Imagine Yourself Celebrated
I attended a funeral this week. Family and friends celebrated the life of the departed with words of praise, gratitude and love. Do you ever wonder what they’ll say at your funeral? Want to know how to make sure you to are celebrated? Join us as we close out the Imagine series with a final look at two very important and powerful words.
Imagine Yourself Innocent
Do you blush less often than you used to? Do things you used to find offensive hardly raise an eyebrow anymore? Would you listen to your favorite music if your mom was riding in the car with you? We live in a coarse culture. And if you play in the yard, you’re going to track in some dirt. This week, we take a look at how we have become accustomed to impurity.
Imagine Yourself Righteous
When you choose to do the right thing – what’s behind that? Why do you sometimes say “Yes,” when you’d rather say “No,” because in that moment, saying “Yes,” is the right thing to do? Why do you sometimes stay when you’d rather run – or run when you’d rather stay? In this sermon, I’ll show you how your answer probably has something to do with marbles.
Imagine Yourself Respected
Shark Week will soon show up on the Discovery Channel. We’ll learn all there is to know about these fearsome predators. Here’s a question – why doesn’t Discovery do Dolphin Week? Dolphins are so much nicer. There’s actually a lesson there – fear and respect are as different from each other as sharks and dolphins. Lots of people think the way to win respect is to intimidate, bully and instill fear. Lots of people are wrong. Listen to today's lesson and learn how to earn genuine respect, how to keep it and what to do if you’ve lost it.
Imagine Yourself Real
A long time ago, a politician named Pilate asked a prisoner named Jesus this question: “What is truth?” The answer a lot of people would give these days is, “Whatever you want it to be.” Is truth really that squishy? What does it mean to be authentic? We’ll get into those questions and more in this message.
Teaching Imagination to Behave
On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers flew the first heavier-than-air, piloted machine. They travelled 120 feet and were airborne for 12 seconds. That feat of engineering imagination changed the world. But it was morally neutral – neither good nor evil. It simply was. Later, others would imagine morally good applications of that technology – transporting the sick to hospitals, putting out fires, rescuing people in danger. On September 11, 2001, however, nineteen terrorists imagined evil. They, too, changed the world. Imagination is powerful. It can create enormous good. It can unleash hell on earth. It has to be taught how to behave.
Imagine That
I learned to water ski while sitting in the back of a BMW sedan, crossing a bridge over a river in the north Georgia mountains. That’s nothing compared to the fact that Einstein figured out his theory of relativity while riding a bicycle. If those two sentences sound intriguing, you should join us for the whole sermon.
The God a Father Can Trust
Dads are supposed to slay the dragons. Sweep the monsters from under the bed and banish them from the castle. If the moon begins to fall from the sky, some dad will climb up there and hang it back up. Dads can do anything. Solve any problem. Fix what’s broken. Until they can’t. In Mark 9, a father with a problem he cannot solve – a sick child – meets Jesus; and Jesus gives him a reason to trust God again.
Those Others
Demographics won’t matter in heaven. We’ll all be so glad to be there that we won’t care where our heavenly neighbors came from, what earthly language they spoke or whether they listened to Rush Limbaugh or NPR. But demographics matter here. A lot. Seems like more than ever. If they don’t matter there, maybe they shouldn’t matter here.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

God is doing great things here and we want to be included. So many opportunities to be of service or just get together to get to know and love the people who are already members. We can’t wait to grow roots here.

We came for the children’s program, but we are already in love with the adult classes and the people.

It’s a church family we’d like to invite our neighbors to attend. Its members help and share with those in need.
