“Renewal By Fire”

September 20, 2020 | 10:00 am

Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister

Online Only:

Today’s Topic:

Renewal can come from deconstructing what is, not only building something new. Historically, natural forest fires were a regular part of a forest’s life, and cleared out old dead vegetation bit by bit. However, if natural forest fires were prevented, then too much fuel accumulated and built into a big, catastrophic event. How do we know when deconstruction is necessary for the health of the system, or when a fire has too much fuel and will turn into catastrophe rather than renewal? How do we encourage natural health and balance in our own ecosystems at home, church, and in the world?

Worship Team:
