During January and early February, we are looking again at the opening chapters of John's Gospel. John is a unique book in the New Testament, breaking the fourth wall of the text and speaking directly to the reader. Jesus is less the herald of the "end times" and more the catalyst for personal transformation, offering us a perfect jumping off point for exploring the meaning of God's promise of newness in the midst of a world that seems to carry on regardless.


UPCOMING

SERMON SERIES

 The Kingdom
and Wealth

As our Pastor prepares for six weeks of paternity leave, Admiral's friend Rev. Bruce Wilson, Jr. will be stepping in to offer a sermon series on one of the most taboo topics in American culture, and certainly in the church: money, and wealth in particular. 


Jesus had more to say about wealth than He ever said about human sexuality, "right belief", or the afterlife... combined! American Christianity, however, has largely spiritualized Jesus' very real and embodied reflections on wealth in this world.


Come join us as we explore this uncomfortable topic as a community seeking to align with the Divine.

Practical Resources for Real Freedom

March 6 and 25, 7-8pm at Admiral Church

"The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous is America's most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality, says Richard Rohr. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to breathe under water and discover God's love and compassion. In this exploration of Twelve Step spirituality, Rohr identifies the Christian principles in the Twelve Steps, connecting The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with the gospel. Rohr offers encouragement for becoming interiorly alive and inspiration for making one's life manageable for dealing with the codependence and dysfunction (sin) rampant in our society."
