During this pandemic we have been spending much more time at home. The lessons we are learning are often about what makes a good home. With so much time spent in their houses, this pandemic has caused many people re-think what kind of home life they want. What matters in a home? What makes a house homey? We will look at all these questions and more in a sermon series about Home.
July 5 - Our Home Sweet Home
We call America our home. On this July 4th weekend we will look at this land and consider its founders' bold new vision of a land conceived in liberty, and what that means for us today. As the dream outstripped the dreamers and kept evolving to include more people we continue to question how to make America the home sweet home we all want and need.
July 12 Home: A Place of Work and Wonder - Luke 10: 38-42
When Jesus visited the home of Martha and Mary he saw two very different personalities. They were in conflict with one another -- one a worker and one a dreamer.
