Reasonings

 

“Come, let us reason together.”
Reasoning: A coming together of minds to have a deeper understanding of
spiritual truths.

Past Sunday Reasonings are available online.

Come Let Us Reason Together.

Our Sunday messages are called Reasonings in reference to the biblical passage, Isaiah 1:18: Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord. 

This infers a co-creation experience and questions and discussions enhances the opportunity for spiritual growth.  We also appreciate the Rasta spiritual perspective that calls this co-creation process Reasonings to Understand (or as Rastafarians say, “to overstand”) the ways of God.
Questions are welcomed.

September 2018 Reasonings

Summer weather has arrived. Come walk our labyrinth and see our gardens. We have over 50 indigenous plants with over 120 different species on our grounds and our Indian pipes are sprouting.

Last month the Reasonings focused on four men in the Bible who taught us about courage, faithfulness and doubts. This month, to be fair to the women in the Bible and to a modern era woman, the Reasonings will focus on women who have shown great strength and wisdom.
