What Kind of House?

April 19, 2015


This is the last sermon in our series on membership, mutual accountability and belonging. The Spiritual Leadership Team began having conversations about membership last fall, and this worship series grew out of those conversations. Since you may not remember the first 2 sermons, let me just re-cap briefly what they were about. You can go to our website, if you want to read them in full. Dan’s first sermon was “Questions about Membership” in which he explored the various ways that people connect to Berkey, from non-active members to very active non-member participants. Membership is not biblically necessary, nor is it theologically necessary; it grew out of a particular culture and time and was a way to organize and keep statistics around who was connected to the congregation. It was created in a time when people were interested in stability.
