This week is Reformation Sunday. 506 years ago, Martin Luther made public his 95 Theses, calling the Church to account for abuses of power and ways in which it needed to be TRANSFORMED. We are living once again in an era of Reformation and Transformation of the church as we know it. We have been thinking together as a community about what values ground us as we journey together into an unknown future for our faith. And this week, Pastor Jessie is out of town, but she pre-recorded a dialogue sermon with Rev. Jennifer Barchi, a staff person of Baltimore Presbytery who has guided COA’s Session through months of discernment. Together, they discuss where we go from here, and how we can use our holy imaginations to live into what makes us who we are, and all that we are called to be together.
There is no PDF to read, but please watch and share thoughts with Pastor Jessie and Session Elders.
