A Faith That Weathers the Worst
When the worst happens we begin to ask hard questions. Why is this happening? Does God care? Is he punishing me? Is he angry? There's a great story in the Bible that helps us with some answers.
Good Enough Isn't
Compare them to a low-enough standard and you can make the Hell’s Angels look like the Little Sisters of the Poor. The thing is, we are not called to be better or more righteous or more moral than some human standard. We are called to be like God. And He is not just holy – He is holy, holy, holy!
Stranger Things Have Happened
In 1995, singer Joan Osborne hit the charts with the song, One of Us. The lyrics ask a haunting question: What if God was one of us? The sentiment is actually much older than that. Jesus himself suggested that very possibility.
Justice, Mercy, or Grace
You are home, minding your own business when you hear a noise in the garage. You investigate. You catch a neighborhood kid stealing something you value. How are you going to respond? You’ve got three options: justice, mercy or grace. Which do you choose? Before you answer, let’s talk about how God responded when we were caught red-handed.
Satisfied
Four-thousand hungry people. Seven loaves of bread and a few fish. One prayer. Problem solved. There are lessons to be learned in this story. Lessons about compassion. Communion. And about the confusion we often experience at the intersection of human need and God’s power.
Lost in the Crowd
Some people love crowds. The more the merrier. But for others, a big crowd is a little bit of hell on earth. They’d rather stay home to watch the big game or drive 15 hours instead of boarding one of those flying cattle cars we call an airplane. For some people, a crowd doesn’t produce a feeling of connection. It italicizes their isolation. It underlines their loneliness. Mark tells a story about that in chapter five of his gospel.
Urban Legends of Spiritual Growth

Sorry to ruin your day, but Elvis has not been in the witness protection program since 1977, Mr. Rogers was not a Navy seal and Walt Disney is not cryogenically frozen waiting for medical technology to bring him back to life. Those are all urban legends. So is the idea that spiritual growth is for a select few, that it happens automatically and that it’s a private, personal matter. Join us this week as we drop some truth bombs on urban legends of spiritual growth.

Bridging the Gaps
Want an inside look at Twickenham? This week, Jody unpacks the results from a recent congregational survey.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

This church is a positive, progressive body of believers who accept the normal diversity which exists in any church without trying to force some conformity and/or uniformity of belief or practices based on tradition, opinions, and preferences. Sadly, that is not the norm and thus you may be viewed as "different" by other churches or believers. I view such a difference as a great positive.

The diversity of thought that allows for tolerance of opinion with agreement on the basics of the gospel. The number of missions-minded individuals that are in involved in both foreign and domestic/local ministries.

This church has a large number of very talented members who appear to be highly involved and connected to all aspects of the church body. This church is at a prime location with many talented members and great opportunity to serve this community and beyond.
