Once A Stranger - October 28, 2018

Leviticus 19:33-34
This month, we’ve been looking at how our faith is about #morethanus. We’ve talked about our call to see and serve the poor, to hear the voices of women and change systems and practices of injustice. We looked at Jesus’ invitation and welcome of children and the ways he reminds us that the kingdom of God becomes manifest when we gather together and seek after him. And today, we are focusing on the biblical call to love and care for the stranger. As we prepared for this series, we collected scripture quotes from throughout the Bible…James, Isaiah, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, and many more. Including the specific verses Rylie read this morning: 33 “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.34 You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the

Let The Children Come - October 21, 2018

Mark 10:1, 13-16 People were bringing their kids to Jesus. Not just one or two people. Not just women. People. Lots of people. Men and women were bringing their kids to be blessed.

Now, at this point in the Gospel of Mark, Jesus is pretty far along in his ministry. He’s called the disciples. He’s healed the demoniac. He’s head Simon Peter’s mom and all the people that came as soon as they heard. H healed the leper and the paralytic and the man with the withered hand. He’s dealt with demons and started teaching in parables. He’s calmed the storm on the Sea of Galilee. He healed the bleeding woman and Jairus’ daughter. He’s fed the 5000 and

Hearing Their Voices - October 14, 2018

A Chorus of Voices (quotes from women in the bible) Let me tell you the story of a woman. She married a man. She loved him. Cooked his meals. Raised his children. And then one day he died. She wasn’t sure what she would do. He had worked. He made the money. She wasn’t allowed. Her place was at home. His family came for the funeral and said they would help. They asked for the money to make the arrangements and made themselves at home in her home. The flood of her grief was intense. But having family there helped. And the day came for the service to say their last goodbyes. And so she did. She said goodbye to her husband, the one who had been her provider and support. And when she returned home, she was told her home was no longer her own. His belongings now belonged to his family, not hers. They returned no money. Gave no

Learning to See - October 7, 2018

Jeremiah 22:3
Proverbs 22:22-23
We live in a “me” culture—one that tells us that each issue and interaction and statement is about me. If we switch to default settings, it’s all about us—well, not really us—me. And of course for you—you—for John—John, for Amy—Amy, for each one it’s about themselves. And, if we aren’t careful—even as we learn the faith, we can interpret the scriptures through a very

Deep Roots - September 23, 2018

Colossians 2:2-3, 6-15 When I went to college I wanted to find a church or a ministry….something to stay connected to the faith I had grown up in. In the dorms, I met some great women who invited me and encouraged me to be a part of their ministry. We played capture the flag, hide and seek in the sculpture garden, and then they invited me to do Bible study. I remember the three of us sitting at the start of Bruin walk and opening the Bible to John 1. They explained what the Gospels were (which I already knew because I had grown up reading them in church and in Sunday school), and then started working their way through John chapter 1…which, can be a little dense. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. It’s not exactly self-explanatory….
