The Extremist and the Cross Dig deeply into the richness of our faith every Sunday mornings in the Worship Arts Center. Martin Luther King once said “Jesus Christ was an extremist for love, truth and goodness, and thereby rose above his environment.” Are we in need of an extremism centered on the cross in our own lives today? Our current series promises to open up the great paradox of the cross, awash with both sacrifice and victory, allowing us to see the most significant event of all time through the facets of foolishness, obedience, suffering, abandonment and victory.

These pictures inundate us constantly through news outlets, popular culture, and our very own homes. They are pictures of conflict. It seems our best hope is to bury our head in the sand and distance ourselves from such negativity. But Jesus tells us “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." (Matthew 5:9)
