This summer we are doing a deep dive into the letter to the Colossians. Through preaching and teaching, we will examine the different authorities that impinge upon our lives. Some of these authorities are obvious and some are more subtle in the unexamined assumptions we hold. Through the letter to the Colossians, we will consider what authority Jesus Christ brings to these other authorities in our lives. We will explore how the authority of Jesus Christ frees us from coercive authorities in our lives that we may need to question. Each week we will offer a sermon and a Journey class on a text from Colossians. The Journey classes will be held in the Chapel at 9:45am.
