United Church of Christ
“I do not understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us. ”
- Anne Lamott
The people of the Amherst Community Church come from a variety of religious traditions. This makes for an interesting mix! We bring our questions, our doubts, our beliefs, our criticism, our willingness to both ask questions and lean into faith in order to make our lives, and the world, a better place.
GOD FROM BEHIND
Exodus 33:12-23 (MSG)
For those of you who’ve been able to participate pretty regularly in our worship services since around the end of August, you know that we’ve been following along with Moses and the people of Israel as their story unfolds in the book of Exodus. On that last Sunday in August, we thought about the birth of Moses. And now, guided by the lectionary readings that often help us move through scripture in a somewhat orderly fashion, we will be done with the story in Exodus for a while. Beginning next week, the Old Testament readings in the lectionary (which I don’t always follow) guide us into Deuteronomy, and then onto Joshua, Judges, Ezekiel and Isaiah in November. Sometimes, it’s just hard to keep up!
