“We shall not cease form exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” — T.S. Eliot
Summer Worship Theme, 2014
The summer of 2014 will be a special time in the life of Tabernacle Baptist Church. The congregation has unanimously voted to send our pastor, Sterling Severns, on a much deserved sabbatical of rest and renewal. He will spend the summer exploring and, in some cases, re-exploring those places he calls home.
However, Sterling is not the only one who will spend his summer exploring what it means to be “home” and, ultimately, what it means to be “home again.” As he goes, we will journey alongside him from afar as we, too, explore how home is so much more than a place. It is a great time to be a part of the Tabernacle family! We hope you’ll make plans to be with us throughout the Summer!
Home of Our Faith:
From Pentecost to the great stories of the early matriarchs and patriarchs to the homes and lands where we, ourselves, were raised and nurtured, the home of our faith calls us to look back to those many homes, biblical and otherwise, that have brought us to where we currently are and speak to the direction in which we find ourselves heading.
