Here at the beginning of 2014, we welcome new and returning friends to our community. In the words of our Statement of Inclusion:
Eastwood Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) seeks to be a people of grace and welcome to all God’s children. We affirm the faith, baptism and spiritual gifts of all Christians, and we are glad to welcome into fellowship and service all people -- no matter what race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, physical or mental ability, economic status, political stance, theological perspective, etc. We celebrate that ALL are part of God’s good creation.
When Jesus said, “Follow me,” he set into motion a radical new way to live in the world. Years later, his mantra has been taken by many to mean, “worship me,” yet those are never words that can be found to have been said by him. To Rev. Dennis Jacobsen, the words were more intended to mean, “do as I do, follow me in my ways in support of those who live on the margins of life and against the systems that create injustice for so many.”
Beginning on November 3 we are starting a 4 week Sunday School group that will be reading Jacobsen’s book, “Doing Justice,” to understand his perspective on what he believes churches should stand for and how they should function in the community. His proposal is radical but one that he argues is the very clear message of Jesus.
Please join us for 4 weeks as we explore his book and discuss the possible implications of reimaging our own lives and that of the church.
