NEW SERIES: Actions Speak Louder

As we move into the summer months, we will begin a new series called “God Sightings – More Than Meets the Eye.”  While this series will follow the lectionary, it will focus on where we see God at work in the world.  How can the events of our everyday lives inform our faith and how can our faith inform our everyday lives.  It will draw on the insights offered by the books Looking for God in Messy Places by Episcopal Bishop Jake Owensby, and God Sightings: the Creator Is Everywhere, a book of devotionals written by Macy John.  As Christian believers, it is necessary for us to examine our surroundings carefully in order to perceive how God is showing up in them.  Power, faith, transformation, and salvation often appear in ways we do not expect.  God’s work is radical, unusual, and often surprising, working behind the scenes and beneath the surface.  This series, drawing primarily on Paul’s second letter to the church at Corinth, focuses on the various ways that members of the Christian community are called to look closely and deeply at where, when, and how God works beyond our expectations.
