I AM The Breadof Life - September 3, 2017

John 6:27-59

The stories in the Gospel of John, in large part, are about Jesus as divine. We see a host of miracles and we hear Jesus talk about himself as the great I AM. I AM being one of the primary names for God that we learn from the Old Testament. When we read these stories, we are being invited, maybe even urged to see Jesus as God and to see God through Jesus. When Jesus says, "I AM the bread of life," he is saying, "I AM God." And he's

I AM The Light of The World - August 27, 2017

John 8:12-19

I have to tell you, I love the riches of John....especially the I AM statements. They can seem a little odd...but, if we can unpack them, they are layered with meaning. And to get to that meaning, we have to dig a bit into the Old Testament—the traditions and the rituals. As you heard today, we dug into the story of the Exodus and then into the laws of Leviticus....but we actually need one more component...the

Dig In Deep - August 20, 2017

Romans 8:1-4, 12-17

As we think about grace and the ways God is at work in our lives. It's key (pun intended!) to see grace as a gift. We have to realize God is always offering that gift. That's what we call prevenient grace. It's here...before us before we look for it or notice it or dare to get close to it. God's gift is here for us.
And that gift isn't meant to just sit here and look pretty. It's not a hood ornament....it's something for us to receive and use daily. We have to open that gift to appreciate it. Seeing

God's Got A Hold On You - August 6, 2017

Psalm 139:1-16
The psalmist starts with a powerful proclamation...God has searched me and known me. It's both awesome and humbling. It's incredible that God cares so much to know each of us intimately—and it's humbling...God knows us....like all of us...has searched us....each corner and closet...and God knows us. Some of us might shrug and say "ok", while others of us look like a deer in headlights suddenly thinking "are you kidding? I thought God only got to see what I showed God....God

What Am I Supposed To Do? - July 30, 2017

James 2:1-4, 14-18

Practice what you preach and live what you believe. This seems so obvious....and yet, when push comes to shove....it can be so hard to live. Ask me how I know. Months ago, we began planing for the Love Your Neighbor event and this sermon series. The worship team had sat down to brain storm and the weeks were planned out. Love your neighbor is not a new concept for me...I grew up with it and was raised in a family where we lived our faith. And then, the night before this series started, we had a blow up with one of our neighbors. We were all civil, but there was a lot of frustration and anger. I had lots of unkind thoughts in my head...and at the same time, I knew that the next day
