Again & Again

In Lent, we’re reminded that, again and again, suffering and brokenness find us. We doubt again, we lament again, we mess up again. Again and again, the story of Jesus on the cross repeats—every time lives are taken unjustly, every time the powerful choose corruption and violence, every time individuals forget how to love. With exacerbation we exclaim, “Again?! How long, O God?” And yet, in the midst of the motion blur chaos of our lives, God offers a sacred refrain: “I choose you, I love you, I will lead you to repair.” Again and again, God breaks the cycle and offers us a new way forward.

Again & Again

God Meets Us

February 21st

10:00 AM

Again and again, God meets us where we are, but doesn’t leave us there. We shift from sinking sand to solid ground,

navel-gazing to community, personal pietism to justice for all, and away from behaviors, both personal and systemic, that frustrate God’s vision for the world.

Again & again

We're invited in

Again & again

We're called to listen

February 28th

10:00 aM

Again and again, we are implored to listen, especially when what we hear is unsettling. Repentance means changing

direction. Like a heavenly GPS, Spirit is highlighting a new path. May we tune our sensors heaven-ward, despite the

difficulties along the way.

Again & Again

We are shown the way

March 7th

10:00 Am

Again and again we are shown the way, even if God's way feels foolish, counter-cultural, disruptive, or uncomfortable. 

Again & again

God Loves First

March 14th

10:00 AM

Ultimately love is where God begins and ends. This love, like grace is a gift we do nothing to deserve. 

Again and again, love is our refrain. Before we act, think, or believe, can love be first for us as well? 

Again & Again

We are reformed

March 21st

10:00 AM

Again and again we are being reformed. The process is uncomfortable, but the status quo is untenable. When change happens with us, what will take root and flourish?  

Again & again

We Draw on Courage

March 28th 

10:00 AM

Courage is deep within each of us; drawing on courage is both external and internal. We often find it when we need it most, when everything else has been stripped away. 

 

Again and again, we take heart amid the drama. The script is unsettling but we have not yet reached "the end"  

Again & Again

We are Held Together

Maundy Thursday

April 1st

7:30 PM

Again and again, we are held together, even in our deepest grief and greatest danger.

 

Remember that, and believe. 

Again & again
