This fall we will be looking at the BIG PICTURE of the OLD TESTAMENT,
The STORY of GOD and the Struggles of LIFE.
This Sunday is the final week of our 10 week study. Why do we long for home? Like "ET the fictional terrestrial character" we have this longing to go home. But where is it? What truly will satisfy our hearts desire for home? This week as we conclude our journey through GOD's story and the Struggles of life we will share in the struggle of finding home.
SERMON TITLE: Where is HOME? Jeremiah 31
Sunday WORSHIP 10 AM Sacred Liturgy & Communion
2 Thess. 2:13--3:5
One universal lesson experienced by all of humanity is death. Death, the ending of life, whether that of plants, gold-fish, relationships, and ultimately our bodies is ever- present before us. The evidence is obvious. Denial is temporary. Emotionally we attempt to make sense of it all. The search for death’s meaning opens the mind to the larger question that of life itself. For some the melodies like that from the Lion King’s “Circle of Life” bring some momentary comfort. But is it big enough, ‘lives spent to become fertilizer for the next generation continuing endlessly?” (Timothy Keller)
In our Scripture lessons for this week, the unknown, the
un-experienced is thrust forth with the confidence of personal conviction. Life and death is stitched together in resurrection’s reality.
Our Anglican worship tradition is shaped by the Scriptures, Sacraments, and the Holy Spirit. Each week we share in the faith forming and sustaining practices saturated with the Word of God, prayers, praise and communion.
It is our desire to share God's extravagant grace and love with our community through
sharing in one of the most common experiences the table.
Our Table of Grace ministries focus around three tables: the communion table, our gathering tables, and community tables.
