Living the Jesus Creed: Loving God. Loving Others.
Love Your Enemies
This Sunday we are considering Jesus’ command to “Love Your Enemy.” I can’t help but think of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose life was threatened dozens of times over a period of a few short months and yet he sought to love those who tried to harm him. How did he do it? How can we do it?

On Wednesday we began the season of Lent. "Lent" is derived from an Old English word that refers to the lengthening of days during the spring season. In the life of the Church, Lent is an invitation to lengthen our reach, asking God to take a greater place in our lives as we anticipate the Easter celebration that will mark the end of the season.
As we have in years past, we plan to "reach" together during this season. Small groups have been organized and books have been purchased in the hopes that you will join us in this reach. We will be reading "40 Days Living the Jesus Creed" by Scot McKnight. It's a brief daily devotional reading that I believe will have great impact on our life personally and corporately. The sermon series will coincide with these studies.
