This Summer, no apologies!  Only Apologetics!

 

If you have even a passing encounter with the news these days, you might see a story in which one person says something that offends another person – or a whole group of people.  Whoever said the offensive thing may or may not apologize to the offended party.  Some people take pride in feeling that they do not need to apologize or say they are sorry. 

 

In this summer’s Sermon Series, “Why Church?” Pastor Karen and I are not saying sorry when we make the case for being the church, but we are being apologists – people who are seeking to make a loving argument in defense of the church.  We are not apologizing for being the church, but we are using the idea of apologetics to make the case for why the church is important.  You have already heard sermons on church attendance and finding real people at church.  For the month of August, we will be exploring how and why the practices of prayer, presence, gifts, service, and song in church makes a case for why the church has lasted for 2,000 years and where we see the Spirit leading us.

 

This Sunday, we will be talking about why the church prays together.  We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper and Sarah Murai will be offering her musical gifts.  See you in church!

 

Grace and Peace,

 

John
