  • Joy-Full Capacity for Life!

    Joy-Full Capacity for Life!

    February 16, 2020  — 

    As we conclude our journey through Philippians, the Apostle Paul concludes with a few final pointers on how to fill up with joy so that we will have capacity for our lives as they happen. Joy enables us to partner with Christ with capacity to do the full range of life – from a center of contentment.

    Scripture: Philippians 4:8-13
  • Joy-Fueled Lights in the World

    Joy-Fueled Lights in the World

    January 19, 2020  — 

    Joy is very different from putting on a happy face, or trying to make the best of a bad situation. It is a strategy of the Kingdom of God to signal to a world wandering in the dark that they are not alone – that there is hope. So, it is vital for the people of God to train – hard – for the work of Rejoicing! Its game time!

    Scripture: Philippians 2:12-18
  • A Season of Advent: Joy

    A Season of Advent: Joy

    December 15, 2019  — 

    The third stop on the Advent Journey celebrates the wonder of Joy – the capacity for life as it is, on the way to Life as it will be. Joy is, unlike happiness, is not reflective of the circumstance – in fact, joy reframes our attitude towards the circumstances, allowing us to sit deeply with pain and loss without losing our way. And, as it turns out – Joy has a first Name, born in Bethlehem!

    Scripture: Isaiah 35:1-10
  • A Season of Advent: Peace

    A Season of Advent: Peace

    December 1, 2019  — 

    Advent marks the beginning of the church calendar year with a deliberate slowing – a pause in preparation for Him for Whom we wait. The prophet Isaiah’s fantastic visions of a world redeemed give us hope for peace – shalom – in a time of tension and conflict. And call us to join, even now, in preparing Him room.

    Scripture: Isaiah 2:2–5
  • Mark: Drop Everything; In Place Greatness

    Mark: Drop Everything; In Place Greatness

    November 3, 2019  — 

    Following Jesus in order to be with and learn from him will bring us into tension with the ways we have been trained to think – especially about power and position. Jesus, who clearly has all the power necessary to force outcomes, uses his power to serve and not for his own advantage. He invites us to re-consider that greatness might begin right where we are – marked by serving.

    Scripture: Mark 10:35-45
