Jesus' Bridge Ministry The Table

Sunday, we continue in Luke's gospel and catch up with ourtwo Emmaus road companions once they return to Jerusalem (Luke 24:36-49).Together, we will hear these words, "the good story would be told to allnations. This story will change hearts and minds and release people from theirbad hearts and broken ways. You, my message bearers, have seen these thingswith your own eyes so that you can go and tell others."  A story tochange hearts and release people from broken ways. What does this mean for us?How does this encourage us to live? Together we explore another resurrectionsighting of Jesus, as he continues his Bridge Ministry. We hope to see you inperson or online at 10:00 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
