sawing during the sermonOne of the values of King of Peace Episcopal Church is relevance. This is because we, as a church, value preaching and teaching that is relevant to today. Sermons involve both digging deeper into God's Word to see what it is saying and doing as well as then applying those biblical truths to our daily lives.

The application part can take different forms. Today that involved two power saws, a board, glass jars, rocks and sand. All in an attempt to teach as Jesus' taught, using the things of our everday lives to connect us more fully to God. This works because we trust God to make the point real in our lives.
