We are beginning a new series this week called, “Returning to the Promise.” In this "Gathered and Sent" podcast, we discuss what it means to say God is love and how we are called to be a part of God’s ongoing creative work of love in this world. In this time of pandemic, protests, polarization, and unprecedented and unpredictable natural disasters, how do we live out God’s love in our life and share that with others? And we explore the ultimate question, “Does God exist separate from love?”
"Returning to the Promise" is a seven-week series based on stories from the Old Testament. Often, we are told that the Old Testament is full of judgement, wrath, and anger. But the Old Testament describes the very character of a loving God who continues to return to the faithful promise of unconditional and ongoing love for all of creation. It is why we first ground ourselves in "God is love" from 1 John 4.
