Pastor Jennifer writes: This Sunday, we kick off our Lenten worship series, “Deep Calls to Deep: Spiritual Practices for the Climate Crisis.” We start with the story of Jesus facing temptation in the desert. We all face temptations to do less than our best in facing the many challenges of our days. We’re too tired for the gym, too busy to go through the recycling, too anxious to have that conversation we need to have. The lesson from this week is about facing the temptations and doing the good work anyway.  Please join us IN PERSON (Hooray!) or online at 10 a.m.

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
