“There is a fragrance in the air, a certain passage of a song, an old photograph falling out from the pages of a book, the sound of somebody's voice in the hall that makes your heart leap and fills your eyes with tears. Who can say when or how it will be that something easters up out of the dimness to remind us of a time before we were born and after we will die?” “There is a fragrance in the air, a certain passage of a song, an old photograph falling out from the pages of a book, the sound of somebody's voice in the hall that makes your heart leap and fills your eyes with tears.

When Jesus speaks to Mary, she does not recognize him because she is not looking for him. She does not expect him to be alive. By repeating the question the angels asked, Jesus reinforces for the readers that the joy that should be experienced is absent here. Often in life, good things come our way, but we do not recognize them because we do not expect them or we are looking for something else.


We are a small, friendly, congregation nestled in the southern part of Walnut Creek, East Bay, CA.  We have our roots in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) but over half of our members come from a variety of other backgrounds.

We welcome you to join us on Sunday morning as we gather together to drink deeply from the Living Water. We are
learning together to live out the teaching of Jesus Christ.
We value, compassion, tolerance, love that serves one another, music humor, eating together, and the Scripture - not necessarily in that order. We are intentional about integrating our children into  worship.

Old, young, or  in-between, Come find a place to belong!
