Is Christ Divine?
By Maryann Blackhart

Trinity on the Hill’s Generations series continues this Sunday, Oct. 27 at 6:07 p.m., starting with a free dinner at 5:15 pm in Kelly Hall. We provide free daycare, too. Our special guest musician this week will be dulcimer player Jonathan Dowell. Come join us for insightful worship, great food, and fabulous live music!

In our last service, Laurie Triplett started our series theme of “Who is God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit? And how can we follow God and not fall into the Performance Myth?” God is the creator of diversity. Laurie mentions in Genesis 1:31 that God sees His labor and that it is good. We are all His creation, part of His labor, and we are good. There has been so much stress, turmoil, darkness lately. “Just like darkness is the absence of light, evil is the absence of good” (Laurie Triplett). In the midst of turmoil, see the good around you, not the absence of it. God is good, and He has provided abundantly.

God is three-in-one. He is community through the Holy Spirit, as God created us to be. When we are apart from others and from God, a feeling of sadness and loneliness occurs that causes us to separate. We are called to love God, love ourselves, love others, and love our community. Come join our community at TOTH.

Mother Alicia Pope continues our theme this Sunday. As she says, “There are a lot of views about Jesus and His identity. Some wonder if it is even important to believe that Christ is divine and human. Why can’t He be just another great human being, spiritual guru, teacher, and prophet? What does it matter if He is divine or not divine? This teaching will cover why the question Jesus asks his disciples, ‘Who do you say that I am?’, is so important, proof that Christ is fully divine and human at the same time, as well as how Christ’s divine nature changes lives today.”

Your heart and soul will soar when you hear our special guest performer, Jonathan Dowell. Some of you may know him from his performances at De Colores or Pajarito Brew Pub. This National Mountain Dulcimer Champion started with Generations as our drummer. He plays all over the country, and we are blessed to have him come back at Generations to play with us! Jonathan will be playing during service and will be giving us a special short concert afterward.

Some of you may wonder “What is a mountain dulcimer?” It is an American stringed instrument with frets and a long, narrow resonant soundbox that Jonathan plays on his lap, making the most glorious sounds–such a treat to hear! Our upbeat music this Sunday will sing to your soul.

May our community at TOTH become your community. Join us and Rock the House of God!
