Will You Stand Among the Righteous?- August 5, 2018

Psalm 1

Psalm 1 tells us "Blessed are those who don't stand among the wicked, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on [God's] law day and night." We are encouraged to choose God and God's law over lawlessness and sinfulness. Not shocking, right? Fairly straightforward. And most of us don't choose wickedness as some pre-meditated plan. "Ha, ha, ha, today I'm going to be evil! Whahahaha". That's not who we are. That's not why we're here. Generally, we mostly consider ourselves decent people who try to do right by God and neighbor. And yet, we know we're not perfect. We have our

What Story Should You Tell? - July 29, 2018

Acts 7It's kind of wild that we can get a brief summary of the whole biblical Jewish history in just one chapter. If you've studied the Old Testament scriptures much, or if you went to Sunday school as a child, you probably knew the names and at least part of the stories. If you're new to the church or the Old Testament stories—good news, you're

The Summons - July 22, 2018

Acts 6

What we see here is a glimpse at church growth—more and more people are learning about Jesus and more and more were choosing to follow him, which is something people celebrate—we want the life-giving power of Jesus to reach more people. We want more people to know about forgiveness and grace and God's deep deep love. But then the complaints started happening—the church isn't doing enough. The people are being forgotten. Some groups are being treated unfairly. Some people are falling into old ways—

More Than a Gong - July 15, 2018

1 Corinthians 13:1-1

This is a popular passage, most of us have heard it more than a few times. Even folks who don't go to church have probably heard this somewhere...in popular culture, in a movie, at a wedding...it's pretty well known. But we don't always look at it in context, so we're going to take a bit to look a little at the bigger picture.

1 Corinthians is a letter to the church in Corinth, in Greece...and it's Paul's response...he was their pastor and they needed advice, so they wrote him or sent word with someone else, only

Matthew 4:1-11

This story comes at the beginning of Jesus' ministry. In the Gospel of Matthew we've heard the story of Jesus' birth, the visit of the magi, the holy family fleeing as refugees to Egypt, and then Jesus as an adult being baptized by his cousin John. And then after the baptism comes this story...Jesus spending 40 days in the desert for fasting and prayer, and then being tempted by the devil.
And one of the things I find most interesting about this passage is that in the first verse it
