If you’re looking for techno-savvy or a beautifully packaged spot – this probably isn’t it. But – if you want a place to gather and openly/honestly discuss Scripture and its relevance to our lives today – pull up a chair and come as you are, inside & out (feel free to invite a friend/neighbor.)

Week 1 (9/19)

 

Forgiveness, unity, identity and freedom take the lead of this week’s discussion. Paul encourages the Corinthians and us to see each other with unveiled faces, God’s glory revealed and the sweet aroma of righteousness coming from within – from our source: God our Father, the Spirit our strength and Jesus our Redeemer. Paul had lived his life (up to meeting & knowing Christ, his living Savior) attached to the Law, his “blameless ways his hope” (Job 4), doing in order to be okay with God. Until Hope personified (Christ) sanctified, transformed and revealed Paul’s, and our, identity as wholly loved, righteous, protected, at peace. In our identity as declared and determined by God, through Christ, strengthened and empowered by the Spirit we can embrace freedom and love and forgiveness as we walk alongside each other and ourselves.
