Bringing Christ's Love to Life
Our Reason for Existence
Come for worship with communion this Sunday, December 11 at 9 & 11am.
Advent Wednesday worship with communion this Wednesday, December 7 at 7:00pm.
A snippet from Wednesday's sermon:
As we talked about last week, light features prominently in the beginning of John’s gospel. Light is feathered prominently but it isn’t so much a literal light that John is talking about. All this talk about light is a metaphor, giving us a reference point to think about. John isn’t suggesting Jesus is a group of photons emanating from a hydrogen based fusion reaction with a core temperature of 27,000,000 degrees that originated 93 million miles away from Earth.
Instead, John is referring to a light that we can’t see. John is describing the experience of Christ. For example, when we come to the communion table, we don’t see the person of Christ but we do experience Christ’s presence. Unless, of course, we have 30 dozen things on our minds and a checklist that’s run amok. That can make experiencing Christ something of a challenge. But that never happens in Advent, does it?
That is, in part, what Celtic styled worship incorporates. Time to slow down a little bit and have some moments of silence to help us, to point us toward, the experience of Christ rather than any kind of knowledge of Christ.
There's more to the story. Join in the rest of the discussion on Wednesday, Decebmer 7 at 7:00pm or on Sunday, December 11 at 9 & 11am.
In the meanwhile, some questions to ponder:
Are you over scheduled during the holidays?
Can you name one thing you could unload for the season?
When & where do you experience Christ?
What is it that God is creating in Jesus Christ?
