On Food and Forgiveness

March 10, 2022

The Prodigal Son story is about…Food! Wait, what?  Yes, it’s about food, and of course, forgiveness. Forgiveness is the next spiritual practice we’ll explore in our Lenten worship series “Deep Calls to Deep.” We’ll also look at the role of food in the climate crisis and how our food choices can make a difference in our world. Please join us in person or online at 10 a.m. this Sunday.

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
