    A Dangerous King
    This Sunday we celebrate World Communion Sunday. We proclaim that Jesus is King of the
    whole earth, and that His Kingdom extends over the entire world. As King of Kings, Jesus
    is dangerous: to evil (for Jesus defeats evil), but also to us! He does not leave us as we are,
    but the Lord of our lives, He calls us to change and grow as He desires.

    and failures. We look to a New King, King Jesus, who brings us victory! We need not get

    “Always Winter, Never Christmas”
    This Sunday we begin our fall message series, exploring how Jesus is our King. As we don’t understand monarchs very well here in America, we’re turning to the world of Narnia (constructed by C.S. Lewis in his Chronicles of Narnia, particularly in the movie adaption The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe) and its lion king Aslan to see how we can relate to Jesus as our good and mighty King. For our first Sunday we’ll see how Narnia’s perpetual winter teaches us about our human condition and struggle. We need a Savior-King!

    We end our series on Daniel with his most famous story: Daniel and the lion’s den. It’s pretty
    dramatic, but we’ll discover that once again, this story really isn’t about Daniel at all!
    Ultimately, it’s about us, and what we will do with God. Will we stand WITH God, no
    matter what? We’ll be listening to the Holy Spirit to hear what we each need to do to stand
    steadfastly WITH God.
