One of our Unitarian Universalist ministerial colleagues has said, “I often like to think of us as the religion of ‘Why not?!’” At our theological core is a sense of openness, of making space for possibility. We have an expansive religion, easily able to hold many ideas, beliefs, values, at once, all as possible. As we close out one year, and begin another, it’s a good time to reflect on what’s possible for us. Rev. Matt Alspaugh will give the sermon and Dee Dee Camhi is the service leader.

Lake Chapala Baptist
Pastor John Linton did a yeoman’s job last weekend, delivering back to back sermons on Christmas day, a Saturday, and also on Sunday. Both messages hit hard and moved the congregation deeply, even when the Sunday sermon — all typed and ready on his tablet — somehow disappeared. This last little problem, “every pastor’s worst nightmare,” never even slowed him down, so infused was he with the thoughts he wanted to communicate.
“Every Christian,” he said, “is called to be an extreme and potent intercessor. We are called not to simply worry on our knees, but to pray without resting, like the watchman atop a high city wall, guarding the city from without and within.
“God is personally and intimately involved with every nation and household, and even with the unbeliever. Even when we don’t see His hand and it’s just ‘another wonderful day in Mexico, in paradise,’ God is still with us, never forsaking us… and that means never.”
Share thoughtful weekly sermons, uplifting music, and an ongoing thirst for true wisdom at Lake Chapala Baptist Church every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. Adult Sunday school 9:45 a.m., and Bible study groups Tuesdays, 10:30 a.m. Santa Margarita 147, Riberas del Pilar. Covid protocols are observed.

This week Associate Pastor Carolyn Hansen’s sermon is about Martha and Mary: Among Jesus’ closest friends—other than the twelve disciples—was a small family of adult siblings: Martha, Mary, and Lazarus. If you have brothers and sisters, you know they can challenge you more than anyone else in the world. Yet they can inspire love, loyalty, and (sometimes) spiritual growth, as well. These sisters loved the same lord. We can learn from both of these sisters, as they learned from each other.
In-church services are at 9:30 a.m. for the English language service, and 11 a.m. for the Spanish language service. All masking and social distancing protocols are in place.
