Worship Notes

"Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, 

and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe." 

Hebrews 12:28

John 15:12-17

“Taking Jesus into our world requires fully engaging both our faith and the world, yet few of us have learned to live a fully integrated life of faith and the world. Paradoxically…those who embark on this path will end up seeming both too Christian for their pagan friends and too pagan for their Christian friends.”

—Dick Staub

“This might be our best current opportunity for compelling, persuasive witness—to simply be kind to one another in Christ, especially across the lines of difference. To opt out of the modern culture of biting, devouring, blaming, shaming, and attacking in the name and for the sake of love.” 

—Scott Sauls
