After spending Lent looking at how we can go “Deeper” in our faith, Two Rivers will spend the weeks after Easter seeing how God’s love reaches “Wider.” Faith in Christ is not simply about going deeper with your own personal journey, it must push us out into the margins. Christians must be about going into the wider world, and seeking peace among all people.
Shalom is the original plan for Creation, and God’s love is forever seeking to restore shalom. Over the weeks after Easter, Pastor Robb will examine how Shalom can reach families, races, genders, and even nations. Based on the book The Very Good Gospel, by Lisa Sharon Harper, the Scripture texts for each week will come from the book of Genesis, revealing that Shalom is a part of the plan from the very beginning. Our founding stories of faith are focused on Shalom.
