from Pastor Dave
Beyond our comprehension, we often call upon our imagination to arrive at images that somehow convey how we understand and experience God’s presence in our lives. We say that God, for us, is like a “Shepherd”, or a “King” or our “Refuge and Strength”. The Bible contains hundreds if not thousands of images for God, but we’ve mostly become fixated upon only a few.
In my sermon series, based on a book written by Episcopal Priest and author Lauren Werner, we will consider ways in which we meet God, which are in the Bible, but are often overlooked. This is no small matter. As we increase the number of ways that we can imagine God, if we consider and select our images wisely, we may find ourselves meeting God much more often, and in turn, have our lives transformed in ways we’ve never imagined?

Worshipping as a community makes us accountable to one another, supporting one another and growing together as we clothe ourselves in Christ and compassion. We are stronger when we are together.
