Some hovering has become necessary because the world has changed. But other… Read more »

Note from Nicole This coming Sunday… Dear St. Andrew Community, Spirit was my first love as a child. It was the wordless thing that made me feel safe in my tummy. It was the kind eyes that welcomed me in, and the branches of trees that held me. In 2015, as part of the ordination… Read more »

Note from Nicole This coming Sunday… Dear St. Andrew Community, About a month ago, in a sermon, I mentioned a verb that’s still relatively new to our English language. The verb is “othering” and it occurs whenever one of us places a label, a stereotype, or a preconceived idea about who someone is without really… Read more »

Note from Nicole This coming Sunday… Dear St. Andrew Community, Easter falls on a Sunday again this year! That’s dorky pastor humor and it never gets old. Neither does the Easter story. That’s my hope, anyway. I’m grateful that each Gospel writer’s version of the witness to the resurrection is different, but the message is… Read more »

Note from Nicole This coming Sunday… When my son was three, he must have remembered turning two, because he asked us not to sing “Happy Birthday” to him. That’s when I remembered how hard he cried at the age of two as we placed a cake in front of him, all eyes on him and… Read more »
