Can you think of a time when someone was unexpectedly kind to you? It may have been a dramatic act of kindness, or something simple and ordinary, but it made a difference for you. When I preach this Sunday, I will share a story about a time when I experienced a surprising kindness from someone I didn’t even know.
The pandemic drags on and we are worried and weary. In that mood, anger and divisiveness and judgment come easily, so it is especially important that we practice kindness to help ease the tensions in our nation and in our homes. This is what we’ll explore in worship Sunday. I hope you’ll join us at 10:00 for our in-person service. We’ll be in the courtyard (rain, smoke, shine, etc.). Wear your masks! A version of the same service will be available on YouTube, premiering at 10 a.m.
Blessings to each one of you,
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
