Today’s sermon was in tandem with the children’s time, where our children were charged to go out and look for signs of the Spirit in action in our world, and list where they’re seeing the spirit at work on a poster down in our fellowship hall. We gave them simple clues to look for the spirit (signs of beauty, signs of love, anything that feels like God), and spent time in the sermon unpacking more thoroughly what the spirit looks like in our midst.

Thanks to Bonnie Trafford for reading scripture. For more about City of Refuge UCC, the church I visited in Oakland, learn here:
