October 21, 2018 – Not Like Me – Week 7 – Scott Hodge

NLM TITLE CARDS2.002.jpegIn the seventh week of the series “Not Like Me”, Pastor Scott Hodge tackles the divisive topic of politics, and explains how a dualistic and polarized political system hinders wholeness and, in turn, the Kingdom of God. Through this exploration of our differences as well as our shared vision, we are challenged to let our politics be shaped by Jesus, not our Jesus be reshaped by our politics.

SUMMER VOICES TITLE CARDS.005.jpeg

This summer, we’ve been hearing from some great voices, and this week is no exception as we hear from our very own Anna Hammond. Anna talks about the radical love of hesed found in the story of Ruth and how we can draw inspiration from the spiritual imagination and love used to right a broken situation. When we read these stories and experience them with open hearts, our perspectives can shift about the broken situations in our lives too.
