The sermon series “Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time” is based on Marcus Borg’s pivotal book of the same name. The series explores our feelings about wanting a contemporary faith while simultaneously inviting a rigorous examination of historical findings about Jesus can lead to a new faith in Christ. Borg illustrates how an understanding of the historical Jesus can actually lead to a more authentic Christian life—one not rooted in creed or dogma, but in a life of spiritual challenge, compassion, and community.
Sermon Theme: “For the Life of the World”
Scripture: John 6:51-58
Overview: In a meal with his disciples, Jesus shocks them by offering himself—his own body and blood—as the source of eternal life.
Human Need: We have fear of our own mortality, as well as fear of abandonment, or not having basic needs such as food met.
Community Challenge: Jesus invites everyone to come and receive the living bread, broken for the life of the world.
