Speaking of Life 2028 | Making Something Out of Nothing

Out of dust and breath, God formed humans in his own image. When we try to earn our value from being successful, popular, or important, we will lose the incredible significance of what it means to be human. There’s no greater foundation than rooting our identity in the truth that we are beloved, image bearers of the Triune God – who specializes in making something out of nothing.

Speaking Of Life 2027 | And that End is Love

No better place is the phase “better together” embodied than within the church. We are each given gifts, not to use for our own self-promotion. God calls us out of ourselves and into relationship, with himself and one another. He calls us into a deeper and richer life as we work out the Christian life in community.

Speaking Of Life 2026 | Any Takers

Sometimes eternal life is talked about like its some kind of eternal heavenly cruise that we take without God. Jesus gives us a better question to ask by telling us plainly what eternal life is. This focuses our questions, not on the what, when, and where of eternal life, but on the who. As we come to know Jesus, we began an eternal journey of knowing the Father whom we will spend eternity with.

In dark and difficult times we do not need to be paralyzed with fear. In the gospel of John, Jesus promises to be our Shepherd – going before us, mercifully leading and guiding us through any circumstances. Listen for his gentle call and be encouraged by loving guidance.

Speaking Of Life 2021 | Patron Saint of Doubters

Have we as Christians made doubt a sin? Jesus seemed to think about it differently. He went out of his way for sinners, disabled, and unseen people, makes a special trip to come close enough to the doubter that Thomas can touch the evidence himself. Like with Thomas, Jesus wants to put our doubts to rest.

Speaking Of Life 2019 | Put Down Your Sword

By every right, God could have wiped humanity out and started over. We chose sin and polluted his perfect world. But God’s plan was never to take his revenge on us. He took that hurt into himself in Jesus. As John the Baptist proclaimed, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.”
