Fall Sermon Series
“Our identity is the sum of the stories we tell about ourselves. Our worldview is the sum of the stories we tell about others.” (Tony Schwartz)
We all know the tragedy when a person lets one or two events define their lives. When the divorce, the broken friendships, or the lackluster marriage tells us that we are failures at relationships. When the loss of job or lack of job tells us that we have no talents to offer to the world. When the addiction or the abuse pushes us back down into a small box where there is no light. But what if we are telling the wrong story about ourselves and the wrong story about the world.
Join us this fall as we look at the story of God as revealed in Scripture. Join us as we look at the true story of the whole world (as MIchael Goheen and others put it). Starting Sunday September 13th through Christmas we will go through the Old Testament as it points to the incarnation of God in Jesus, which we celebrate on Christmas day. We will then continue through Mark’s Gospel following Jesus from birth to the cross and his resurrection on Easter morning.

Despite this, there is still one area of my life that I am a little uncomfortable talking about with others, and that is my faith. ... (read more)
