A Portrait of Inner Beauty - Expressed in our love.

Galatians 6:14-16 A New Creation
1 Peter 3:3-4 Inner Beauty
Luke 6:12-31 The sermon on the plain

 How do we define what is beautiful and what is not? The arts cause our hearts to open and in a world dominated by information and rationalization and scientific pursuit we have been trained to turn off our hearts and simply rely on our intellect.
How do we see beauty in others if we spend our time looking at screens? How do we come to love each other if we don't allow ourselves to feel a connection? Art causes us to engage on a different level and when our hearts open we see the beauty of all creation expressed in each other. listen .view

Seeing With New Eyes

Scripture:

  • 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 There is a new creation

Sermon:

Seeing With New Eyes
Paul's talk of "New Creation" focuses on the transformed vision. To see Christ and to see one another no longer in the flesh, but in the spirit. The New Creation is not one thing changed into another, like remanufacturing. It is the transformation of the perceiver who, in Christ, comes truly to see Creation anew. What do you see when you behold the New Creation in Christ?
