Current Sermon Series
Beyond Colorblind | KiNDRED 2020
April 19 – May 24
Jesus prepares his disciples to go to the nations. To make disciples of all nations. Literally (in the language of the New Testament) that means: 'all ethnicities.' To do this we'll have to receive the gift of our own ethnic identities, learn how to appreciate the ethnicities of others, discover how the good news overcomes and transforms ethnic prejudice and hurt, and to work towards justice that sets all people on an equal footing before a God who so loves the whole world he gave his one and only Son. After Easter three of Seattle's great churches will cross lines of ethnicity and culture to learn from Jesus: Damascus International Fellowship, Evangelical Chinese Church, and University Presbyterian Church. The early disciples of Jesus will set the curriculum. The conversation will gain perspective through a study of Beyond Colorblind: Redeeming our Ethnic Journey by Sarah Shin. And we will teach one another as the Holy Spirit takes us deeper into an experience of the multi-ethnic family of God in Seattle. An experience that will culminate in a shared celebration of the messy beauty of Pentecost. Join us. We can't be family without you.
