Emerge: A Metamorphosis Moment
The butterfly has long been a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus. In this series, we will consider the process of metamorphosis as a guide to examine our own transformations from cocoons and tombs to the unfurled beauty of all God calls us to be.
Coming out as people and as a church from what we have known into a new identity is filled with anxiety and unknowing. Emerging will take effort and surrendering to “the assurance of things hoped for” even though we cannot yet see what the future holds.
This series is a metaphor for our personal transformation as well as the process we are undergoing as we work to amalgamate with Broad View United Church.
