I began a blog when I was first ordained a pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA) in 2011.  I wanted to reach out with the love of Christ beyond the walls of my small church in rural Renville, Minnesota, and also to keep my congregation connected to the church, though they might be unable to attend worship on Sunday morning. I ended up with a whole new “congregation”–fellow spiritual journey-folk seeking a life with greater meaning, a deeper faith, and a more hopeful existence. Some people who read my blog had never attended worship at my church–and that continues today with this “new” blog, begun after I accepted a call to a new congregation — Merritt Island Presbyterian Church in Merritt Island, Florida. You will find at my blog copies of the text from which my messages are preached on Sunday mornings and special services, including weddings and funerals. This blog is not intended to be a substitute for worship with your local faith community. But I pray you will be blessed and inspired to share God’s Word with a broken and hurting world!

Love in Christ, Pastor Karen Crawford

  1. Karen, Can we get your permission to use the image of Isaiah 6:8? We would like to use it for a non-profit purpose. This will be the scripture for an Emmaus walk that will be held in the spring. That image will go on notebooks made for the walk. Please let me know. Thank you.
