Celebrating from the Bottom: Sermon, November 1

Failure can be a friend! suggested Pastor Jenny Smith Walz on November 1, 2020. As in science experiments. But sometimes it is time to let go…God loves choosing the wrong people….Forgiveness is foundational.

Tune into her sermon on this web page – look for “worship” and page through the dates for November 1.

Here are some of the resources that Pastor Jenny mentioned or was inspired by.

Philippians 3: 7-4.1 Philippians 3: 7 and 8: For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but one that comes through faith in Christ,[a] the righteousness from God based on faith.

Holy Troublemakers and Unconventional Saints by Daneen Akerset is a book for children that Evangeline Burgers has used in her ministry.

Rumi’s poem, “The Guest House”. 

A Kids Book about Failure. By Laymon Hicks. 

Pastor Jenny has referred to books by Brene Brown, and Brown’s Rising Strong. ,deals with the subject in much more depth.

And then that wonderful hymn, For All the Saints…
