Pastor Rob Burdette preaching.
This week I’ll preach from the book of Philemon, the only one of Paul’s letters written specifically to an individual, rather than a church. However, this letter does offer ecclesiastical direction for the Christian community which I believe was Paul’s intent. Imagine, if you can, the Spirit of Christ being in conflict with the status quo! Events of this week regarding the ordination of Theda Good may be a similar event being revealed in our midst. Paul is proposing that the church redefine the personage of Onesimus from that of a slave to that of a brother in Christ, giving him a new identity. I suggest to you today that this is the role of the church, that of shinning God’s light onto areas of darkness and misunderstanding while offering hospitality, healing and hope to the marginalized both inside and outside of our church home. Do you think Paul meant to challenge the very authority of Rome? Take a few minutes and read the book of Philemon, twenty-five verses. See you Sunday – Rob

Pastor Tory Doerksen preaching.
Sunday Pastor Tory will be continuing our worship series on “Home” through Psalm 51 and the story of Adam and Eve.  Part of the backstory of this passage is the Jews in exile in Babylon, wrestling with their identity as a conquered people in the middle of an empire demanding their allegiance.  This creation narrative in the Garden of Eden asks us to consider where our allegiance lies, and what we need to be at home.  Do we desire to rebuild Jerusalem?  What drove the Jews that decided to never return, but instead to be part of the Diaspora, spreading out into a religion apart from the Temple?  Where is home, and where is God’s home?
