The words of Scripture and the language of faith are "not too difficult for us or beyond our reach." We find instead that they are near to us, part of a love story that is sweet to tell.

To speak openly of our faith begins with admitting our vulnerability to sin, need for salvation, and the liberation that comes from conversion. Our worship and prayer help us to enact that goodness and salvation in our lives and world.

Learning to talk about our faith is rooted in our bodies and experiences, which reveal both our shared humanness and our different stories. Our human encounters with suffering can awaken us to our common need for each other and God, and call us to claim joy and love as an act of resilient faith.

Why are many of us reluctant to talk about faith, and why does it matter that we do? After we get in touch with what ties up our tongues, and recover a sense of urgency about why it’s important that we talk about God’s presence in our lives, we can learn to talk about faith in ways that are honest, vulnerable, full of wonder, wise, anchoring, and which connect with God's saving love.

Passage: Luke 9:51-62
Duration: 19 mins
As we again ask, "What are we, as EGMC, feeling called to release? What needs to die?" and "What are we, as EGMC, feeling called to cultivate? What is starting to grow?" We acknowledge the many distractions and commitments that can keep us from the path of Christ. Are we really ready to follow Jesus wherever he goes?

Passage: Luke 8:26-39
Duration: 26 mins
As we again ask "What are we, as EGMC, feeling called to release? What needs to die?" and "What are we, as EGMC, feeling called to cultivate? What is starting to grow?", we recognize the temptation to fear disruption and change, even in the evidence of Jesus' healing power. Those whose lives have been changed by Jesus, though, are sent to "declare how much God has done" for us.
