Join us this Sunday as we look at the desire to want to go back to the way things were, when the only healthy option is to go forward. Question is how do we go ahead into new ways of living when we are afraid and just want to go back to the (seeming) comfort of the past.
This service will be led by Peter Buss.
Have you ever tried to stop doing something hurtful but can’t? Have you ever promised to yourself time after time that you wouldn’t do something ever again and before you know it you are back into it?
There are ways to stop, to break the bonds, to step into freedom and the joy that comes with it.
Let’s talk about that this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
This Sunday we celebrate the reported beginning of a new church. This new church is pictured symbolically by the holy city New Jerusalem in the book of Revelation. These visions recorded in the book of Revelation are hopeful promises of a New Church, a new understanding and new Christianity that have descended and are descending into our world. “Behold, I make all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)
This is Memorial Day Weekend. It is a time to remember. It is a time to remember the sacrifice of those who lost their lives to protects ours. On a spiritual level it is a time to remember from where we have come and to where we are being led, and the Lord’s love and mercy that cradle and support us along this journey. It is a time to remember the truths that we hold most dear and remember to live by them. It is a time to remember these things so we don’t forget them. It is much easier to remember to do the things we have in mind. We will talk about how to help keep them in mind this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Please join us!
If we are, as Jiminy Cricket suggests, to let our conscience be our guide, it seems wise to know what conscience is, how we come by one, and how we make sure it is a suitable or useful one (not one that is hypersensitive and leads to nothing but guilt and shame about everything). Come and join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
This Sunday we will look at Fear. How do we move out of a place of fear to a place of strength? How does that happen and what is the antidote for fear? Hint: It is another four letter word.
See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Please join us for an Easter Celebration this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. You are invited to bring flowers to lay down at the altar in remembrance and gratitude to the Lord. Come celebrate this wonderful miracle with us!
An Easter Egg hunt for the children will follow the service.
This Sunday is Palm Sunday. On Palm Sunday we celebrate the Lord Jesus Christ as king. If He is king, where is His kingdom?
“The Kingdom of God is within you.”
See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
The Holy Supper (communion) will be offered.
There seem to be two opposite things being said by Jesus in the New Testament. It is easy to get to heaven (My yoke is easy and my burden is light) and it is difficult to get to heaven (narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life). Which is it?
That is what we will talk about on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Please join us in person or by live stream (see link in menu bar).
This Sunday we will talk about what it is within churches and between religions in general that causes them to be divided rather than united around a common goal.
This also applies to our interpersonal relationships. What is it that we can do to find ourselves feeling connected with others rather than at odds with them.
If you want a preview consider the main thrust of what Jesus taught in the Gospels: Love.
Emanuel Swedenborg wrote: “A doctrinal view is united when everyone loves each other, or displays charity. Mutual love and charity bring such people together into one despite the variety among them, because it draws unity out of variety. When everyone practices charity, or loves each other, then no matter how many people there are—even if they number in the hundreds of millions—they share a single goal: the common good, the Lord’s kingdom, and the Lord Himself.” (Secrets of Heaven 1285)
