Sunday Morning Faith4Life Classes at 9:15am
Join us on Zoom each Sunday as we watch a film series, DRAWING ALL THINGS TO GOD: A 12 SESSION SERIES AROUND THE LIFE OF JESUS THE CHRIST—Jesus’ birth welcomed something greater into human form. Through the recorded accounts of his life, Jesus’ teachings pointed to a connected way of living in relationship to God, one another, our meals, our positions and possessions, and to the Earth. To people who find themselves detached from such things, who had exhausted themselves and their means, who had forgotten they were created out of the same vibratory frequency (voice) that birthed all things out of nothing (the Eternal), Jesus came with a message: Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly. Through this film series, we will just walk awhile together in our skins and see what comes through. We’ll hold space to feel our inborn salvation made available through the mystery of the Anointed One who came among us.
