Sunday Worship Theme: Meeting Jesus Again - "Struggling with the Puzzle"

This 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: “Struggling with the Puzzle”
Scripture: John 6:24-35
Overview: Crowds of seekers, in search of Jesus, grappled with their questions about his difficult teaching. For seekers today, it’s helpful to know that even those who saw Jesus face-to-face still mightily struggled with the puzzle of life, and with the question of Jesus’ true identity.
Human Need: I need to figure out the great existential puzzle: What is the meaning of life?
Community Challenge: An invitation to solve the puzzle of life, and understand that the way of Jesus is the missing piece of that puzzle.
