Post-Election Reflection and the Image of Christ by the Rev. Will Compton

Let’s not talk politics, but let’s talk about politics.

I also thought long and hard about preaching on the aftermath of the election, but I didn’t. The only mention made this past Sunday about the election was praying for Donald, the President-elect, in the Prayers of the People.

The Gospel and Gone with the Wind by the Rev. Will Compton

A month or so ago, I received a text message from a friend. “Have you ever seen Gone with the Wind,” it read. “Oh gosh, I thought.

The Chapel is My Home by Laura Lee Boyles

The Chapel is my home. The Chapel has been my home since I was a one-year old, and now I am 14. I have been attending my school for 9 years, my ballet school for 12 years, martial arts for a year now, and I have been living in my house for 5 years. I consider all of these places my home, but the one place that has been my home the longest, is the Chapel. Going on 13 years, the Chapel has always been a place that I consider my home.
