If you were out of town last week or your were sick and didn’t want to inflict your ailment on others, if you can’t remember that thing that someone said a couple of weeks ago that made you think, if you want to check out the nature of our messages before you come to a worship service, below are links to sermons from the past several weeks.

Sabbath as Resistance

Authenticity: Prodigal Compassion

Luke 15:11-32

It requires radical safety & compassion for people to be their most authentic selves. People will not reveal their most candid selves if belonging & relationship are threatened to be removed. CANVAS is committed to being a place of prodigal compassion:

There is nothing anyone can say, or do, or be that would rend you unworthy of love, connection & belonging.

Radical Belonging

One of our most sacred tasks and callings as a spiritual community is to be a space of radical belonging: that every person can be Seen, Heard, Valued. That we would be a SAFE place for all humans: a place of friendship.
