Ugly apples make especially good cider. These are from our garden. Bring yours for pressing today, starting at 2pm. Rain or shine!


The Denver Statement

"WE AFFIRM that the grace of God in Christ enables sinners to forsake prejudice and see such prejudice as our own and not as God’s."

Thanks to former SJU intern Jill Rode for sharing this, and to the #LGBTQI+ leaders at House for All Sinners and Saints for creating this #DenverStatement in response to the #NashvilleStatement. The Denver Statement – a response to the Nashville Statement by some of the queer, trans, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, gender-queer, asexual, straight, single, married image-bearering Christians at House for All Sinners & Saints (Denver, Co)


100% of donations made through to "Hurricane Response - United States" will be used for this #HurricaneHarvey disaster. 100%.

Lutheran Disaster Response affiliates are already present and have a history of working in the Gulf Coast region. They will provide accompaniment through every phase of what is sure to be a multi-year recovery effort.

May God move our hands and feet and hearts, especially at this time. For all those in need and all those responding, Lord have mercy. The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with more than 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across the 50 states, Caribbean and U.S. Virgin Islands.

To the young man spotted dashing from our tree with a piece of fruit in his pocket and one in his mouth, enjoy them!
