Renewed Callings

by Shawnee St. Paul's

God has given each of us gifts and graces for the building up of the kingdom. Though not everyone is called to ordained ministry, everyone is called to ministry through service to God and others.

Merry Christmas by Tim Boyer

by Shawnee St. Paul's

Well the weather here in Oklahoma has been pretty sunny this week, warm highs in the 50’s and little wind; it’s hard for me to believe that Christmas Day is just 5 short days away. Hopefully those festive feelings will come soon for me. After all, it will be Christmas Eve and most of the […]

by Shawnee St. Paul's

Sharing Warmth with Scarves

by Shawnee St. Paul's

“It means so much to have been able to go with our church to hang warm scarves on the street lamps and bike racks downtown Sunday night.

Choosing Joy by Tim Boyer

by Shawnee St. Paul's

And Mary said, I’m bursting with God-news; I’m dancing the song of my Savior God. God took one good look at me, and look what happened— I’m the most fortunate woman on earth! What God has done for me will never be forgotten, the God whose very name is holy, set apart from all others. […]
