A Summer of Questions

Summer has arrived! Summer means time on the lake, family vacations, and lots of warm weather. Summer also means a new Summer Preaching Series at Unity. Beginning this Sunday, June 12, we’ll begin a series that is based entirely on your questions. You may remember a couple of months ago I asked the congregation to...

Celebrating Pentecost

Years ago I read a book called Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect Of The Holy Spirit by a pastor named Francis Chan. The premise of this book is that the church in America has largely forgotten about the Holy Spirit. We spend a lot of time talking about Jesus and God but little time...

20 Years of Preschool

This picture is from one of the first preschool classes about 20 years ago! Tonight is preschool graduation for those children going on to kindergarten or TK. It will be a celebration of these students and their achievements. It will also celebrate something else very special. This is Unity’s preschool’s 20th year! For 20 years...

Year 1 Complete

I’ve recently completed the first year of my Doctor of Ministry program (only two more to go!). Now I take a break until the fall when classes resume. One of my commitments to you is to share what I’ve learned after each semester. I enrolled in two classes this semester. The first class was called...

Holy Week

What makes this week holy? There are two meanings for the word holy. One— sacred, hallowed. Two— set apart for service to God. We call the week leading up to Easter Holy Week because of each of these definitions. This week is sacred. Christians consider it holy ground when we immerse ourselves in the events from...

Character Study: Moses Part 4

What would it be like to stand in front of the most powerful person in the world, and tell them they’re wrong? That’s exactly what God asked Moses to do. He stood in front of Pharaoh, the leader of a superpower with one of the largest armies known to the world, and told him he...

Character Study: Moses Part 3

God decides to liberate his people from slavery, and he’s going to use Moses to do it. It turns out, Moses is less than a willing participant. In this well known story, God appears to Moses in a burning bush and tells Moses that he’s sending him back to Egypt to bring his people out...

Character Study: Moses Part 2

Moses lived in two different worlds. One the one hand, he grew up in the Egyptian palace. He was the adopted son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He was educated alongside the rest of Pharaoh’s children. Moses, on some level, must’ve identified as an Egyptian. On the other hand, Moses was a Hebrew. His parents were Hebrews...
