Thank You for attending worship each Sunday and making us a vital space for all on the evolving journey of the Spirit.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 7
World Communion Sunday
“The Advantage of Oneness”
The sermon and liturgy will focus on the Genesis admonition to be one flesh. Though it is a command given to Adam and Eve before the fall, Communion is in some ways the resolution of the fall as we partake in “Christ’s flesh”. We will look at how the pursuit of oneness can overcome alienation.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 14
“Courage for Justice”
One of the challenges of being a church is that we are kind of like one big family. Nothing is more gauche at a family table than taking about politics or religion. People tip-toe around certain people knowing if so and so doesn’t have a good time no one has a good time. No one wants to offend the “big cheese”. People cut the ends off the ham before putting it in the oven “because it was always done that way.” In truth the teachings of Christ are radical and would be threatening to any family. The fact is a church is not always comfortable. If it is, it’s probably not really a church.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 21
“A Life of Service”
The theme for this Sunday focuses on Christ’s teaching to serve. Greatness is determined by those who serve the most.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 28
“With Jesus as our Priest”
As we enter reformation Sunday we think about what it means to have a direct, unmediated relationship with Christ.
