Summer Refreshments with the Christian Bible Part 8-The Apostle Paul and Spiritual Evolution (8-19-12 Celebration)

As we continue our "Summer Refreshments" series, we move away from the gospels to the book of Acts and look at the ministry of the Apostle Paul. Pau's message evolved as his established beliefs were confronted by new possibilities and challenges. How does this compare to modern theories of spiritual evolution?

Message and Meditation by Rev. Greg Coles
Musical accompaniment by Heidi Bethune

Next week: we conclude our "Summer Refreshments" with a look at the final book of the Christian Bible, the Book of Revelation, also known as the Apocalypse of John. What message can a book written for the people of its time possibly have for the people of today (hint: not what you might have been told)? We invite you to join us and find out for yourself.

Summer Refreshments with the Christian Bible Part 6-Upon This Rock-Core Values Sunday (8-5-12 Celebration)

Jesus said to the disciple Simon, "...upon this rock, I will build my church." One way of interpreting this verse is that Jesus said he would build a spiritual community on the solid faith that Simon used to discern that Jesus was the Messiah.

In a similar fashion, we are building a spiritual community on solid core values. We invite you to join us as we remember those values and the recipients of the first "Core Value Stones" recognize a new community member who expresses that value and pass the stone on to them.

Message by Rev. Greg Coles and community members

Meditation by Rebecca Dunn

Next week: We invite you to join us as we continue our "Summer Refreshments" series. Jesus said he would build the church "Upon This Rock," which we interpret to mean he would build it upon the kind of faith demonstrated by Simon (later known as Peter) when Simon correctly identified who Jesus was. We will look at the "rock" of core values on which we are building our spiritual community.
