Elevated Perspectives

Things Look Different Up Here One of the many appeals to living in Western Montana is that you can always get to higher ground. Hiking up Mount Sentinel or even driving up to the benches on Mount Dean Stone changes the elevation enough to get a different view of where we live, and perhaps even a different perspective on life. This Sunday, we continue with part two of our series, “I Look to the Mountains.” This time our mountain stories tell us how the prophet Elijah changed the view of what God really was all about, then Jesus tells another mountain top tale about how we all can see God’s face together. Please join us online or in person 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
