We begin this message with a secular Christmas song sung by Bruce Ewing and accompanied by Philip Fortenberry. This unconventional song for Christmas worship reflects the unconventional year we have all experienced.
We continue our Advent journey towards Bethlehem and we are ready to pack another item for our trip: joy. This essential quality in our lives can be grown so that we may thrive…even in times of trouble.
We enter into the second week of Advent and we are packing for Bethlehem. We are packing light by packing peace and getting rid of resentment.
We continue in our sermon series on thankfulness. Today we spend some time looking at the fact that we can be thankful that God wants to grow us.
Today we spend some time unpacking the importance of All Saints Sunday and how that can transform our lives. And a quick encouragement before the election.
There is always a day after conflict. It doesn’t all end when one side wins and the other loses. Why does that matter to us? Because we have a big “day after” moment coming up in November.
We take a look at the next Fruit of the Holy Spirit: Faithfulness. I clear up some misconceptions about faith and how it is different than belief. Transformation begins with faith… not belief.
We take a look two fruits of the Spirit through the lens of ancient wisdom this week. Kindness and gentleness. We need them more than ever.
We take a look at the second fruit of the Holy Spirit today through the lens of the wisdom of Proverbs. We find something quite surprising… joy is found in justice.
We begin a new sermon series called “How to Foolproof Your LIfe.” We will look at how to add wisdom to our lives focusing in on the Fruit of the Spirit. Wisdom is way better than knowledge. We begin today with love.
