Peace, happiness and confidence - by grace - arising inside us all. What we know from Christmas, Stephen Hawking writes about as a physicist in his book, A Brief History of Time, “...when a body moves, or a force acts, it affects the curvature of space and time – and in turn the structure of space-time affects the way in which bodies move and forces act. Space and time not only affect but are also affected by everything that happens in the universe.”

We of First church give Mother Earth and its inhabitants energies of peace and healing. The year begins with the season of Epiphany. The stories start with the visit of three pilgrims coming out of the rising sun to lay gifts at Jesus cradle. The New Year teases us into wanting to give ourselves in new ways to life. An "Epiphany" is a revelatory manifestation of God.

Our experience of God's revealing grace can be a sudden, spiritual flash that changes how we view things. For us as a community, looking at property swaps, interim space and a new building shared in a new way with the community, nothing could be a grander blessing than this season of light, signs and wonders.

I've lived all my life in Tacoma, but my wife and I decided to move to the east coast, specifically, to Rhode Island. Over the years I've visited RI many times and always loved it. We are now looking for a new home and have real estate agent helping us locate the perfect home and also help us with everything else real estate related. She is what's called a "Buyer's Agent". She works only for us, not the seller.

The other Sunday during my weekly sermon, I was mentioning to the congregation about the importance for parents of getting term life insurance. You need to think of your kids and spouse if you pass away. If you love your family you should insure yourself. Obtaining life insurance quotes has never been easier. Especially if you have a mortgage, you should protect your family.
