Holy Wonderings. This Lent we are leaning into the questions of faith. Who am I? How will I follow? Who do you love? And Who do you think you are? This week we ask the big question: How shall we live? As we encounter a conversation between Jesus and a scroll keeper. Rabbi Mark and I will share our own conversation “Around the Word” with you all on Sunday. It will be exciting as we look deeper into the question, “How shall we live?” We hope you will join us. Mark 12:28-34.

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
