Generations to Generations

May 5, 2022

It may take a minute to recognize this girl group from back in the day, but they’re the Spice Girls, a British rock band who promoted female empowerment. This Sunday in worship, we’re going to look at another set of Spicy Women, from the genealogy of Jesus according to Matthew. We’re emphasizing the idea of Connections over the next several weeks in church and this Mother’s Day, we’re connecting to our past generations. Please join us in person or online at 10 a.m.!  Special bonus track, here’s the Spice Girls singing their song “Mama”

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
