participated in at least one protest march against the war in Iraq with other Seattle First Baptist members. But it was much smaller and not that memorable. This was memorable—in fact, it was a life-changer. It was truly remarkable in its scope, its organization, and its peacefulness. And it was so energizing to know as we marched that women and men in cities around the world were marching together in common purpose. My daughter Kate was marching in New York and we shared photos back and forth.
