• Right now, our world is very isolated, polarized, and fragmented. At worst, there's alienation and hostility -- especially everyday in our politics/headlines.  At best, there's superficial acquaintance-ship through social media, but an absence of deep acceptance and welcome of one another. "Hospitality" (especially if you Google it) only brings up hotel amenities and bed and breakfast ads.

     

    In contrast, we see the hospitality of God. He goes beyond our expectations of hospitality. His hospitality welcomes, embraces, and transforms enemies into adopted daughters and sons of God. How radical is that?! And this hospitality transforms us -- the church -- to be like Him and to do the same in our everyday. As one writer put it, Gospel-hospitality is a "radically ordinary hospitality" that is divine and yet lived out in our everyday!

  • Starting in August and taking us into mid September, we'll be kicking off our new short series on "Summer Psalms" where each of our pastors will be selecting a Psalm to preach through for each Sunday.


  • One of the main goals that we have for our series is that ODPC would learn (or re-learn) and experience their Christian life in a dynamic, holistic sense – rooted in your IDENTITY (“in Christ”), devoted to your COMMUNITY/THE CHURCH, and sold-out for God’s MISSION in your everyday.  Ephesians highlights all three themes, and it does so as one organic whole truth.  For Paul, this letter was intended to be read in one sitting.  And so, for the listeners of Paul’s times, they didn’t break it up into parts.  For them, life in Christ automatically meant growing with His people and living out a life of witness.
