Preaching Text

The sermons in February and March will be based on the ideas in Jonathan Merritt's Learning to Speak God from Scratch. We struggle to talk about faith and faith related issues. Many sacred words have become so loaded with negative connotations that we avoid them. As a consequence we avoid conversations which could deepen our faith and the faith of others.  We miss the reality behind the word.  Each week the sermon will attempt to look  a word in a fresh way. Words such as God, pain, disappointment, prayer, confession, fall, creed, lost, and perfection.
