Nazareth Protestant Community
September 3, 2015- Welcome Back to Campus!
This year in Protestant Worship we will be exploring this question, "Why does it matter?" Why does worship matter? Why does money matter? Why does justice matter? Why does death matter? Why does rest matter? Other topics include war, sex, religion, spirituality, and more. We make decisions every day. And as people of faith we are constantly engaged in the non-stop task of weighing those decisions at the intersection of faith and everyday life.
This week we will be talking about community. Why does community matter? What does Jesus say about it? In the words of Mother Teresa, "If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other." If we belong to each other, then what? What does that mean for how we treat each other? What does that mean for how we live our lives in a society that constantly tries to push us away from one another, that tries to ostracize us from one another in a million different ways.
And finally, where do you find community? If you are searching for one, come and talk to me. Come to worship on Sunday nights. It might take vulnerability. It might take courage. But there is life in being in community. Let's seek it out together. We really do belong to each other.
