From Palms to Passion

Sunday is Palm Sunday, a day in the life of the Christian Church that commemorates Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem just before his crucifixion. This year the Worship and Spiritual Life team decided to have a Palm to Passion worship service. Together we will journey through the last week of Jesus' life through scripture, reflection, and musical responses. All the while, we ponder the questions of our Lenten season, "who do you say I am? Who do you think you love? Who do you think you are? What do you think you own? What is it worth?" Join us online or in person at 10am.

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
