Good Question – A Sermon Series for Summer 2020
People today have questions. Including questions about God, faith, Scripture, and Christian community. During the summer months, the pastoral team here at St. Catharines United Mennonite Church plans to preach a sermon series based on questions that have been submitted by you.
These can be questions you have always wondered about, but were too afraid to ask. Questions you’ve wanted to ask, but feel embarrassed about. Questions that you feel everyone is struggling with right now, or questions that you like you are the only one wrestling with. Questions you might feel are silly, or questions that scare you. Questions that have caused you doubt, or questions about things that confuse you.
We are looking for questions from our wider, local community – from family and friends, classmates and coworkers, neighbors and strangers. From anyone.
If you consider St. Catharines United Mennonite your church home, you can offer a suggestion, but the hope and the invitation is that this might be an opportunity to ask someone else what their question might be, and then pass that along, or invite them to think about it and do so themselves. Start a conversation. Mention the series. Send or post the link.
While we welcome opportunities to connect, questions can be submitted anonymously – either by returning the postcard you might have received, or through our church’s website. No one will ever be identified, and there is no expectation that you attend a service. You can simply follow along and listen in to the series online, if you prefer.
People today have questions, and we want to hear them. Suggestions will be received and reviewed by our worship planning team. We recognize that we won’t be able to respond to everything, in sermon form. And we certainly don’t claim to have all the answers. The Christian life is a pilgrimage of faith, not a project of certainty. All the same, we believe that we can grow in understanding and grace. We want to hear from you, humbly and prayerfully offering what we can, as we engage the conversation together.

“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And yet these three remain: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:12-1
