“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted ...”

— Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

“A new season is moving in. We can sense its presence in the coolness of the breeze and the quick gusts of wind that wrap themselves around browning lawns and fading forest leaves. This time of transition belongs to more than just the earth. Inside of us there are also quiet changes sending us their signals to let go.”

— “Out of the Ordinary,” Joyce Rupp

St. John’s in the Mountain’s remote Sunday Services include the same scripture readings and sermon as in the traditional church service, reminding us that it is the people of faith who are the church and not the building.
