What’s Going On?

Our Current Worship Series is…

Brewing Community — “For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.” (Rom 14:17) Enough judging each other! Let’s welcome with grace, the way Jesus welcomed the outcast and downtrodden.

Equality and Justice — “Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish! Let them drink and forget their poverty, and remember their misery no more. Speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” (Prov 31:6-9) The Rev Martin Luther King Jr probably never expected those first two verses to land on his weekend, but the last two are a command to DO justice!

Everything Is Spiritual — “Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.” (Gen 9:20-21) You don’t remember this part of the Ark story, do you? Self-control does not mean abdicating joy; and joy does not mean giving up control. You can find spiritual depth in all things!

Repair the World — “Don’t eat it with bread made with yeast… because you left Egypt in haste.” (Deut 16:3) “What shall I compare the Kingdom of God to? It is like yeast…” (Luke 13:20) Some beer is brewed quick, with light yeast. Other is full of yeast that slowly turns the sugar into happy little alcohol molecules. Some faith is lived by getting out there boldly and doing the work of healing the broken parts of the world! Other faith grows slowly, trusting in God to take our small efforts and produce amazing things.
