Lenten 2018 Sermon Series

"Dissonance"- a mingling of sounds that strike the ear harshly; a mingling of discordant sounds; 
lack of harmony among musical notes.

In every life, harmony and peace coexist with disharmony and conflict. They intermingle in our
relationships and in the larger world. Our Christian faith acknowledges the dissonance in life and
the power of sin and evil. Evil is that which seeks to interrupt the creative harmony of God's love
song in the world. We sin when we cooperate with the forces of alienation and destruction.
During Lent, we reflect on the reality of sin and the gift of confession using the parable of the prodigal son.
This classic story assures us that we dwell in God's grace even when we go astray. Join us as we discover
again the recreative power of God's mercy, love, and grace!

2017-2018 Theme

Faith Remastered

remaster -  to make a new copy of a musical recording or film with the sound or image improved

The master copy of a composition is the original version.  Now, with the aid of technology, musical recordings and films can be remastered.  Often the remastered versions reveal new depth, clarity, and richness of color and tone. Remastering enlivens enjoyment of classics by those who have long cherished them and makes them available and accessible to new listeners and viewers.

This year at Foundry, we will play with the concept of remastering as we return to the classics of our faith tradition.  We will examine the core teachings and tenets of Christian faith – stories from scripture, worship practices, theological concepts, and dynamics of covenant relationship. Together, we will pick up these powerful stories and practices, dust them off, and consider them afresh as resources for our journey. The language of music and melody will weave throughout the year as we deepen and renew our living faith.
