Hope's Welcoming Statement

Hope strives to be a safe haven for God's unconditional love.  Every person is invited and encouraged to participate in all Hope activities and roles, including membership and leadership.  In this world most human conflict and separation are caused by differences, like ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, political positions and more. Hope embraces diversity and welcomes all who come through our doors, without exception.

Welcoming Hope

A welcoming message from Pastor Jay

To Those Who Gather Hope,


It is hot outside….It is the middle of July/the Summer… people are coming and going…

AND it's time for our Rabbi in Residence Steve Bob to give us our annual Jewish “check up”

at Hope. Rabbi Steve is coming to us from a few weeks with teenagers at a Hebrew

immersion camp in Wisconsin he helped create many years ago…so he is all “Hebrew’d”

up you might say?


Ezekiel is a tricky book to read to say nothing of preaching, but Rabbi Bob will be doing

exactly that this Sunday, with the Prophetic image of “the Sentry.” What’s a sentry? It’s

the person on top of the wall looking out for that one “thing”, and once it is seen, it is

their responsibility to let everyone else know IMMEDIATELY! I suppose this is like our

automated home security systems today, or perhaps a very perceptive Owl out on top

of the Barn (or maybe a small sentry mouse on look out for the owl!). What is it that

Ezekiel is called to be a “sentry” for? What are you on the look out for in these days?


I invite you to come and welcome Rabbi Bob, to this his fourth annual visit to Hope, to

build Peace, seek reconciliation, and through Rabbi Steve, to “Hear the Word of the Lord”

the day after God’s gift of Shabbat to our Jewish friends, Sunday morn. Come on out!


Pastor Jay
