Not The Way of Caesar: Imagine Celebrating Weakness – KCRC Online Service for June 7, 2020.
Today we begin a new sermon series for the month of June. Rev Sid Ypma, Campus Chaplain at UOttawa will bring us four sermons based out of the early chapters of the book of Romans. We read from Romans 1:1-17 and from the Old Testament book of Habakkuk 2:2-5.
We will focus on verses 16 & 17 of Romans 1 and considering what Paul is not ashamed of. The gospel, as Paul is speaking of it here, is not just about Jesus dying for our sins, but the way in which God’s faithfulness is mediated through such a shameful and weak way…the cross.
Paul is not ashamed of this good news that it counter cultural in a Roman empire. When he quotes from Habakkuk, we get a deeper hint at what he’s challenging. Pastor Sid will also lead us in Holy Communion together. Please join us.

And, hey, once this COVID crisis is safely over, and live worship resumes (yes, we’ll let you know), we’d love to have you join us in person for worship.
We usually gather each Sunday at 10am.
Don’t worry about getting all gussied up. Just come as you are – we’re a church full of imperfect people.
And we’d be glad to have other imperfect people, like you, along for the ride! STAY TUNED – we’ll let you know just as soon as Sunday, in-person worship resumes.
