It’s been two years. Two long and too long, traumatic years since we’ve been able to gather to hear our most sacred stories. Too long since we’ve been allowed to “congregate” and share the full Holy Week experience from Palms to Passion to Passover to Easter Resurrection.

But Good News is among us again. This week, through the grace of God and the miracle of vaccinations, we will sing our holy songs and wave our blessed palms. We will be the church together for our Resurrection season. Please join us!  

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
