Good Friday
Encountering Jesus
- Sermon Series

April 19, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper

Scripture: John 19:1-30

On Good Friday the ways of God stand in stark contrast to the ways of humanity.  On this day the mystery of God’s wondrous love and power are displayed and suffering and death.  We will never fully understand the crucifixion but understanding is not the purpose of the day. On Good Friday we gather as God’s people to stand in awe and horror, in wonder and gratitude at the foot of the cross. 

Join us as we reflect on Jesus’ passion and gather around His table to remember and receive the gracious gifts he won for us on the cross.

Scripture: John 15:1-8

Who do you want to be when you “grow up?”  Not WHAT do you want to be, but WHO?  We all can think of others whose lives reflect God in beautiful ways… and we long for that in ourselves.  It is easy to get caught up in the “list” of things that we think we must do to make that happen.  Or to retreat into the attitude that it is all up to God. Ultimately God is the only one who can change us, AND in his grace he calls us to participate in his transforming work. .  We build space into our life for him to work, behaviours that embody all he calls us to, and practices that shape us in his image.  This weekend using the framework of a Rule of Life, we will be challenged to choose rhythms that help us to intentionally abide in Christ so he can transform us for his glory.
