The stories, scriptures, and traditions of the Christmas season have been passed down to us throughout the generations. Many of us enter this season with a swell of memories and emotions as vast as the cultural and religious rituals this holiday holds. Like a tapestry woven throughout time, the Christmas story weaves us in—to remember how God has shown up in the past, to continue the work of collective liberation, to behold the presence of God in flesh and bone. The work of God is always unfolding—in and through us. This Advent, may you remember that you belong—to a story etched into the wrinkles of time, to generations that have come before and will come after, to a love that won’t let you go.

Rev. Dr. Warner M. Bailey Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 12:18-29, Luke 13:10-17 Aug. 21, 2022 Today I want to talk about
We encourage questions– theological inquiry, honest searching–when it comes to matters of faith. We believe in Jesus, but we don’t believe that people get faith by squelching their sincere doubts, fears and concerns. You’re free to be who you are at St. Stephen.
Our faithful commitment to Jesus calls us to serve our fellow human beings, not out of a sense of obligation, but out of a genuine desire to show Christ’s love to neighbor and stranger.
We maintain a tradition of worship that acknowledges the mystery and majesty of God. Our commitment extends to excellence in music, and sermons that are both intellectually challenging and spiritually uplifting.
Here you’ll find rich and poor, young and older, blended families, gay and straight—all working and celebrating together as the Family of God. Here, everyone belongs.
