A New Humanity – Week 3 (10-18-20)

A New Humanity – Week 2 (10-11-20)

Last week we considered our shared identity as a starting point for loving our enemies. This week, we build on that identity by considering the call to humility. What does humility look like? What might we do and say if we embodied humility more greatly?

A New Humanity – Week 1 (10-4-20)

A new series begins this week. Together, we’re asking questions and seeking answers to how we can embody the new humanity that Christ set in motion through his life, death and resurrection.

Elliot leads us through the incredible process of a star’s death, which gives way to the building blocks of life. This awe-inspiring cycle is what we see throughout creation. Life coming after loss and death. Resurrection. What might this mean for us in our day to day lives?

The Trees Are Talking – Week 1

We begin a four week series looking at incredible aspects of creation, and what they have to teach us about our lives together. This first week’s takeaway: Don’t be a Western Cedar.

Liminal – Stories of the In-Between (week 9)

1 Corinthians 8 and 10 show us that when we are in a liminal space, there is newfound opportunity to let go — to admit that we might not know it all — and that we might need each other (even when we disagree) more than we realize.
