Topics of Sunday Services for February 2018:  

February 4: What Does It Mean To Be A People of Perseverance?

Rev. Laurel Liefert and Worship Associate Brenda Christiansen

 

Join Rev. Laurel and Brenda as we begin to explore the path to perseverance. Have you been strong too long? What role does balance play in being a people of perseverance? Alongside being strong, perhaps sometimes we need to admit we are tired and ask for help.

 

 

February 11: How Do We Practice Love With Perseverance?

Rev. Laurel Liefert and Worship Associate Kimberly Jeries

In this Valentine season with hearts lining the streets of Loveland, let us wrestle with the important question of how to practice love of all kinds with perseverance.

 

February 18: The Faith in Progress

Worship Associate Andy Carlson and Rev. Laurel Liefert

 

What does it mean to have a faith in progress? In the battle between Faith and Reason, didn’t progressives choose Reason over Faith? That may be true, but progressives require faith just as much as anyone else. For progress is not constant or steady; it is often two steps forward and one step back. So when we are in the middle of a step back, as many of us believe our country is today, it is easy to despair and conclude the whole notion of progress is a pipe dream not

worth fighting for. This is when we need faith. Faith that although the arc of the moral universe is long, and it is twisting, bumpy path, in the long run it really does bend towards justice‐‐ provided we have enough faith to keep fighting to make this a reality.

 

February 25: Pantheism and Panentheism

Rev. Laurel Liefert and Worship Associate Kim Skyelander

 

On this Sunday we will learn about pantheism and panentheism. Pantheism is a theological position where God and nature are considered identical. Traditionally pantheism has been rejected by Christian theologians because it destroys the distinction between creator and creation. This is not to be confused with Panentheism as it is understood in process theology. Panentheism posits that the world is part of God but does not exhaust the fullness of God. It is sometimes said that the Transcendentalists are pantheists with their emphasis upon the presence of the divine in nature. “Let man (sic) then learn the revelation of all nature and all thought to his heart; this, namely: that the Highest dwells within him; that the sources of nature are in his own mind.” Ralph Waldo Emerson in The OverSoul
