Sunday Sneak Peek

Dear Sinners and Saints,

We worship a risk taking God. When God created the universe, God took risks by creating a world endowed with freedom. God didn't make automations. God gave us freewill, which meant God risked our rejection, and risked our refusal of righteousness. And God continues to take risks by forming ever more complex structures of organization. The unfinished nature of creation, and God's invitation to us to join the continuing creativity of the divine, means that God also must endure the risks of our creativity.

"Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say- Father save me from this hour? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour." (John 12:27)

We indeed worship a risk taking God. God's own son Jesus faced off with his troubled soul and went to the cross for you. Jesus risked his own personal comfort zone and life for you!

What fears have you prayed through this week to grow your trust in God? For fear is a threat to risk. A life without risk is a life that cannot grow. Your God calls upon you to risk in Jesus' name so that the Kingdom of God might be expanded.

Let us gather together Sunday, at the feet of this wondrous risk taker of a God named Jesus the Christ.

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
