This week, we take a look back at the opportunities for service that took place over the summer, allowing ourselves to be amazed at what God is doing among us. This sense of awe can inspire us and encourage us to continue living faithfully as we prepare for the coming months in the Fall and as many of our students return back to school this week.

As Jesus continues to teach his disciples and even the religious leaders of his day about the Kingdom of Heaven, he challenges them to seek that Kingdom—the Kingdom of God—above the kingdoms of this world. He confronts the religious leaders and Pharisees about the kingdoms built upon religion, and he confronts our kingdoms today built around ourselves, or our ideas about safety and comfort. Jesus invites us into the Kingdom of Heav... Read more

This week, as we read the parable of the 2 sons, we must confront our own hypocrisy and learn to "hike to the mountaintop to see the forest," and to "turn our oven on self-cleaning mode."

The parable of the vineyard workers continues to teach us about the Kingdom of Heaven and how God’s kingdom is unlike anything in this world. In God’s kingdom, God’s grace is not earned or deserved—you cannot even really work for it. Instead it is a gift from God. The work that we do is as a result of the promise of the gift. Not in order to earn it. Not only do we learn about how amazing God’s grace is as a gift, but we also learn... Read more

This week, we dive into the parable of the unforgiving servant and examine how we can and should forgive one another as God has forgiven us. We see in this story that the master of the servant forgives his servant by seeing him with compassion, canceling the debt, and let him go. The master expects us to follow his pattern.

Jesus continues his lessons using parables with the parables of the mustard seed and the yeast. These parables emphasize the growth of God’s Kingdom from small and humble beginnings and remind us that God’s purposes for creation are that all may participate in the Kingdom of Heaven. We know that it is through Jesus that this Kingdom is coming into reality, and we are encouraged to bring all the people of God’s creation into this Ki... Read more

In Matthew’s Gospel, we encounter a number of parables that are intended to describe the inbreaking of the Kingdom of Heaven that Jesus is announcing. The first of these parables is the Parable of the Sower, found in Matthew 13:1-23. In this parable, Jesus instructs his disciples to hear, understand, and the bear fruit—meaning that they should listen to Jesus and act accordingly. As the Kingdom of Heaven arrives through Jesus, we j... Read more

Genesis 16 contains an amazing story of a slave woman who has been mistreated by her masters (God's chosen family of Abram and Sarai) but who is cared for by God. Because of Hagar's encounter with God, she becomes the only person in Scripture to give God a name. She names him the God who sees, El Roi. As a church family, we want to join the work of what God is doing in seeing those who are in need and caring for them. God sees thos... Read more

Today, we use the cross as a symbol of God's love, grace, and forgiveness, as well as to remember the sacrifice that Jesus was willing to make for us. However, the cross did not originally mean that. It was a symbol, instead, of Rome's power--that no one dare revolt against or oppose Rome. But through the sacrifice of Jesus, the cross now declares victory. Victory against sin and death, and victory to follow Jesus as relationship w... Read more

This week, John Mark and the praise team lead us through the lyrics and some of the theology behind the song, "Beautiful Things." This song reminds us of the biblical story that we are dust, but we are beautiful dust, and that God is working to restore the dust of this world to good relationship with him.

This Sunday, we will center our worship and preaching on the lyrics for the song “Amazing Grace.” This song was written during the last years of the slave trade in Britain by John Newton. It speaks of our need for God’s amazing grace to come into our lives because of our inevitable sinfulness. 25 years after retiring from the slave trade and joining the Anglican church, Newton wrote these words to reflect his experience. However, t... Read more

As Jesus himself prepares for the crucifixion (and resurrection), he prays to God, “if it’s possible, take this cup of suffering away from me.” No one ever said this way of following Jesus was easy. Even Jesus found it difficult. Yet, Jesus teaches us that the prayer doesn’t end there. Jesus continues in his prayer, “However—not what I want but what you want.” Jesus teaches us one of the most difficult lessons we will ever have to ... Read more

In this passage, the aroma of Mary’s perfume as it is poured on Jesus’ feet fills the whole house. In other words, Mary’s action of giving, of sacrificing, is infectious and it spreads everywhere. Judas can’t stand the smell of this wastefulness, and yet Jesus defends Mary’s actions not as wasteful, but as a beautiful gift. As Easter comes nearer, we should understand that by participating in the “wastefulness” of Jesus’ giving of ... Read more
