Fall Sermon Series at Parkwood United Methodist Church

Fall Sermon Series at Parkwood United Methodist Church

“Christians today wring their hands over the church’s declining influence even as they become stuck in defending and protecting its traditions. Is there a way through this dilemma?” (Heath, backcover)

Using Elaine A. Heath’s book God Unbound and the Book of Galatians, we will begin to undo our limiting vision of God, to truly become aware that God is so much more than we can ever imagine. Each week, our sermon will follow a chapter from Heath’s book. Join us as we begin to understand the tradition behind our faith and how the church is called to step out in ministry.

Sept. 3 “A Unexpected Problem with Paul”
Sept. 10 “Loving the Tradition behind the Tradition”
Sept. 17 “Opening Ourselves to God”
Sept. 24 “Authority, Discernment, Call”
Oct. 1 “When Systems Change”
Oct. 8 “Responding to Anxiety in the System”
Oct. 15 “Guided by the Spirit”
Oct. 22 “Fulfilling the Law of Christ”
Oct. 29 “A Letter to the Church”
