Standing Tall

Pablo Picasso famously said, “Everything is a miracle. It is a miracle that one does not dissolve in one’s bath like a lump of sugar.” But some things go beyond our current understanding of how the natural world operates. And when supernatural events occur that bring hope, healing or joy, we call them miracles. Through this series, we examine some of the accounts of Jesus’ miraculous interactions with people, nature, and even objects. We look at the impact of the interaction on the characters in the story, and how they made sense of what was happening. We study Jesus’ own words about what these miracles meant, and reflect on how they might impact our lives today. In this third week, we explore the story of Jesus healing on the Sabbath a woman bent over.

Our Vision

Imagine a community …

… that dares to dream of heaven on earth; a community where everyone is accepted and respected and their journey cherished, regardless of their background, beliefs or place in society; where everyone looks out for the concerns of others and no one is alone.
