CURRENT SERMON SERIES:
Changing the World
If you could do anything for God, what would it be? This is the question we will explore this fall through the “Change the World” sermon series. The series is based on Mike Slaughter’s book by the same title which focuses on what it means for each of us to follow Jesus in our daily lives. Slaughter writes, “Everybody wants to change the world, and it all starts with a changed heart. As we grow closer to the heart of Christ, we learn to love others the way he did. Passion for justice and desire to serve flows naturally from a faith centered on the message and mission of Jesus: to bring good news to the poor, release to the captive, and sight to the blind.” My prayer is for the fall sermons to challenge and inspire us to grow in a world-changing kind of faith. In addition to reflecting on the Bible stories and teachings for the week, I would like to invite each of you to participate in a fun adventure as well. My inspiration came from the work of Jane McGonigal on helping people heal through play. The idea for this adventure is simple. From September 1st till October 27, we will go together on a discipleship adventure as secret agents of God’s dream.
