text : Colossians 1: 15-20
theme verse : “... and through [Christ] God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven...” (Colossians 1:20)
In our day, there is a growing distrust of many institutions, especially among younger generations. But whether you like them or not, we are all deeply imbedded in any number of institutions and their practices. Jesus was often found calling into question the motivations and meanings behind the practices of the institutions of his day, but he also points the church towards institutions of our own. Join us for a faith-full reflection on institutions (social structures that sustain a particular way of life) and their practices (activities that presume and inform a certain way of life).
