Calling Out For Help

We don't talk about it, other than to tell people to "get over it" or "cheer up". We don't address it in church, other than to remind people that they should just have faith. 
These responses are inadequate, dangerous, and damaging. 

And so, on Sunday, we tackled issues of stress, worry, depression and anxiety in connection with the reading from Matthew (14:22-33) and the story of Peter and the storm that almost sank him. 
Today, we are reminded, once again, of how strong those storms that we face can be. Friends, if you are being battered by the storm, if you are sinking in the water...please know that you are loved, that you are not alone, and that help is available. 
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-TALK.

Relationship at SHPC: The Tie that Binds

The Second of Four in our Relationship Series at SHPC...examining what it is that we find in this place together.

So, I guess you could call this a glimpse into what we talked about on Sunday! :-)

Church on Fire

How do we understand Pentecost in the life of the church, particularly today? Is it something that just happened ages ago in place far away? Was it the birth of the church, the start of something new? Or is it something more? Something that can light a fire in us, even today, and set us forth into the world? 

This sermon from Pentecost Sunday delves into and explores these questions, as we seek to understand how and who God is calling us to be in the world.
