Series summary: One of the distinguishing features of this new Age, which is also, incidentally, what is required to save us, is the awareness that all three Abrahamic faiths worship the same God, even as theyâ€™re quite different from each other. There is only one way of life, therefore, that loves, worships, and serves this God. As Christians, we believe not what Jesus did uniquely, therefore, but revealed universally. His redemption is our only way to God our Creator and Sustainer. But he is not the only way.
This series will be led by representatives of all three Abraham faiths, two services a piece, helping us to journey to the heart of God by highlighting two understandings that are core to their faith tradition. Whether we devote two consecutive services to each faith or alternate between the faiths twice is an open question, perhaps having more to do with scheduling then the integrity of the flow. Also the order of appearance of each faith may change.

Journey to the Heart of God
October 22 – November 26
This series will be led by clergy of all three Abrahamic Faiths, two services each, helping us journey to the heart of God by highlighting two understandings that are core to their faith tradition. One of the distinguishing features of this Age of the Spirit is the awareness that all three Abrahamic Faiths worship the same God, even as the traditions are quite different from one another. Consider joining a journey group to discuss these differences and the revelations they share with us about God.
