Upcoming Worship Series at LGUMC:  Passionate Jesus

Worship Series and Book Study: January and February 2019

The start of a new year offers us the chance to look again at our lives, our motivations and our most heart-felt desires.  In this series based on the book by Reverend Peter Wallace, we will explore what it means to follow in Jesus’ footsteps by living authentically and passionately.  The Gospel of John describes Jesus as one who was “deeply moved.”  He was not calm, cool, collected or distant.  Instead, he embraced life with the fullness of body, mind and spirit.  He allowed himself to be moved and changed by the people he encountered and the experiences they shared.  Over the course of 6 weeks, we will explore how Jesus expressed love, anger, fear, grief and joy with passion and clarity.  Learning from Jesus, we can reclaim our own capacity for passion and wholeness.

For those interested in reading the book along with this series, The Passionate Jesus: What We Can Learn from Jesus about Love, Fear, Grief, Joy and Living Authentically can be purchased after worship services on January 6 and 13.
