A Sacred Home, Lent 2018

Home where we are imperfect and lovedEdmonton got a decent amount of snow between Friday night and Sunday morning so our worship was a bit more intimate than normal.  Instead of our usual Morsels & Stories we started with a really interactive section.  I did my best to make sure the gist of the conversation got caught by the mic.  Thank you for your patience.

Sermon: Jesus has deep passion for God’s home.  What does home mean to us?  What does this mean for us?

The lessons for today can be found by clicking here.  I worked most closely with John 2: 13-22.
