This week we will begin a new journey. While we did not get to the end of the Acts of the Apostles or explore all of Paul’s journeys, we are moving on. Like people on the Exodus…..we’re moving forward. Seems like the theme for this week!! We, as Christian people are always on a journey. Yet so often we find ourselves stuck. Stuck trying to make the message of God relevant to our current society. We are often at the intersection of what is relevant and what is appealing. Somewhat of a CHRISTIAN CROSSROAD.
Which direction should we go? Who do we appeal to? What message do we use? Brian McLaren in his book THE GREAT SPIRITUAL MIGRATION reminds us that we should be a part of a spiritual migration back to the basic message of God that calls for conversion. That’s one of those “churchy” words that confounds insides and repels outsiders. So what do we do? Where do we go? Let’s see if we can’t get some answers on Sunday. Join us at 10:00 a.m.. ALL ARE WELCOME.
"By going back to the roots of the church we can see the ways the message has been distorted over the centuries and we can always be learning the true way for God in our life. Life gives us many opportunities at the crossroads to choose the correct path - even if that means a change in the path we have been living." - Debbie
"We learn something new about church every week. The Christian Story begins back with Paul & Simon & Lydia & Barnabus all all their travels and preaching to so many about the message. We are on a faith journey, knowing deep down which road to follow, as Jesus is our rock & guide. At a crossroad, we find comfort in knowing that God would be with us. God is always present.
Being here in church together is a stopping point for refueling. Yet it's still a crossroads. How can we know what's next . . .We can be on a mission, putting aside what's uncomfortable and keep moving!" - Penny
