Mercy and Justice ~ 2019

From the very beginning, God has revealed and affirmed that all people are created in His image. But as those guilty and corrupted by sin, we instead seek to form God into ours.

One of the clearest evidences of this is the way we lack love and compassion for others. Or worse, when we embody anger and hatred toward them. Author Anne Lamott once wrote: “You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”

Each year, we take the month of January to call one another to lives of prayer, awareness, and responsible action in the world. We begin the new year by calling our church to be people of mercy and justice in the world.

This year, in addition to hearing from local leaders on topics of mercy and justice, our short sermon series aims to equip us in current issues related to these themes. Featuring a book by Scott Sauls called “Jesus Outside the Lines,” we’ll take a deeper look at how the Gospel of Jesus Christ calls us to be people who love one another and pursue mercy and justice outside the lines of both our particular tribe of Christianity and outside the lines of Christianity altogether.

Plan to join us in January as we hear more on these important topics.
