Arlington Temple United Methodist Church is a small, diverse community in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington, VA, and quite possibly the only church in the country located directly on top of a gas station. On any given Sunday at Arlington Temple you might meet grad students, homeless people, diplomats, and immigrants from around the world–just to give you an idea.
As Christians, we believe in following Jesus by being his hands and feet in the midst of this busy, broken world, wherever our daily lives may take us. As Methodists, we believe that salvation is a lifelong process of responding to God’s grace to allow it to make us more holy and more loving. Each Sunday as we close worship, I ask the congregation, “Who are we and what do we do?” And they respond, “We go out to be God’s people in the world.”
On this blog you can read the sermons I preach here at Arlington Temple each week. I love to help people think about the Bible and our Christian traditions in new ways. Of course, you are always welcome to come hear them in person on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am. Whether you are rich or poor, young or old, grew up in church or are just starting to wonder about this whole Jesus thing, you are welcome here.
