We Have Not Yet Run Out of Grace

In worship Sunday, we’ll think about expectations and how Spirit is in the business of shattering our expectations. What happens is not always what we are expecting. And we’ll think about grace…the gifts and goodness that surround us, even in dark and difficult times. I hope you’ll join us for worship, in person or on-line, at 10:00 am.

I am especially mindful of grace this week because you have been a channel of grace for me, and for that I thank you. This will be my last day with you for this season. Thanks for another great summer! Know that when I am back in Iowa, I keep up with church news so I know what you’re up to, and I hold you in my prayers each day. If you want to reach me, feel free to email or call. May God’s grace surround and support you.



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
