Luke 1:30-33
Title: I Believe in the Sun


Advent begins. We proclaim the audacity of hope, even when it seems crazy. I believe in the sun, even when it's not shining. We light one candle this week -- proclaiming that the light of Christ is coming in to the world. Join us for the season of hope lived together with those who remind us that we hope not in vain. This week, we hear the witness of Luke...a story told from Mary's point of view. Each week, we'll hear the story from a different gospel and light one more candle. I believe...

Real Life, Real Faith | Calgon, Take Me Away, 11/25/18

Text: Psalm 37:7-9
Title: Leftovers and Family Fights

We are seeking the holy in our ordinary, every day, real lives. This week, we find nourishment in the mundane and repetitive. Most of our spiritual nourishment comes from the routine practices: daily prayer, study of scripture, weekly worship. Rarely do they produce "mountain top" experiences for us, but they do provide that ongoing source and strength for the hardest work of our faith. Peacemaking, especially in our homes, is hard work. It requires us to give grace, the kind of grace we find in our routine practices. So, join us for leftovers and family fights.

Real Life, Real Faith | It's Morning... Again

Text: Psalm 118:23-25
Title: It's Morning...Again


We begin a new sermon series this Sunday, Real Life, Real Faith...a search for the holy in the ordinary. If we can’t find the holy in our everyday lives, it is unlikely we will find it anywhere else. I’m hopeful that this series will provide a “liturgy for life” -- taking our routine experiences and helping us ritualize them so they can lead us to God. Our focus on Sunday will be morning routines and learning to wake up with God.
