Sunday Service Baptism: Decluttering Home and Heart

Organizing Guru, Marie Kondo's new housecleaning and decluttering show on Netflix is all the rage right now. And is it any wonder? Many of us are neck deep in materialism (What Walter Bruggemann calls "the sin of our age") and we have a lot of things we really don't need. The New Year is also a traditional time to many cultures to clean, bless, and declutter our homes (and our hearts) and in that we are also called to reflect on why we are obsessed with stuff and why some of our neighbors are struggling to eat, homeless, and have very little. This Sunday we will explore Jesus' baptism (Luke 3:21) and reflect on the very baptism- like spiritual practices of House and Heart cleaning and de-cluttering. Join us for music, prayer, and lively conversation as we invite God to "Create Clean Hearts in us" (Psalm 51) as we get our houses and hearts ready for the New Year. I look forward to seeing you there! -Rev. Jeanne
