4.26.15, Why do I live? How do I live? Charles Gabriel

Embedded in Tolstoy’s novel, War and Peace, are the two main questions of religion:  why do I live? and how do I live? Charles will share why he believes the search for how to live, on its own, is fruitless and “Why I live” is best discovered by living a meaningful, spiritual life.

Charles Gabriel has been an active member of USG since 2004, including service on the board of trustees.  He currently sings in the USG choir.  This is the sixth sermon he has delivered at USG.

4.12.15, Oh, The Places We’ll Go! Rev. Kent Matthies & Tom Ott

Dr. Seuss wrote, “ Congratulations!  Today is your day.  You are off to great places! “  On Stewardship Sunday, we gather to celebrate that when we make promises of support – including financial – to the church we go great places.  What if we commit boldly?   Thinks of how many lives we can touch with compassion, service and empowerment!

4.5.15, Easter: Reclaiming Paradise, Rev. Kent Matthies

Whether you believe in the literal resurrection of Jesus, or not, Easter provides a powerful truth about the possibility of surviving and living on – transformed.  Easter calls us to the deep, abiding Christian commitment for creating paradise on this earth – here and now.
