A Haunting Way to End a Sermon

April 16, 2018

From the series, "Gospel of Matthew." Jesus ends his manifesto of life in the kingdom of the heavens, not with a pep talk or feel-good story, but with a warning about what happens when we don’t put his teachings into practice. In the “information age” and a cultural moment where hearing something and then doing nothing about it is the new normal, this is a warning we need to hear and heed.

Here Comes the Wolf Pack

April 8, 2018

From the series, "Gospel of Matthew." The modern world is a terribly confusing place to call home. We need luminaries to speak on behalf of reality and point the way to the good life. First century Jews called these luminaries "prophets." We might call them philosophers or psychologists or podcasters or pastors. But Jesus issued a stern warning: beware of false prophets. A warning we need to hear and heed in the modern church.

Part 4: The How-To of Reconciliation

March 25, 2018

From the series, "Forgiving As We Have Been Forgiven" as part of Practicing the way. In our final teaching, we flip it around from forgiving people who have hurt us, to reconciling with people we have hurt. In a cultural moment of victimization, it's all to easy to blame shift and make excuses, but the invitation of Jesus is to journey down the long, slow road of reconciliation.

Part 3: The How-To of Forgiveness

March 18, 2018

From the series "Forgiving As We Have Been Forgiven" as part of Practicing the Way. One of, if not the greatest, gifts we receive as apprentices of Jesus is forgiveness. But to Jesus, this is a gift we are to pass on to others. His end goal is for his apprentices to grow and mature into the kind of people who are forgiving by nature. But this is hard to do! In this teaching, we move from the idea of teaching to the practice of it. Using a five stage process called R.E.A.C.H., we aim to replace the emotions attached to our wounds.

Two Ways

February 25, 2018

From the series, "Gospel of Matthew." If we're going to practice the way of Jesus, we must recognize that the way of our city and the way of Jesus are not the same. In a culture where the mantra is, "Do whatever feels good", Jesus invites his followers through the narrow gate and on the hard way because it alone leads to life.

Part 3: To Stand in Solidarity With the Poor

January 28, 2018

From the series, "Fasting" as part of Practicing the Way. Fasting isn’t just about us; it’s about standing in solidarity with the poor, who regularly go without food. Fasting trains our hearts in compassion, and opens up money and time to serve those in need. Regular fasting tied to generosity is a small, but surprisingly effective way to see justice come to our city.
