Susan Crowell: The Transformative Power of Grace

Tuesday August 22, 2017
In her sermon the Rev. Susan Crowell sums up Romans 12:1-8 with the word 'transformation.' Paul argues that in Christ, grace becomes the structuring reality in our daily lives. And Christ calls us to practice humility and sacrifice, to center our lives around grace, and in so doing God transforms us so that we can use our lives to transform the world.
