Inside Out and Upside Down: Jesus' Sermon on the Mount

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus dares to dream of heaven on earth, where love, justice, mercy and forgiveness prevail over hatred, fear and violence. We invite you to join us as we think differently, open our hearts and minds to new possibilities, and take on a higher consciousness as we consider Jesus’ teaching.

Awaken to Wonder: Surrendering to Mystery

We talk and sing about the incarnation at Christmas as if it was something obvious and prosaic rather than inexplicable and paradoxical. As we try to understand what it all means we invariably get to the point of realizing this is where rationalizing ends and surrendering to mystery begins. There is an extravagance—even a recklessness—to the love of God revealed in the Christmas story, which elicits the same kind of abandonment in response.

Scripture References: Matthew 2:1-23

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.
