The Gift of Sabbath Time

We reflect both on our God-given gift of time (what it is and what it’s for) and on the God-pleasing rhythm of time (working and resting, starting and stopping, and what particular “season” it is for us right now). Pastor Fred shares some reflections on the biblical book of Ecclesiastes and his hopes for his upcoming sabbatical leave, as he encourages each of us to ask, “What time is it for me, right now?”

Sins We Love: Judging

Pastor Carol Breimeier

As we continue our message series on Sins We Love, we consider a sin that’s a habit for many of us: judging. We judge others – often negatively. And we judge ourselves – also often negatively. Looking at the people around us, and at ourselves, with a critical eye has its satisfactions. But, ultimately, it damages our relationships, decreases our gratitude, and undermines our joy. We look to God’s word for guidance and liberation.
