January Theme:
          All Things New


January7: Guest Preacher Rev. Bruce Wilson
Matthew 2:1-12

During January, we will be looking again at the opening chapter 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.

December Theme:
          Do Not Fear


December 17: The Joy We Require
Luke 1:26-38

December 10:
The Peace We Make

Matthew 1:18-25

December 3: The Hope We Cling To
Luke 1:5-23

This Advent (December 3-24), we concentrated on the stories of the angels who announce the coming of God's Anointed One. In each case, the people are overwhelmed and terrified, yet in each case, the angel tells the people, "Do not fear". This message is meant as much for our time as it was for the people two millennia ago: stories leading us away from Empire and towards the manger, and the Child who changed the world.


UPCOMING

SERMON SERIES

 Bound Up

During the season of Lent (February 14 through March 31) we will be exploring stories of liberation in the Gospel of Mark. Jesus heals and casts out demons throughout the Gospels, and here in Mark each story carries with it keys to help us unlock that which binds us up. Join us as we explore the path to freedom offered by Jesus, the Chain-Breaker.

Practical Resources for Real Freedom

"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."
