ALL means ALL! PERIOD! All means you, you, you, and me, and yes….even you. Period! This emphasis on the period further highlights our congregation’s unconditional commitment to being a beloved community for ALL of God’s children. End of sentence! Full stop! What should be a simple, non-controversial claim, is unfortunately still not the norm. Society still struggles to a have shared understanding of how to peacefully thrive among complexity and difference. Unfortunately, far too many churches practice the very divisive harms that plague society. Christ calls us to be a counter cultural community that witnesses to a more loving way of existing in the world. Our concluding summer mini series will inspire us to embody that witness. Pastor Deontez will conclude the series when he returns August 20th at our annual Open and Affirming Sunday. To start the series we are joined by Tres Adames. He is no stranger to the Cross Roads community. He serves as director of PRISM Counseling, and is a pastoral counselor. This Sunday he will encourage us to love through differences. Come, let us worship the God whose Spirit welcomes us ALL. 

Tres Adames is a Board Certified Pastoral Counselor and President of Prism Counseling and Arizona Christian Counseling. Tres holds a Master of Divinity from Wesley Biblical Seminary and Bachelor of Arts from Asbury University. Tres is an active member of ACPE (the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education) and currently serves on the ACPE Psychotherapy Commission. Tres hosts and produces a podcast called “Ask a Christian Counselor” is also the host and producer of “Spiritual Care Today,” the official podcast of The Journal of Pastoral Care & Counseling.

This Sunday's scripture comes from 1 Corinthians 8:1-13
