Life in Christ Includes Praise and Lament
In an age of denial when difficult things are swept under the rug, we may resist the idea that God wants anything to do with suffering.
The greatest challenge of faith for most Christians is the moment of suffering, so I invite you to practice faithful lament.
If our lives are identified with Christ, disciples can name both joys and sorrows as dimensions of Christ’s story and purpose.
Like it or not, our lives include moments of sadness, grief, and betrayal that were very much a part of Jesus’ faithful journey.
We gather to worship with Holy Communion at 10:00 a.m. today.
Marked by transformation as clear and life and death (Romans 6:12-23), the disciple naturally embodies the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We gather to worship with Holy Communion at 6:00 p.m.
To the extent we are willing to acknowledge God’s presence in every circumstance, our faith becomes integrated and sustainable through a lifetime.
Though we may prefer to think of God giving us lives of joy and ease, a full life in Christ also includes sorrow and grief.
God Comes First
Before the God who is at once gracious and transcendent, we “lose” our lives and discover the true life in following the way of Jesus the crucified Son.
We can live in faithful relationship to the hair-counting God as we joyfully “acknowledge” the one who acknowledges us.
Trusting God means fear is defanged and faith becomes a sort of courage.
