the things we wear, part 7: curiosity - rev. nick coates

Jesus is asked over 300 questions and get this: he only answers 3 directly. The rest of the time he engages or asks a question back. That tells us something: to be curious, is to be holy. To be human is to be curious. To help us be people of curiosity, this week we did an Ask Anything Sunday and explored questions about the afterlife, God, and how we do what we do.

the things we wear, part 6: letting go - rev. nick coates

Whenever we see the phrase 'eternal life,' it's not talking about life after death, it's talking life before death. It’s talking about a life that's abundant, deep, and full.

This week we explore how one of the things Jesus says we need to do to enter into that life is to 'look at our knuckles' and ask: what am I holding on to that I need to let go of?

not in purity but in love - rev. chang-han kim

Challenging the Jewish purity system of first century Palestine, Jesus taught the inward transformation of faith; Jesus saw that any outer form of rituals and customs was the expression of the innermost mind. Jesus’ redrawn boundaries were not based on the system of purity but on the transformative power of love. In following Jesus, all people are included and welcomed regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
