    God’s Faithfulness

    Series: Family
    It is said, "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." The story of Jacob and Esau is a story of power abused for the sake of self-advancement. The Jesus-story shows us the divine example of power, "the greatest among you shall be the servant of all...for the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many." This week, look for opportunities to serve...and in doing so, reflect the power of Jesus.

    Resting
    Series: Family
    Rest...it's something we often long for but find it's availability allusive. The longing of God is for our deep resting rooted in relationship with Him. This resting does not preclude storms and droughts but in their midst we have a quiet, confident, stillness in which love holds us strong. As David writes, we too find, "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want....Even though I walk through the darkest valley, your rod and staff they comfort me."

    Wrestling
    Series: Family
    Wrestling with God sounds intimidating, yet that is the invitation of Scripture. Wrestling is a metaphor for intercession...bold, persistent intercession rooted in a deep sense of caring for God's name (character), people, and creation. "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Let's wrestle!

    It can be difficult to count stars amidst times of stress and fear. It can be difficult to believe the seemingly unbelievable when all around me is danger and destruction. Can we hear God speak, "I am your shield, I've got you now...I've got your future...I've got you...I am your shield."

    When You’re Afraid
    Series: Life
    Coronavirus, climate change, health concerns, finances...the list of concerns, global and personal, can be overwhelming. Fear rises up and like a fierce taskmaster it drives us to exhaustion of body, mind, and spirit. This is Elijah's story. But his story has another voice. This voice invites us to remember we are never alone. God is with us. This voice invites us to lie down in green pastures, to be restored by God's presence and love. Elijah, driven and harried, finds himself renewed and able to face the same circumstances that had driven him to despair. So it can be for us too if we listen for the still small voice amidst the clamor of fear-inducing circumstances. Peace be with you.

    When You’re Broken
    Series: Life
    "Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions." These words from Psalm 51 are a chapter of David's story. They remind us, sometimes we choose wrong paths. Those paths lead to oppression, darkness and alienation...brokenness. Psalm 51 lets us know, there is a way home. Restoration, reconciliation and flourishing can be found again. In David's beautiful poem he lays out this pathway. Reveal- tell the truth; Repent- turn away from the wrong paths and toward relationship with God; Reorient- wrong paths are created by unhealthy habits. New habits are needed to create new and healthy paths. Primary among new habits is Scripture. Like an artificial horizon or carpenter's level, Scripture reveals objective truth to fashion how we live our lives.

    When You’re Oh So Right
    Series: Life
    Peter, a devout Torah-keeping Jewish follower of Jesus, was fueled by deep convictions. As we walked through his story on Sunday we discovered that God leads us to new and unexpected understandings of faith and life. We sang of a God who opens blind eyes! Peter's story is our story. We dig our heels in, resist...sometimes loudly, insisting, openly or quietly, that God is on our side. Yet God comes and gives us new eyes to see what he is doing.

    When It’s Disappointing
    Series: Life
    Disappointment. It happens to all of us in varying degrees...minor to major. The story of Hagar is a story of disappointment. But her story doesn't stop there. Her story of disappointment is also her story of discovery. Hagar discovered that God hears (Ishmael), God sees (El Roi) and, amidst a culture that discounted her life, God sees ME (Beer-lahai-roi). Hagar's story is encouragement to us. While time and culture separate us, we find common ground in disappointment. We find common ground in Ishmael, El Roi and Beer-lahai-Roi. God hears and sees. God sees you and me. We are valued. God is present with us. We are not abandoned. We are not alone.
    God is with us.

    When It’s Good
    Series: Life
    The story of Mary and Joseph invites us to see how God can show up and take life in new and unexpected...even initially unwanted directions. God speaks saying, "Don't be afraid." Mary and Joseph were courageous. They let go of precious things that made life good for them. In faith and obedience they stepped out of their boat and partnered with God in His redemptive work. Let's remember Mary and Joseph as we begin to discuss our future. Might God be calling us to a new and vibrant chapter of life and ministry?
