A Series to Get Us Through to Spring
Dec. 29, 2019 – Feb. 23, 2020

Read transcript

“Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” This line tucked into the middle of Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount seems impossible. What could Jesus mean by this? We’ll explore this strange idea this week, and in doing so learn more about what it means to be beloved children of God.

Matthew 5:20–48
That Word You Keep On Using

Our religious vocabulary matters, because it gives meaning to our life of faith. But some words we use (repeatedly!) can be confusing, or have evolved new meaning over the years. Today we examine a few of these words, considering what they mean to us.
