We conclude our final worship series of our interim ministry together with four New Testament stories that help us imagine new possibilities that we might discover on our new way home. The Journey Home is a powerful theme in scripture. The stories of homecoming a reminder that we often find our way home in indirect and unexpected ways. A reminder that it is impossible to return home the same way we left. This summer in our worship series, “A New Way Home” we’ll be looking at some of these stories of homecoming and wondering how they speak with courage and compassion, as guides and reminders for our own homecoming journeys this season into a new chapter in our own lives and the life of the church.
Sunday, Sept. 19, Rev. Peter Ilgenfritz will explore 2 Corinthians 5:1-5, “A House Not Made with Hands.” Where is our true home? How do we get there? What do we make of the language of homecoming in death?
