Jesus' Bridge Ministry Show Me Don't Tell Me

We continue to journey with Jesus in his Bridge season between resurrection and ascension. This week we face our learning through doing. The mantra of “show me don’t tell me” could be Thomas’ words as he hears stories of Jesus’ appearance but has not seen Jesus himself. I want to be like Thomas. Let us learn by practicing worship together and leaning on each other in this space of faith and doubt. John 20:24-29 is our text. We hope you’ll join us in person 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
