God Is ... In Control
Many of the things we do start with the push of a button, the click of a mouse, the turn of a wheel or the press of a pedal. We have an enormous amount of control right at our fingertips. Until the power goes out. Or the computer freezes. Or the engine dies. Control, for us, is always provisional and temporary. Not for God. His control is unconditional and eternal. And that’s good news. Here’s why . ., (additional Bible verses used: James 4:15, Job 42:2, Psalms 115:3, Proverbs 16:33, Daniel 4:24-25, Proverbs 16:32, Jeremiah 3:7, Jeremiah 2:30, Matthew 23:37.
God is ... Everywhere
You can cross a continent in less time than it took our ancestors to ride into town. Video telephony technologies like FaceTime or Skype put us in the “presence” of a loved one or business associate immediately. And our smartphones make us ubiquitously available. It’s almost like we have overcome all space/time limitations. Except we haven’t. We can still only be in one place at a time. God, however, is different. He’s everywhere. All the time.
God is ... Different
There are certain things that are common to all human societies. We all tell and laugh at jokes – at least until we are married, (after which wives don’t find their husbands near as humorous). In every society, people are afraid of snakes, but not of flowers. We all have a word for pain. We all play with toys. We all take turns. We are, it seems, remarkably similar. But God isn’t like us. God is . . . different. Additional passages: Leviticus 20:26, 1 Peter 1:15-16, Romans 3:10-11
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.

Are We There Yet?
At weddings, in the U.S., we exchange rings, light candles and throw rice. In Ireland, they tie a knot around the clasped hands of the bride and groom. At Jewish weddings, the happy couple crushes a wine glass and everyone shouts, “Mazel Tov!” In certain parts of China, the new husband carries his bride across a bed of hot coals. No matter where you’re from, people come up with some strange rituals to mark important occasions. But the one in Genesis 15 may be the weirdest thing you’ve ever heard of.
Baby Sunday / Little Faith
There is an iffiness about faith for most of us. A certain . . . uncertainty. We believe the promises of God, but life keeps offering evidence to the contrary. When we struggle with doubt, does God get angry? Give up on us? Or give us what we need to stay on the journey?
Alterations
Americans spend millions on self help books, seminars, weight loss programs, gym memberships and counselors. All because we want to be better. Oh, and we go to church a lot too. What if we are going about it all wrong?

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

First visit several years ago was confusing. First visit this summer, I was impressed with the service and the friendliness of the people. I was impressed with the focus on community. The openness, the understanding that the church is part of the world and local community.

I have always felt loved here. No one has ever judged me or made me feel less during any of my trials.

I consider the hearts of the people at Twickenham to be one of the greatest strengths. I have seen people quietly serve in so many ways and walk out life together. I also believe that the resources of the congregation can be a huge strength. Together, there is such a huge opportunity for ministry.
