Worship With Us – May and June

9am WorshipDuring the month of May, we will conclude our sermon series “Grounded: Finding God in the World” and begin a new series entitled “Not in God’s Name,” based on Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’ book Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence.  Living in an age of religious extremism and violence, we will explore its supposed biblical roots to find that “to invoke God to justify violence against an innocent is never an act of sanctity but sacrilege.”  The God we worship in Jesus does not condone but rather grieves for those who use violence for said religious reasons… “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
