Proclaim Faith - December 31, 2017

Luke 2:22-39

Who in your faith life do you trust? I mean really trust? You know they are faithful, they are prayerful, they listen to God, and they genuinely hear from the Holy Spirit? They're not in the "they sound crazy but they could be faithful" category, but the genuinely faithful category. And their faith extends beyond the basics such that if you had a new experience in faith you could go to them to see if you are crazy or if you experienced God. Who is that person? Maybe you know someone personally,

Proclaim Love - December 24, 2017

Luke 2:1-7

There are lots of things we could look for in this story and we could imagine all sorts of details to bring this story to life.
We could imagine Mary sick as a dog for those first few months.
We can imagine her young and fearful, anxious about becoming a mother. Visiting her cousin for comfort and support.

Proclaim Peace - December 17th

Matthew 1:18-25

When Things Come Undone - November 19, 2017

Genesis 37 - Joseph's Story

When I was little, we used to get together with my extended family for the big holidays. And when we did, it was always a lesson in genealogy and family history. My dad is one of 4, and his dad was one of 5 and his mom was one of 3. All together we'd be 60 or 70 people at my aunt's house. And we only saw each other once or twice a year, so we were regularly asking "who is that?" "Who is he related to?" We became well versed in who was first cousins, second cousins, first cousins once removed and second
