There will be red and yellow ribbons to grab on your way in the door to wave about at the start of service. If you had some orange ribbon at home, feel free to cut off a strip and bring it in to wave about. AND … should you feel so moved, please wear orange, yellow or red clothes!!!! read more

    Yesterday there was a gathering at the church to celebrate the life of Margot Thomson. Many of you will remember Margot and Sandy who had regularly attended Highlands since the mid-80s. Their kids were married at Highlands. Grandkids baptized among us. They had been part of our community for nearly 50 years. And it was such a gift to gather and celebrate the blessing of those years and Margot’s life and character. Her granddaughter referred to her as a “sparkplug.” Don’t you dream of someday being referred to by a grandchild as a sparkplug? read more

All the mysteries of the universe are, one by one, being explained by science. read more
