Pentecost Sunday – Wear RED!!!
Face to Face Sermon Series
When Jacob wrestles with God in the Jabbok River, the writer tells us he meets God “face to face.” We often think of sacred moments as peaceful or quiet, but that’s not always true, and it certainly wasn’t true for Jacob. Meeting God face to face is hard and messy and conflicted, but it leaves us transformed.
Throughout the summer, we will hear sermons from congregation members who have met God face to face and experienced transformation. Grappling with illness, finding meaning in a life of service, encountering the brokenness of the world and deciding to do something about it – the challenges of life hold within them such tenderness and such possibility. In June we look forward to hearing from: Participants in Opportunity St. Paul (June 16), John Slettom (June 23) and Rev. Dr. Cornell Edmonds, Interim Pastor at Church of the Covenant (PCUSA) i& ARK Peace Builders (June 30).
Inspired by the blog Humans of Minneapolis, Molded is a storytelling project, by YASC Intern Maria Soroka, that seeks to discover how life experiences helped “mold” MPUC congregation members into who they are today. This display will be in the social hall until June 23 so you can read the stories of 18 of our members.
