We continue our short Sunday-morning series contemplating a Psalm. This week we look at Psalm 42 and how it speaks to our sadness. If you are struggling through disappointment in this season, I encourage you to take a few minutes to listen through this episode. Music: Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Part I Won't Let You Go Feat. Lauren Daigle (Live) by Switchfoot 
More house calls are here! Taylor, Sam, and Stephanie Facetime a few students to see how they are doing with the Covid-19 quarantine. You can find more information on our virtual small groups and bible studies here: https://establishedlnbc.squarespace.com/.
We continue our short Sunday-morning series contemplating a Psalm. This week we look at Psalm 3 and how it speaks to our fears and anxieties. Much of this was inspired by Tim Keller and his teaching on prayer and the Psalms. You can listen to Tim Keller's sermon, Praying Our Fears from his teaching series "Psalms - The Songs of Jesus."  Here are some other resources that could help with you praying the Psalms.  Answering God: The Psalms as Tools for Prayer by Eugene Peterson Praying the Bible by Donald S. Whitney Psalms: The Prayer Book of the Bible by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The house calls continue. As the COVID-19 quarantine persists, Taylor makes a few calls to students to see how they are doing in this season of life. As a special guest, Stephanie joins to have conversations with Jordan and Cadee. 
Doubt can be overwhelming, but God has given us a prayer book to pray our emotions back to Him. In the process, God turns our doubts to praise. 
At such a time where people are confined to their house, Taylor and Sam take a few minutes to Facetime people and check-in on them. It is like a good old-fashioned pastor's house call with a modern technological twist. 
Hearing God's Voice

Hearing God's Voice

2020-03-1946:25

One of the purposes of the practice of silence & solitude is to quiet the noise in order to hear the voice of God. What does it mean to hear God's voice? Many simplify this to mean simply reading scripture. Others expand it to include some mystical experience. Carson, Rich, Cam, and Taylor sit down to discuss the topic, attempt to strike a balance, and give practical ways to hear God's voice today. 
We thought it was really important for students to see how people implement the practice of silence and solitude in their everyday life, so we invited a few people from different backgrounds and in different life situations to share why and how they practice silence and solitude. We are super grateful for Erica, Elizabeth, and Cam sitting down to field some questions from Taylor. Hopefully the recording is bearable!
Of the many purposes of silence and solitude, identifying our feelings and then healthily expressing our emotions to God is one of the hidden gems. In a culture of anxiety where the coping mechanism is often emotional suppression, this is an important practice for our emotional, spiritual health.  You can read the teaching transcript here. 
Carson, Rich, and Taylor sit down for part-two in their discussion on the practice of silence and solitude. They define the practice, discuss its purposes, and give a few pointers for fighting distraction and persisting in the practice.  You can read Taylor's teaching on silence and solitude here.
Carson, Rich, and Taylor sit down to discuss the practice of silence and solitude. This is the first part of a two-part discussion on silence and solitude. Read Taylor's teaching on silence and solitude here. 
Destroy Distraction

Destroy Distraction

2020-02-2124:49

Richard Foster wrote, “Distraction is the primary spiritual problem in contemporary culture.” If we are going to practice the presence, we need to begin by destroying distraction.  Read the teaching at the resource page. 
As we look at the life of Jesus, we see that he often prioritized 'practicing the presence' - communion with the Father, solitude, prayer, fasting, etc. AS followers of Jesus, we should imitate Jesus in this practice. We also look at Matthew 4:1-11 to identify some purposes for the practice.  Read the teaching at the resource page. 
In this sermon, Taylor explores the Gospel of Matthew and how it presents what it means to follow Jesus. In short, followers of Jesus are filled with the life of Jesus to become more like Jesus and therefore imitate the life of Jesus. 
Who Is Jesus?

Who Is Jesus?

2020-01-1432:56

In the first session of this new series, we have some discussion and teaching around the question, "Who is Jesus?" 
As a quasi wrap-up to the "In the Beginning" series, we review one of the probing questions from Genesis 3: why is nakedness so central to the story? Carson, Taylor, and Cam sit down to discuss (after about 15 minutes talking about their favorite movies and books of 2019). 
Rich finishes up this series with a sermon on 3:14-24. 
Over the break for Christmas and New Years, Taylor gave a short teaching on what he has been learning about 'becoming present' and how it fights worry and anxiety in our busy lives. Here are some of the books he mentioned: Making All Things New: An Invitation to the Spiritual Life by Henri Nouwen The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer
The man and the woman have disobeyed, and now they have an encounter with the LORD God in the Garden. In one of the last sermons in this series, we see a God who leads his people to confess their sin, but who is also slow to anger and rich in love, mercy, and grace. 
In this bonus episode discussion with Cameron, Carson, and Taylor, we look at how the serpent of Genesis 3 has been popularly attributed to Satan. There is much more to delve into with this topic, so we mentioned some good resources if you would like to study further: SUPERNATURAL by Michael Heiser - https://www.amazon.com/Supernatural-Bible-Teaches-Unseen-Matters/dp/1577995589 BIBLE PROJECT SERIES on Spiritual Beings - https://thebibleproject.com/all-videos/spiritual-beings/

so I agree with everything your saying this is just an idea. I know that you said that the devil is like a lion and we are people who would notice and try to do something about it. but isn't the devil a trickster and doesn't he do things without us knowing. we wont always know that we are doing something wrong until someone lets us know and tries to help us. so maybe we don't always notice the "lion" but maybe our friends do and maybe they want to help. and maybe other people dont see the lion and thats why they post awful things.
