    Jesus entered in to this world learning specific languages, living at a specific geographical location, at a specific time. And just as Jesus entered into the world, into the lives of those at that time, He now dwells in us and empowers us to do the same! This is our moment! We were made for this time! And this is the time to be covered in the dust of our rabbi, learning from Him and following His every move so that we too can enter into he lives of others.

    This Is Us – Questionable Lives
    Series: This Is Us
    If we only go to the same places and do the same things and group with people who are like us the our perception of the world gets shrunken in to the narrow story of things that we only care about. So this week, make time to be an alien and a stranger in your own town. Try to diversify what you do and where you go. Make time to hang out with a different group of people than you usually do, to go to places you don't usually visit and be the minority voice. In doing this we will find that we enter in to the experience of Jesus and begin to wonder, "What else can I do to appeal to the world around me; particularly those who are not Christian, like me."

    Steps to Emmaus
    Series: Steps
    Perhaps all along, in our wandering, God has been in disguise, reasoning with us through perhaps an event at work, or a conversation with a family member, or a phone call from an old friend or a conversation with our kids, or a line in a TV show. This God dressed in common dress has been appealing to us to make our a way back home. Will we hear that and see Him and to make our way back home?
  • Aug 28, 2017A we approach the resurrection life we begin to let go of the things that don’t belong in this new world…our bitterness, our resentment, the ways we ignore others around us and we learn to breath the air of a brand new world. That is what’s going to happen as we take steps from the tomb. Let us take those steps together because as we walk together as the body of Christ we see that resurrection around us in a thousand different ways.

    Steps to the Cross
    Series: Steps
    Just as Jesus was raised on the third day, we are raised in Christ and we enter already ahead of time that new life that God promises those who call upon His name. The question we must answer now is, will we walk the path of the cross? Will we confess that we have fallen short and our life hasn't added up? Will we trust the mercy and grace we find in Jesus Christ? Will we make our steps toward the Cross?

    Steps Through The Garden
    Series: Steps
    The world around us eager for us to follow our God into messy situations and to be the hands and feet of Jesus. What we do next as a church, as followers of Jesus, matters to God. As people of God let's be prayer warriors and let's be people of sympathy and empathy but let's also, with all the guts and grace Jesus gives us, journey out into God's world, into the midst of the brokenness...in the midst of the fracture and say, "God, what is the most faithful thing I can do here? How can I include? How can I embrace?" At the very least can we say that we will not be shaped by the thing that crawls along the bottom of a television screen but the words that are in red in the text we claim to believe!
