The Wired Word

The Wired Word for the Week of May 31, 2020

The Navajo Nation has been hard hit by the coronavirus, with its infection rate now being higher than New York City's. Those operating the Navajo and Hopi Families Covid-19 Relief Fund were recently surprised by the number of donations arriving from people in Ireland, but when the whole story is told, we can see it's an example of the "Pay it forward" principle that is a meme in our culture today. 

While Christianity cannot be reduced to just this principle, "Pay it forward" is one place where Christianity and culture have some overlap. 

So for this installment of The Wired Word, we will explore the biblical connections to that concept.


Please join us this Sunday morning at 9:15 via Zoom for a spirited discussion about “the news” and a few Bible passages – Ecclesiastes, Matthew, Galatians– that speak to God’s love as a primary motivator for our charitable acts towards others in this world of ours.  

If you are not yet on the email mailing list and are interested in receiving the materials and/or joining in our discussion, please contact Rev. Linda at or 989-686-1360 x2.
