Does church make a difference? Does it have it applications in the real world? Is it worth your time even?
Consider yourself encouraged to attend our upcoming sermon series that – yes – will be worth your time.
This series is about how we walk – both physically and spiritually – and how that literally shapes us for the better.
I did not dream this up out of nowhere. It’s not a gimmick. It is rooted in real life, inspired by the lives and faith of engaged people who form Carleton Memorial’s Christian Development Group. It’s a group whose sole purpose is to think seriously about how we live out our values – from the way we express them to the way we put them into actual practice.
At CMUC – we believe that theology is where what is “above” and what is “on the ground” intersect. You might say that grass roots theology is a way to preach to each other by learning to really listen to each other. In this way – we journey together.
And the journey also spans time and space … The images that we will be using in our PowerPoint worship presentations are from my college friend Dieter Riedel. He has produced a collection of black and white photographs that he calls: Insomniac Theatre. They are middle-of-the-night glimpses of downtown Toronto – and the ones he is sharing with us tell a story all on their own. He has intentionally selected them based on this theme as well. He is very much journeying with us – and we with him.
This series will be a true mind-body exercise – as in exercising your spirit in the same way you would exercise your body or your mind.
So often, I see and hear people dismiss religion as nothing more than useless superstition.
This is your chance to discover there is another way.
CMUC – Come find the difference.
Be Blessed. Be a blessing.
Rev. Eric Lukacs
