Out of Egypt
That's My Story
Children never just hear a story – they try it on for size. They’ll stomp around in too-big boots playing cowboy for a day or drape a towel around their shoulders for a superhero cape. To a child, a story isn’t just about what happened. It’s a promise of what might be. I think Matthew, the author of the first gospel, believed that, too. He isn’t just writing history. He’s prompting us to find ourselves in this story. To try it on for size. So – what part of this story is yours? Which character are you?
An Impossible Promise
When you hear the word prophet, you think about some bearded sage who predicts the future. But what if you thought of a prophet as someone who makes a promise? An impossible promise. And what if that promise, as impossible as it is to believe, was kept? That’s what Christmas is. Impossible promises kept by a faithful God.
Any Way You Slice It
Ok, we’ll be honest. There are not many ways to make this message seem all that interesting. This is the one where we talk about our 2019 spending plan – what some people call a budget sermon. But there are three impossible-to-believe stories tucked away in this message that are worth it. Seriously, these are really great stories. So go ahead . . . hit play.
Source of Gratitude
Daniel used to stop by my office for a cookie. Every time I gave him one, his father, Jose, issued the same command: “Daniel – tell the man thank you.” Why? For the same reason God commands us to be grateful. In this special service, we’ll focus on why we can be grateful. No matter what.
The Science of Gratitude
We live in an interesting town. Faith is such a deeply held cultural value here that many of the best restaurants are closed on Sunday – and I’m not just talking about that famous chicken sandwich joint. On the other hand, the town was built on science and technology. Its nickname is Rocket City. Lots of people think science and faith can’t have a decent conversation. Not true. Science and scripture agree on more than you might think. Especially when it comes to gratitude.
No Matter What
Sisters who thanked God for a flea infestation? A young wife and mother who lives gratefully even though she has cancer? A dying man who spends his final days full of joy? How do these people do it? Join us for an answer that just might change everything.
Happiness Doubled by Wonder
It’s easy to be grateful when things are going well. But when your health fails or your marriage melts or your job vanishes, what’s there to be grateful for? In this message, we take a look at two ancient words to uncover the secrets to being thankful no matter what.
DIY Church
Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects are hot these days. You go on YouTube and find step-by-step instructions for everything from home repair to auto maintenance. There is a certain satisfaction when you finish a job yourself. But when it comes to matters of the soul, DIY is not recommended. In fact, God had some pretty strong words for a church that tried it.
