Lent for Everyone?

Posted by Dani Forbess on

Lent makes less and less sense in a world of instant consumerism. When we want something, often it requires just a login and password. If we are fortunate, perhaps it will just require an old fashioned transaction. Either way, we live in an economy of performance. We expect items to perform for ...

Sometimes it can be so hard to get around a website, that it helps if the information is as many places as possible. Here are some notes about what is happening around Northminster during the Advent season.  December 11th  10:30am - Children's Christmas Pageant  December 11th - ...

What's Happening

Posted by Dani Forbess on

At Northminster, we send out an email once a week called, What's Happening. It helps our community stay in the loop about the events in the building and beyond. It's an important way to keep connected - like a weekly planner for the community.  We strive to be a local church thinking about ...

It's the Little Things

Posted by Dani Forbess on

In a world where growth is measured by size and expansion, it is hard to make sense of the purpose of little things. Why set aside the time to prepare a meal from scratch, make bread, plant seeds, or visit a neighbor? Why give to one person when there are twenty, no fifty, more who need the very ...

The six weeks following Easter are known as Eastertide. We don't think of that anymore. We barely even realize that some of the world celebrates Easter Monday as a holiday. But yes, Easter is such a great season in the church that it does indeed last more than one day. It stretches out for 6 full ...

Sick days are bound to happen. As a mother of three, the winter is rarely kind to us all. Both my husband and I find ourselves adjusting work and appointments to accommodate the little sick ones that need to stay home. One of the great things about sick days is that we have permission to just ...

Love and Conflict

Posted by Dani Forbess on

Most of us are conflict avoidant. I know that I am. I think of it as a positive trait much of the time. Who wants unnecessary conflict filling the hours of a good day's work? Sooner or later we all come to terms with the fact that life is too short and it is not worth wasting on a gloomy ...

A Voice

I know that it’s not always arbitrary, and that someone out there knows exactly why bottles of fluids can be no more than 4 ounces when traveling within the guidelines of the FAA.  But when my bottle of hair conditioner is 5 fluid ounces and they won’t let me through security, it ...
