Next: Witness

Next: Witness

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
– Jesus (Acts 1:8)

“Witness” means many things. It is something we do—we witness things that happen. It is something we share—we speak of what we have seen or experienced. It is something we are—we are witnesses. What do people see when they look at us? What do they see when they look at our church? What kind of witness do we share and embody? This year Foundry will explore and practice our call to be Christ’s witnesses, to look for Spirit’s activity in all areas of our lives, and to seek deeper integration of our words and actions. In this challenging time of transition and uncertainty in the history of our denomination and our nation, the call to see Christ and share Christ and be more like Christ as persons and as a congregation seems particularly urgent. What is next for Foundry?  WITNESS.

 Lenten Season Sermon Series: 

All Your Heart

“Return to me with all your hearts.”

- God (Joel 2:12)

“Where you invest your love, you invest your life.”

- Awake My Soul, Mumford & Sons

 

It is hard to be a Christian in America. Kin-dom values and “American” values don’t always line up. The secular economy of earned interest and God’s economy of grace are in constant tension. The commandment is to love God with our whole being—with all our heart. But our hearts get pulled in so many directions. Temptations and idols and pressures abound. The season of Lent is a time for us to take a hard look at the state of our hearts, to be honest about the difficulties in following Jesus, and to seek to align our values, our hearts and our lives with the Kin-dom vision that promises liberation and fullness of life.

This sermon series will run from Ash Wednesday, March 1 through Easter Sunday, April 16.  More information will be posted here as it comes available.
