Join us on a trip down memory lane as we talk about nostalgia, life transitions, the words of the Prophet Isaiah, and the New Thing that God doesn’t want us to miss.
Cindy Stover preaches on God’s eternally messy plan, making home in exile, and wait-how-did-I-end-up-living-in-downtown-Hamilton?!
We continue our study of the prophets and the time of exile by looking at Amos, who is super sneaky.
Kevin also talks about making his mother cry… twice.
Epilogue story is told by Anne Cumby.
Have you ever been asked “what do you do?” and had a little awkward moment? Have you ever felt like your life just wasn’t as successful as you hoped it would be?
Never fear! The sermon podcast from Eucharist Church is here to give you 10 Simple Steps To Success… Or more likely, to point out the ways in which the prophets blow the whole paradigm into little pieces.
Music led by Jeff Wynands, starts at minute 38.
Kevin tells us two stories of rejection.
In Luke 4, Jesus goes to church, is rejected, and nearly murdered.
In January of 2014, Kevin and Meg went to Vancouver, were rejected, and got a nice polite letter.
Two very different endings, but a similar question can be asked about both: how should we respond in a culture of rejection?
(As an aside, this was our first week in a new gathering space, so there are some veiled, and not so subtle, allusions to that fact)
(As another aside, the church planting group Kevin talks about is in no way affiliated with the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec/CBOQ, and do not reflect the values or blah blah blah of the CBOQ!)
