Series: United Not Divided
Uniting with Pharisees & Bonobos
October 25, 2020 | Rev. Ramiro Rodriguez
Passage: Matthew 15:10-18
Our words and the way we communicate with and to one another can have a huge impact on the way we live in Christ’s unity or divide ourselves in unholy ways. Jesus was clear and spoke multiple times about how important it is that we watch what we say and how we say it, because we can destroy much of God’s creation (mainly other people) with the things that come from our lips. Dedicating ourselves to speaking, writing, and posting things that create unity instead of division is not just a good way to be as a human being, it is also the way Christ calls us as Christians to live.
Join us for worship as we continue in our series, "United Not Divided". This week's message, "Uniting With Pharisees and Bonobos", delivered by Rev. Ramiro Rodriguez, centers around the scripture, Matthew 15:10-18.

Finding unity in God’s unconditional love and grace allows us to be thankful for all of God’s children – even those who vote, believe, and think differently than we do. Christ insisted on unity of purpose, vision, and love no matter our differences. Let us journey together to find unity not division, to be united, not divided!
