This week we hear from guest preacher Rev. Dottie LaPenta on the “deadly sin” of lust—what does it look like in the Bible and in our current day? Is it really a problem, and if so, what do we do about it? How do we talk about it?
This week we consider the role of envy in our society and how it affects our connection with God, our neighbor and all the good in life. In a world that runs on comparisons, what is the antidote to envy?
This week we consider the “deadly sin” of greed. How does it operate in our culture and how does it find its way into our day to day lives? If we understand it better, perhaps we can cultivate more compassion, mercy and generosity in our journeys with God.
This week we dive into our summer sermon series beginning with the “deadly sin” of Gluttony. We explore how this issue is about more than weight or food. How does Gluttony operate in all of our lives as a way to fill ourselves up with the easiest and most convenient things rather than depending on God to meet our needs?
This is an introduction to a new sermon series for summer exploring how the historic concept of the “seven deadly sins” can help us get to know ourselves and therefore get to know God in a deeper, more meaningful way. Each week we will examine one sin in particular and consider how it affects us, our culture and even the church!
