This one long sentence in Greek has deep and complex meaning. On this Ascension Sunday, what does this letter to the Ephesians mean when it takes about Christ being the "head" and the Church being "the body"? Christ's ascension is a tenet of faith from which the church draws strength as well as a call to unity. What exactly is unity, dominion and authority? This week, Pastor Andrea Fluegel and Jack Palmer discuss this letter to the church in Ephesus. How does it help us envision the larger Church today?
"Heart of the Matter" is a seven-week series concluding with the Festival Day of Pentecost. Easter is not just a day. It is a whole season of time when we remember and celebrate that the Spirit of Jesus lives on in each of us. So over the next few weeks, we are worshiping and praising God as the early disciples (later apostles) did, in their homes with glad and generous hearts, breaking bread, and having the goodwill of all people. It is in this way, that we are connected. We are connected through the love and grace of Jesus. Worship script by Marcia McFee and Worship Design Studio.
