Summer Sermon Series: A Beautiful Mess
When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own and share our stories, we get to write the ending.
Our spiritual journeys can be and most likely are messy but with beautiful discoveries. Sacred encounters often happen in the midst of the unexpected and even unwelcome moments of our lives. This summer we’re going to explore and share our spiritual journeys and explore sacred stories of biblical characters from the Old Testament. It was often in the midst of the messiness of these characters lives that they encountered God and themselves in a new beautiful way.
