"I Am:" Seeking the Goodness of God in the Land of the Living
Psalm 27

I was regretting the past
And fearing the future.
Suddenly my Lord was speaking:

“My name is I Am.”

- excerpt of poem by Helen Mallincott

Join Rev. Kimberleigh Jordan at Ten O’clock Hour on June 12 and 19 for a time of spiritual study, reflection, and discussion titled "I Am:" Seeking the Goodness of God in the Land of the Living. In our time together, we will explore Psalm 27 as a description of our human journeys of life and faith, in which we often encounter struggle, accomplishment, mystery, joy, and change. Some say that ‘the only thing constant in life is change,’ while others counter this idea by asserting that Emmanuel “God-with-us” is our only continuous presence.

Join Rev. Kim to faithfully reflect on your experiences, as she reflects on her life and ministry in NYC and prepares to move her family to Atlanta, GA this summer.
