A Generous Legacy
A Generous Life
- Sermon Series

November 17/18

Speaker: Ian Trigg

Scripture: Mt 25:31-40

In case you are feeling some “generosity fatigue” you’ll be pleased to know that this will be our last weekend dedicated to this theme! But I have deeply valued and enjoyed our time reflecting on what a generous life looks like, and I trust you have as well!! I was blessed to have a wonderful breakfast with our former lead pastor, Steve Elliott, this morning and he reminded me of a quote from Simone Weil who said: “giving someone your attention is the highest form of generosity.” 

We talked about becoming world-class “noticers” of others a few weekends ago and we’ll revisit that theme a little this weekend as we move from noticing family to noticing the most vulnerable in our world. Darren and Minako Polischuk will share a little from their Cambodian journey and together we will reflect on what it means to care for the “least of these” as we think about our legacy in life. I hope you will be able to join one of our services as we reflect one last time this year on what a generous life looks like. Spoiler alert: it’s looks really beautiful and sacred.

Be blessed this weekend!

People Matter

Sep 15/16

Speaker: Ian Trigg

Scripture: 2 Cor 5:11-21

It doesn’t take too much insight to discover the reality that Jesus truly loved people. Whether young or old, Jew or Gentile, sinful or sweet, Jesus constantly responded to people with remarkable compassion and concern. He taught that the most important thing in the world was to love God, and he followed that teaching with a call to love neighbours passionately and intentionally. In a world fascinated with The Self, to care for others requires a deliberate decision. We must constantly work to change how we see others in the light of Jesus’ teaching.  That’s what this weekend’s Taste of Foothills is all about. The Foothills Way is that people matter to Jesus more than we could ever begin to imagine. How we can allow that value to shape the way we live, the way we treat others, the way we view the world? There will be good food to enjoy and even better opportunities to connect with ministries that are changing lives and destinies. It will be a great weekend!  Can’t wait to see you all here!  Stay warm!
