Of the three ”persons” of our three-in-one and one-in-three God, the Holy Spirit is the most mysterious to us. It can be hard to pin down exactly what we want to say about the Holy Spirit. So, this morning, as we begin three weeks of thinking together about the Spirit, we take a deep look at Scripture, the experience of the earliest Christians, and how the church through the centuries has found ways to talk about the mystery in the center of the life of God.

Pastor Carol Breimeier
In a worship service focused on health and wholeness, we heard reflections by members of Redeemer who serve in health care professions. We also heard a brief reflection from Pastor Carol about the connection between wholeness and praise. Worship included an opportunity to receive individual prayer and anointing for healing.
We continue our message series on Life Together by examining the role of coaching in our life together. Coaches are called by God to help bring out the best in everyone by urging and encouraging, by sharpening each other, and by providing wise counsel.
This morning we’ll be looking at the dynamic of “leading.” What is leadership, anyway? What makes someone a worthy leader? What does leadership look like in a community that’s busy following Jesus? We’ll examine six key dimensions of what it means to be a leader.

Pastor Fred Nelson
This morning we begin a new five-week series called Life Together. In a culture where individualism is highly prized, Jesus calls us to a new and abundant life that is to be lived together. Why? What does that life look like? And within that new community life, how do we grow, interact with each other, help build up each other, and exercise leadership to accomplish the vision that Jesus lays before us? For the next month we’ll look at the dynamics of apprenticing, leading, coaching, and reproducing. But this morning we begin with the call to participation and the truth that, in the new community of Jesus, there are no Lone Rangers!
