Another Revelation

UCC Missoula, you are on fire. The Holy Spirit is doing wonderful things at our church! This Sunday, we rejoice in Pentecost (the birthday of the church) by celebrating two baptisms, welcoming 6 new members, receiving Holy Communion, and having our first potluck in over two years! Wahoo!  We are also celebrating Pride by claiming ourselves as out, loud and proud followers of the liberating Gospel of God’s never-ending love. Wear your fire colors and bring a side dish for the BBQ potluck to follow as we revel in God’s new light and new hope yet breaking forth!

Everything Changes
In our sermon series we are exploring how our brains were designed to be suspicious of change, and for good reason–homeostasis in good measure helps us thrive, protecting us from danger. But if we look closely at what the Creator set in motion, we find that change is the most constant part of life and necessary for animating our spirits as we find renewed purpose throughout life. Jesus advocated for changes that would keep us moving toward greater goodness!  “Everything Changes” John 12:20-26 In our scripture this week Jesus asks us to let go of life “as it is” in order to create and multiply the love that is eternal. What feels like the chaos, or recklessness, of change is the breaking-open of possibility and the sprouting of new life. This is what it means to follow the change-maker Jesus and serve his purpose of more love in the world. -Pastor Courtney
