SERMON: Doubt and the Gospel of John
John tells us that he has written his story so that we might come to a full, true faith in Jesus as the Messiah and God Himself. But for many of us, we have doubts. This is not lost on John, and he presents a story precisely to help understand that moving through our doubt is the path of discipleship.

SERMON: The Language of God
We often breeze right through the moment the Spirit comes, noting the remarkable and almost unbelievable nature of the "tongues of fire." But, as always, there's more here than appears upon a first read. There's a profound reason that THIS is what happens when God decides to join His people.

SERMON: What Will You Do?
This week we look at Paul's discussion of the Pagans' history of turning away from truth and the havoc that is brought upon them as a result. It is a stark reminder that we, as people of the Truth, cannot sit idly in the midst of chaos. To do so would be to suppress an even greater truth and bring about even more unrest. We are the children of the living God. We are called to stand in the midst of the chaos and proclaim truth.

THE AFTERMATH: Episode 001
Daniel and Sam discuss some of the issues that come out of the story of Zacchaeus.
Oct 25, 2020
SERMON: When You Meet Jesus
For most of us, the story of Zacchaeus is little more than a Sunday school tale or a children's song. But, for Luke's telling of the Gospel, it is a foundational story that serves a crucial role.

SERMON: "Soft Difference"
The church all too often enters into strife, argument, and ultimately violence when it attempts to engage the world around it. Today we talk about Peter's instruction to think and act differently - to engage with love and respect.

SERMON: The Mustard Tree
The theological task is the work of the church that seeks to stand "between text and context." It asks how to we make the universal and timeless truth we find in the Biblical texts a reality in the midst of the particularities of our situation. It is a task that never ends, because the circumstances are always changing. Today, we look at the parable of the Mustard Seed and ask how we understand it, and then make it a reality for us.

SERMON: Order and Chaos
The Bible poses all sorts of conundrums for the post-enlightenment mind. Often it makes little, if any, sense. In this discussion we look at the first of two creation narratives in an attempt to make sense of them in light of the world they in which they were created. Oh, and we talk quantum mechanics in order to do so. Enjoy!

SERMON: Women Can't Teach?
1 Timothy 2:8-15 is one of the most controversial passages in the NT for our modern context. For years, people - mostly men - have looked to it to silence women and keep them from positions of authority within the church. Today, we're looking at the historical context of Ephesus where Timothy was working as well as a number of artifacts from the early periods of the church. Together, they paint a clear picture that tells us our "traditional" view of this passage is neither traditional, nor correct.

SERMON: Built Up In Christ
This week, Caleb taught us from Paul's letter to the church at Collosae.

SERMON: Doing Justice
Too often, we read the words of Jesus saying that healing, sight, and freedom are being brought with the kingdom and take those to be metaphorical. While they most certainly have a spiritual element, they are also very much a literal and tangible reality. As followers of the Jesus who brought restoration, we must find how we, too, must bring restoration and healing to our world.

SERMON: The 5-Fold Ministry
Only in rare cases does a church embody the entirety of the 5-fold ministry. As Paul went to great lengths to explain, this must change if we are to be the full, unified expression of church that we are called to be.

God, since the very beginning, has called and sent men and women. If we are to become a vibrant, meaningful church, we must recapture this purpose and understand we, too, are sent to the world. Source: Alan Hirsch

SERMON: "Follow Me"
To be a Christian is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Too often, we make being a Christian easy; we tell one another that showing up to a Sunday service, singing some songs, and, perhaps dropping a few dollars in a plate is what it's about. It's not. Sources: Alan Hirsch, Rob Bell

SERMON: The Heart of It All
Often, we make matters of faith more complex than they need be. The great movements of the church have been spurred on, in part, by a simple message: Jesus Is Lord. Recapturing this simple message and allowing it to transform us from the inside out is fundamental to our efforts to participate in God's work to bring about the Kingdom here and now.

SERMON: The Gospel
Many of us has inherited a version of the Gospel that is incomplete. The 4 Spiritual Laws have been effective for conversion, but impotent when it come to making disciples. This is because the 4 Spiritual Laws are not The Gospel.

SERMON: Loving Each Other Through Conflict
This morning, we talked about how to approach the many decisions that need to be made within the life of the Church from a position of love and respect.

SERMON: Where God Lives
"The Church is not a building, it's the people" is a phrase we hear over and over. But, it doesn't begin to go far enough. When we consider what the writer of 1 Peter and the other NT writers are saying, the implications are much more profound.
