Sermon Series: “Everyday Chesed: The Sacred Art of Lovingkindness”

Everyday ChesedDrawn from The Sacred Art of Lovingkindness by Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Everyday Chesed: The Sacred Art of Lovingkindness, Pastor David Felten’s Fall series will explore the Hebrew concept of “Chesed” (or lovingkindness) that was at the heart of Jesus’ teachings and ministry. With author Rabbi Shapiro, we’ll be asking,

“Will you engage this moment in kindness or cruelty, with love or with fear, with generosity or scarcity, with a joyous heart or an embittered one? This is your choice and no one can make it for you.” 

Through story, practical exercises, and words of wisdom, this series will explore how each of us can practice the sacred art of lovingkindness in our everyday lives.
