Flesh it Out
Jan. 4 – Feb. 23, 2020

The new year of 2020 seems like a watershed moment in our lives.  It feels like we are turning a corner, not just to a new decade, but a new moment in history.  Imagine the things planned and unplanned that are likely to occur in 2020.  Will we be active participants or victimized spectators? Will we embrace the journey or avoid it?  Are we prepared to “flesh it out”?  In Jesus Christ, God makes a clear choice to enter into our lives at a personal and integrated level.  We call this “Incarnation”.  Jesus is God joining us in the messiness, uncertainty, excitement and joy of our day-to-day lives.
