Kevin begins a Summer series entitled, "Road to Restoration." This weeks features an interview with musicians, Angela Vicente and Jens Kuross (our two person worship team this week) about the rules of music. He then gives a short message on what the religious "rules" are meant to lead us to. Finally, he interviews Dana Turner on her real life story of following the rule of love.
Pastor Kevin talks about two parallel, but opposite biblical stories which teach us about the human condition and the way forward past tribalism and mere tolerance to true unity in diversity and love.
Pastor Kevin interviews Rachel. She shares her story of being in the process of healing. Kevin then shares a powerful message about shame. Jesus is our Lord, but he does not choose to call us servants. He calls us His friends. Once we realize that the God of the universe finds us worth befriending, it changes everything.
This week Pastor Kevin shows how Jesus broke down our illusion of seperateness. We are all intertwined and interwoven. It's only when we are together that we can bear the fruit of love.
Pastor Ruben reminds us in this season of Easter that the resurrection of Jesus initiates in us a new identity as God’s beloved. In this new identity, let us walk in love and kinship and let us experience everyday resurrections as we join God in making all things new.
