Why Jesus? – Worship on September 7, 2014

Sunday, September 7, 2014

Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. Matthew 4:23

Why would anyone want to go to church? For that matter, why should they? Why would anyone spend time considering Jesus, the claims he makes for himself or the life he lays out for us? Join us all month as we ask “Why?”

Life has changed a whole lot since 30AD… but then again… has it? People we love still leave our lives too soon. Community still lifts us up. We are still inspired by people with vision, compassion, and integrity.

Maybe there are some answers, or at least some helpful questions, that can give us some direction. Join us for the adventure…


Scripture Lessons: Matthew 4: 13 – 25 and Acts 2: 22 – 36

Message:  Why Jesus?


Rachel Fraumann

My personal mission is to translate the life and teachings of Jesus to the next generation of peace and justice seekers in and around Burlington Vermont. I’m always up for a friendly argument, a free hug, or to be available as a compassionate ear or shoulder to cry upon. I have an insatiable curiosity for ideas and love to talk about theology, religion, politics, science, or whatever is on your mind. My current passion is about peeling back the centuries of church tradition in order to find the root of our faith in the teachings and ministries of Jesus so that it can be put into practice. After fifteen years of professional ministry with young people I still love watching a newly empowered Child of God set out to change the world!
