June Sermon Series: 

I Witness

Since September, Foundry has done a deep dive into various aspects of Christian witness. We explored Foundry’s values and how our practice and public witness aligns with those values. We were challenged to “testify”—to use challenging moments as opportunities to witness to our faith and commitments. Biblical prophecy was the focus during Advent as we wondered together what it means to have a “prophetic” witness as individuals and as a church. We journeyed together along “A Disciple’s Path” and looked at the concrete spiritual practices that form us as disciples and as covenant community. During Lent, we wrestled with “American idols” and sought to align all our hearts and lives more closely with the Gospel. Most recently, our “Soul Food” series helped us reflect on things that strengthen and nourish our witness. In this next series, “I Witness,” we will round out the year with a consideration of several issues related to how we think of ourselves in relation to others.

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
– Jesus (Acts 1:8) 

“Witness” means many things. It is something we do—we witness things that happen. It is something we share—we speak of what we have seen or experienced. It is something we are—we are witnesses. What do people see when they look at us? What do they see when they look at our church? What kind of witness do we share and embody? This year Foundry will explore and practice our call to be Christ’s witnesses, to look for Spirit’s activity in all areas of our lives, and to seek deeper integration of our words and actions. In this challenging time of transition and uncertainty in the history of our denomination and our nation, the call to see Christ and share Christ and be more like Christ as persons and as a congregation seems particularly urgent. What is next for Foundry?  WITNESS.
