  • Living the Life of Gratitude – Lingering with God | Sermon from 11/22/2015


    Living the Life of Gratitude - lingering with God-web

    This month we have been using the Psalms of Ascent to teach us about giving thanks and no journey of gratitude is complete without setting aside time to reflect and say thank you. If we don’t slow down we can’t see all the blessings of life. If we don’t slow down we can’t hear the voice of God and God’s message of love and grace. If we don’t slow down we simply can’t give thanks and so we need to learn how to linger and there is no better place than to linger with God. Linger with God so that our hearts and lives are prepared for a true Thanks-giving.

    “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” (George Santayana) While remembering the past is important, it is learning from our history that makes the difference. Learning from our past not only improves our lives but it can lead us to gratitude and praise when we see the hand of God. We continue our journey to Thanksgiving and to giving thanks using the Psalms of the Ascent as our guide.

    Living the Life of Gratitude - listening to others-web

    Living the Life of Gratitude
    This week we begin a new series on gratitude taken from a series of psalms known as the Psalms of the Ascent (Psalms 120-134). These psalms were used by the people of God as they traveled to Jerusalem three times a year to give thanks and worship God. Within these psalms are lessons for us on how to become more grateful. This week we learn the value of listening to others and how this practice can help us appreciate all that God is doing in our lives and in our world. Join us as we make our own journey to Thanksgiving and learn how to live our own life of gratitude. This week we will explore Psalm 122 and 133.

  • Life Is…To Love Others – Sermon from 9/27/2015


    life is week 2a-web

    Life is to be loved and to know that we are loved by God, but the love doesn’t stop there. Once we accept God’s love for us, we are then able to love others, but loving others doesn’t happen because we work at it, loving others happens as we love God. To be more loving of the people in our lives and the neighbors in our world we need to focus not on them and not on us, but on the one who calls us to love – Jesus Christ. Continue to explore what Life Is.
