Welcome to the house of the Lord! In this season of Lent we consider what true power is. We live in a society where power means the ability to coerce; to get others to do our will. We believe that force can save us. The force of the strongest seems to be in the natural order of life; it’s what works. But Jesus shows his power by submitting. Instead of “making” us obey him, he died for us. Thus, we obey out of love and not fear. If someone rescues us, they carry us to safety. But Jesus saves us, by dying in our place, giving his life for ours. We remember Jesus’ sacrifice through our worship and by the way we live. We are glad you are here today and invite you to join us. Please see the minister or one of the elders if you have any questions about us.
