Reading the Bible literally can be a dangerous proposition. We can end up backing ourselves into corners that force us to choose between upholding a rigid belief on the one hand, and a relationship with a living, breathing human being on the other. Reading the Bible literally can make people do things in the name of God that contradict the overarching themes of love and forgiveness found in the very same book. We try very hard not to fall into this trap. In fact, nothing is more important than our relationships with one another. One reason the Bible is called The Good Book is because part of the core message contained there is reconciliation and the value of our relationships. At Community Congregational Church in Pullman, we try to be led by the love and mercy of God and our call to compassion, not by rigid interpretation of scripture.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
