 Walk This Way: A  Sermon Series for Lent Inspired by the Path of Jesus

"For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength."  (1 Corinthians 1:25).  As we follow Jesus on his final journey from Galilee to Jerusalem, we will discover what Paul wrote to the early Christian communities; God's wisdom shows up in a life of extravagant vulnerability.  Each stop on this six-week journey takes us into the heart of Jesus' own human experience where we see the foolishness of God unfold.

Holy Shift!!  When Everything Changes

Seismic shifts happen in our lives sending people reeling into tailspins of anger, doubt, fear.  This is especially true when we don't see it coming.  It seems to come from out of the blue and we feel blindsided.  The gospel tradition speaks directly to these times; come and find out how.
