A Note from the Pastor – In God We Trust? [1m read time]

Last Tuesday Americans voted with strong religious convictions, feeling certain they knew how to make our country a better place. We think if we can just elect the right candidates they will pass the kinds of laws that will ensure the blessing of God. We’re approaching the 100th anniversary of a significant faith based political [...]

A Note from the Pastor: No Matter What [1m read time]

Worship Moment: Grace [2m read time]

God’s constant grace is what calls out to the depths of who we are. It answers a longing that nothing in this world will ever satisfy, though we try. It’s deep calling to deep, satisfying a hunger in a way that never leaves you feeling hungry again. Grace is undeniably the greatest gift given to [...]

A Note from the Pastor – How to Pray

In the Bible the only activity for which Jesus’ disciples specifically requested training for was Prayer. There’s no record they ever said, “Lord teach us to worship.” Or “give us some pointers on exorcism.” They must have observed something significantly different from the manner of prayer in which they had been schooled since childhood.

Worship Moment: Are you flexible? [1m read time]

God is the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega, of everything in life! He knows our thoughts before we’ve even formed them, counted every hair on our head before we’re able to brush them. The God of creation is that intimately acquainted with us. Does this register for us? It’s not our keen [...]

A Note from the Pastor: God is at Work! [1m read time]

In most ancient mythologies, the gods were genuine slackers. They sat around and did nothing, apart from occasionally getting themselves into relational messes worthy of a soap opera. What’s the point of being a god unless you can play golf or take a nap whenever you want and demand that other people serve you? According [...]
