Today Pastor Heather takes a look at Matthew 9:14-17 and how leaning into the new can be challenging but worth that challenge.
In today’s devotion Pastor Heather will dig deeper into Matthew 25:1-13 on the parables of ten young girls and ask how is this parable reflective of how we make judgments and extend grace.
Pastor Heather explores Matthew 25:31-36 as the end of a conversation Jesus was having with his disciples when Jesus named the hypocrisy of religious leaders of their day and challenged the disciples to see Christ in the least of these. How do you see Christ in others?
Pastor Heather shares a few thoughts from the letter the apostle Paul wrote to the church in the city of Philippi. Philippians is a letter of thanks, encouragement, and a reminder to love well. Who are you thankful for?
Today we’ll take a look at Mark 8:22-24 when Jesus healed a blind man. The man at first only saw people like trees walking around, then his sight was restored completely and he saw everything clearly. We may not be physically blind but we can be spiritually blind. How do you see people? Like objects such as trees or clearly as divine children of God?
We are in extraordinary and terrifying times: 100,000 American deaths from COVID-19, over 6 million people contracting this disease worldwide, innocent men and women are being killed at the hands of the police force that is sworn to protect them, the stress of this is pushing our society to the breaking point.
At times like this it is not our place to give answers, Scripture calls us to mourn with those who are mourning, and to lament the sins of this world, the sins we are guilty of, and the sins we are complicit in.
Please join us today as we offer a workshop in conjunction with the National Day of Mourning and Lament.
