Guest preacher Sam Johnson reflects on how we might deal with our various kinds of fear in light of the Gospel.
Like Jacob wrestling with the angel, we have to be brought to the limit of our powers to know and trust God’s. when we do, there is always deep blessing.
Questions arising from the Gospel text: where is God’s grace hidden in your life and the life of the church?
What does it mean that we are “children of God?” Maybe that we are born of God’s love, dependent on God, full of wonder. Maybe that we are just beginning, always growing. Maybe it means we are all siblings, and we belong to each other. I wonder…

The heart of our faith is not doctrine but Jesus’s companionship.
Christ doesn’t invite us into a “melting pot” but a realm in which we do not need to conform. We are loved as we are in all our diversity and differences.
