Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

July 16, 2023: “How Will We Live?”

God’s will is that every person experiences abundant life. Even still, discussion around this commandment is loaded for many reasons. In a time when gun violence and death is nightly news, how do we live out this call to value one another as beloved children of God? How do we understand this comment on Jesus’ terms and in light of the many moral and ethical questions we face?

This is the sixth week in the series, “Words to Live By: Ten Commandments for Today.” Pastor Susan Hagans’ message is based on Exodus 20: 1-13 and Matthew 5: 21-24, 38-48.

The 9:00 and 11:00 am worship services are available in their entirety on YouTube.

Here is a video from Resurrection UMC in Leawood, Kansas which shows our words can violate this commandment. We are posting it here with their permission.
