    Vitals – Mind of Christ
    Series: Vitals
    We talk about the Fruit of the Spirit...about the Spirit producing fruit in our lives and I don't think its an accident. What the Holy Spirit does in us is often an unseen growth. It is slow. This is what this life by the Holy Spirit is like and my prayer for you and I is that we would see how strong it actually becomes, just like the mind of Christ.

    Vitals – Eager to do Good
    Series: Vitals
    To be eager is to have a relaxed obedience while engaging the world. Ultimately we are invited into the life of God as he is restoring all things around us.
    "The really good news for humanity is that Jesus is now taking students in the master class of life." - Dallas Willard

    Advent in Wholeness
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in his poem "Who am I?" asks:
     
    Who am I? This or the Other?
    Am I one person today and tomorrow another?
    Am I both at once? A hypocrite before others,
    And before myself a contemptible woebegone weakling?
    Or is something within me still like a beaten army
    Fleeing in disorder from victory already achieved?
     
    In our state of dis-integration, with our divided selves, we try to pick through the pieces to put the best one forward but so often it confuses us and we end up asking the question, "Who am I?"
     
    So Bonhoeffer concludes the matter like this, "Whoever I am, you know, Oh God, I am yours."

    May we be eager to wander out to the margins and the fringes of those who go without and, who knows? By God's grace, Maybe, God will use us to help meet their needs.

    Insiders
    Here's what I know about the modern church. Over time, presumption begins to convince us to settle down. And the reason young people are resisting church right now is that they feel like we are spending too much time on the wrong things and no time on the right things. They don't think we are shook and until we allow God to shake us and open up our eyes to the things that matter most and we may miss out on the younger generations. So this Christmas, I don't wan't a light hearted Christmas I want a shaken Christmas. I want to be disturbed like Herod and all of Jerusalem with him. I want to go on a journey and have things deep in my life that have been unchecked and have been living in presumption to be challenged. Because the next thing that we do is important and I pray that as a church that would be our common vision.

    Shadow of Christmas
    May we visit the empty tomb of Jesus this season to see not only weakness and darkness but hope, power, eternity with Him that one day all despair, pain, loss, suffering, and death will be completely done away with and we will know peace in an indescribable way.

    The Ancients
    The promise from the ancients that we find fulfilled in Jesus is that God starts to take the grime and soil away and he takes that canvas and makes something beautiful emerge from it.

    Rooftops and Pushups
    It's always been a courageous deed to be a Christian. It's never been easy. Our unique shape of Christianity is to venture outside the fence a little bit and do church for the sake of others in a different way. And my prayer is that we allow new holes to be put in the roof and new light to be brought in so that those far and wide may know that God can show up anywhere he'd please. He doesn't have to fit our form or our mold that we've always counted on but God is big enough to do whatever he wants. And I'd pray that we'd have the sensibility and the passion and the compassion and the guts to pursue Jesus into that territory.

    Stay Woke
    Series: Youth Sunday
    "To be truly woke, one must see past the fake narratives and promises of this world and see the narrative provided by God."
    We have a unique narrative to offer the world and a maranatha prayer says it all. So we can bring the brokenness that we experience before God and call out,
    "Maranatha!"
    We can bring the injustice of the world before God and cry out,
    "Maranatha!"
    We can see so many without Christ and trapped in sin and pray,
    "Maranatha!"
    Because in that one word we ground ourselves in the promises pf God as we watch the waves of this broken world crash all around us.
