Gratitude

Gratitude

2019-10-2100:18:13

"Give thanks in every situation," the bible says. It's not always easy. Giving thanks is good for us, but only if and when we give thanks out of genuine gratitude, not for being shamed into it. Stewardship starts with thanksgiving; with the recognition of all the ways God has blessed us, and our expressions of gratitude in return.

How do you make sense out of the story in Genesis 31 where Jacob and his father-in-law Laban part ways sharing a trust in God but without trusting each other? But considering Peter's confession of Jesus as the Messiah. Witnessing helps us move part pettiness and toward following Jesus a bit better today than yesterday.
A brief reflection on symbols of power and communion

Concluding our Love Where You Are: The Art of Neighboring Series brings us back to the  story of the Good Samaritan. Jesus "flipped the script" on the legal expert, and how Jesus flips the script on us.
Our Invisible Neighbors

Our Invisible Neighbors

We have to see our neighbors to love them. Who are the people around you that you most easily overlook or see right through?  Who blends into the background? Even these are our neighbors. And followers of Jesus are commanded to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. 
In the first 4 sermons of this series, we focused on various answers to the "who is my neighbor" question. Today we look at what it means to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
Love Where You Are

Love Where You Are

2019-09-0900:46:30

Some of us want to be or live or worship someplace beside where we are. Sometimes this is because we feel out of control or unappreciated. The world around us doesn't seem to value what we believe God calls us to value. Into this situation, the prophet Jeremiah speaks, and tells us to "Promote the welfare of the city where God has sent us into exile." The hardest part of this for American Christians is recognizing that we live in exile - in a place we don't control. God doesn't call us to control, though, but to trust God, and promote the welfare of the place where we are.
Do I have to be a neighbor?

Do I have to be a neighbor?

If you are a follower of Jesus you have no choice but to be a neighbor to others. To everyone. The bible teaches that God's people are commanded to "love your neighbor as you love yourself."  As a result, people ever since have been choosing who they have to consider a "neighbor." Jesus loves your neighbor as much as Jesus loves you, so do the same! Jesus' story in Luke 18 offers an awesome twist, convicting us when we try to decide that some people just don't count as "neighbor." Hint: they ALL count!
Have you met MY neighbor?

Have you met MY neighbor?

Some neighbors are harder to love than others. For some people, we are the hard to love neighbors!  Followers of Jesus don't just love the easy-to-love neighbors, though.
