Do you have an empty seat in your car on Sunday mornings?  Would you like to fill that seat with another Rock Springer who could use a ride to church? 

Calling all youth! It’s our first summer “PopUp YoRS.” Summer is the perfect time to have a cold lunch... So we’ll gather in the Saegmuller Room after church and then walk to Zinga for frozen yogurt.

by Laura Martin

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
