This week, our delightful journey through the gospel of John's "Garden of Joy" brings us to... the cross? Yes, "there was a garden in the place where Jesus was crucified" (John 19:41)--the pain and trauma and grief of such a horrific event is right there in between the beautiful words of comfort and inspiration. Does this mean for us, on Eternity Sunday, that our grief and pain and trauma also belong, that we will not be crushed by them, that we can together make space for even the worst of endings and trust that this, too, shall somehow be transformed into new life? Come and see.

Last weekend MCC hosted their annual Peace conference, centering themselves around the theme of Restoring Justice: exploring how to do justice better.

Footwashing? As in, the ritual that some churches do once a year during Holy Week? That's about following Jesus' example in humility and service, the status and work of the servant and their master flipped upside down. That's true, but it's not the whole story. The footwashing story of John's gospel (ch 13) is also about intimacy, knowing and being known. We're well practiced in the serving and giving piece; are we also willing to receive?
