Sermons from June 2021

Everyone dreams about their future. We hope for the very best. God does, too. God dreams for a time when we will all live in perfect love together, and each one of us has been included in God’s dream to make it happen.

Joseph and Julian (our storybook character for this week) are both leaders, and they’re both dreamers, too. Julian’s abuela responds to his dreams with support; Jacob responds to Joseph’s dreams with critique. Christian leaders know that the world will respond with both support and criticism; our job is to keep dreaming anyway.
