our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God
our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves
our hope is that the best is yet to come
Join us this Sunday as we continue in our SCRIPT Sermon Series. Pastor Sam will be sharing the message:
“Prophets” based on Isaiah 6:1-13
We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.
EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.
We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.
We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.
EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.
We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.
We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.
EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.
Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.
We’ll see you this Sunday!
THIS SUNDAY @ EMBRACE
Prophets in the Old Testament were not necessarily “fortune tellers” or “seers”. They were God’s mouthpiece – servants set apart to speak bold and convicting words of God to God’s people. As such, they were not always popular and often times stood in tension with the ways and comforts of humanity as well as often times standing against the corruption and misguided leadership of bad kings. Isaiah is one of many prophets that God used to speak judgment against a nation that had taken matters into their own hands. In the call story of this prophet, we see that God does have a heavy heart for his people. God loves Israel but He must bring punishment upon them for their disobedience. Isaiah responds to God’s call – but with much trembling. To be the very mouthpiece of God is not easy work. How are the voices of the prophets still speaking to us today? Are there words of judgment that we need to hear in the 21st century?
