Refreshing Practices for a Conflicted World
Swimming Upstream: Being a Healthy Church in a Time of Sickness
Over the last two weeks, our church has considered how formative our culture is on us as Christians. Due to the fact our culture celebrates "the radical self," we need to "swim upstream"; or, in other words, reject conformity so that we are able to be transformed into the likeness of Christ. In our third vision sermon, we will learn how how such counter-cultural work is exactly what our world needs from us as a church and how this work gives people a taste of Jesus' living water as we proclaim Him. We will learn how to relate to our neighbors with refreshing practices that undermine our divisions.
