Empty and Open
"The world best kept secret: that love need not be scarce." - Karen Dombeck

If the tomb of Jesus is found to be empty and open, the maybe the tombs that we tend (regret, brokenness, scarcity, profound sadness) can be found empty and open, as well.

    We affirm our faith in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, who set aside the privileges of deity, emptied himself and took on the status of a slave. He became human!

    Remember, in the end, that it is not perfect people that drive out fear - but perfect love that drives out fear. Let Him drive, starting with right now.

    How to Fall Asleep in Church
    Just like water must be the right temperature to be transformed by a tea bag., we must have the right temperament to be transformed by the Holy Spirit. If you're not being transformed, don't blame the tea bag.

    Entering the New Heaven and the New Earth
    If the city is the Church built upon the foundations of the testimony of the Apostles to Christ, if the River is the Holy Spirit, what is the fruit? The fruit is the fruit of the Gospel - people converted, lives changed, sins forgiven, and characters healed. We are the fruit of the Tree of Life - and it is our privilege to share the Gospel of the Tree of Life with others.

    Lamb Light
    The love of God is not just any old kind of love. It is the greatest most wonderful love we could possibly imagine. It is a love that will not let us go, that loves us despite all our sin, our brokenness, and our betrayals. It is the steadfast love of the LORD, it is the self-giving love of the great artist who created the universe, and it is the sacrificial love of the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the World.

    Transformed by Generosity
    The early church was filled with the Holy Spirit, and miraculous things happened. One miraculous aspect of this Spirit-filled fellowship was that it was generous. The world saw the love and the generosity of the early church, and the result was growth.

    A Tale of Two Women
    It is a mistake to hear the words of Paul as if they were meant to nullify wisdom or to indicate that God's wisdom is a kind of foolishness. Instead, what Paul means is simple. While the deep wisdom of God may seem to be foolishness to the wise of this word, it is in fact the most practical thing of all. Why? Because in the end, wisdom and love are, and will be, the most powerful force in all the world.

    Transformed Living in Hard Times
    Being Christian in this world is not easy but we are strengthened by our sufferings and the pressure of being different in our society so that we receive the blessing God promises those who are called by his name.

    Worship that Transforms
    Jesus, though he was in the very form of God did not take and maintain that royal position. Instead, he was willing to be humbled and take on the form of a servant becoming obedient to the Father even unto death, death on a cross. If we are to have the same mind as Christ, the we too must become lambs willing to be slain for the sins of the world - not as Jesus was but in our own way.
