Recovering Our Why

September 10, 2017 – Kim Pierrot

What gives our lives value and meaning? What’s it all for? If we are honest with ourselves, even those of us who find hope in the way of Jesus sometimes have trouble answering that question. I am increasingly convinced that our “why” as individuals and as a community is to embrace and enact the deep goodness of the gospel (aka shalom). Isaiah 61 gives us a vivid picture of communal well-being and flourishing with the Spirit of God as its source. It helps us to imagine what it might it look like for us at Cap, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to incarnate the deep goodness of the gospel in our relationships, in our neighbourhoods, and in our vocations.

Extraordinary in the Ordinary: Death – the Story of Jacob

September 3, 2017 – Rod Wilson

All of life’s ‘ordinary’ experiences can be pathways to God. The patriarch Jacob, whose story we will be following this summer, comes to this realization in the middle of the book of Genesis. Awaking from a holy dream, he remarks: “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” (Genesis 28:16) This is my prayer for us this summer, that, like Jacob, we might wake up to our lives as having the possibility for encountering God in the midst of birth, eating, family, sleep, courting, marriage, work, conversion, sex, home, calling, dressing, finishing, and death. Today, Rod will speak on Death – The Story of Jacob.
