September 2, 2018 — Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

"Bored to Newness"
In the church we focus on time, space and numbers — how long does it take, what does our space look like and how many were there? are common questions we ask when we think about how we are to gather together as people of God. What if we used this short text from Acts — when Paul preaches so long that a boy falls asleep and falls down three flights--to consider two more important things: our words and invitations? Watch Rev. Ben's homily on altering our focus to what's truly important when we gather to glorify God.
