  • The Judge - Winds of Change

    The Judge - Winds of Change

    26/04/2020 Duración: 35min

    We like rules because they make things black and white. But real life is full-color, and knowing what’s right can feel nearly impossible sometimes. Jesus describes the Holy Spirit as our judge, the one who reveals both sin and righteousness to the...

  • The Advocate - Winds of Change

    The Advocate - Winds of Change

    19/04/2020 Duración: 30min

    None of us likes to feel put on the spot, singled out or attacked. That's part of what makes sharing our faith so scary - who knows how people are going to react! But before Jesus left us, he promised the Holy Spirit would be our Advocate. What does...

  • A Breath of Fresh Air - Winds of Change

    A Breath of Fresh Air - Winds of Change

    12/04/2020 Duración: 33min

    The first Easter was a time of fear and isolation. In other words, we have a lot more in common with the disciples on that first Easter than we usually do, when Easter is a big party in our church buildings. So what can we learn from that first...

  • Laodicea: The Self-Sufficient Church - Under Pressure

    Laodicea: The Self-Sufficient Church - Under Pressure

    05/04/2020 Duración: 37min

    How much of our life actually involves Jesus? Is he essential or a mascot? The church at Laodicea paid Jesus lip service, but when he came to town, they left him out in the cold. On this Palm Sunday, how can we be sure we're welcoming Jesus as our...

  • Philadelphia: The Weak Church - Under Pressure

    Philadelphia: The Weak Church - Under Pressure

    29/03/2020 Duración: 31min

    How does a Church measure success? Is it with numbers? Activities? Size? By any of those measures, the church at Philadelphia was a failure – and yet Jesus praised them more highly than any of the other churches. What can we learn about how to be...

  • Sardis: The Dead Church - Under Pressure

    Sardis: The Dead Church - Under Pressure

    22/03/2020 Duración: 26min

    What does it mean for a church to have a good reputation in the world? After all, reputation is rooted in values, and what should matter to a church isn't always what matters to Jesus. The Church in Sardis got it wrong; how can we get it right?

  • Thyatira: The Divided Church - Under Pressure

    Thyatira: The Divided Church - Under Pressure

    15/03/2020

    Part of the pain of growing older is learning the world isn't as black and white as we thought it was. We struggle to navigate a life - and a faith - that is messier than we wish it were. The Church in Thyatira faced similar problems - with...

  • Pergamum: The Compromised Church - Under Pressure

    Pergamum: The Compromised Church - Under Pressure

    08/03/2020 Duración: 35min

    How often do we examine the roots of our values? Why do we really care about the things we care about? How did we decide what our vision for the Good Life is? Christians in Pergamum had the same problem we do – they assumed the values of their...

  • Smyrna: The Weird Church - Under Pressure

    Smyrna: The Weird Church - Under Pressure

    01/03/2020 Duración: 37min

    Christians have always had a reputation for being a little weird. But how exactly are we supposed to be different from the culture around us? And what does that cost us?

  • Ephesus: The Legalistic Church - Under Pressure

    Ephesus: The Legalistic Church - Under Pressure

    26/02/2020 Duración: 33min

    Somehow, it's far too easy for religion to turn rotten. Faith that begins beautiful and life-giving turns cruel and judgmental. Jesus' message to the church in Ephesus reminds us: we need to return to our first love to avoid the trap of legalism.

  • Church + Serve - Church Words With Friends

    Church + Serve - Church Words With Friends

    23/02/2020

    If we think about it for a minute or two, we realize church isn’t a building, but an organization. But what kind of organization? The Church is a body of ministers, a whole group of servants. How does that work? And what does it look like when we...

  • Salvation + Sanctification - Church Words With Friends

    Salvation + Sanctification - Church Words With Friends

    09/02/2020 Duración: 33min

    What does it mean to get saved? It's more than just a one-time experience. Salvation is a process that's on-going, one where we're learning how to live as God's children. What does that process look like? How can we be sure we're "working out...

  • #Blessed + Grace - Church Words With Friends

    #Blessed + Grace - Church Words With Friends

    02/02/2020

    What does it mean to be #blessed? We have a sense that it's not material prosperity, but it's hard to put our finger on exactly what it IS. Jesus shows us that blessing is about experiencing God's presence, a presence available to us regardless of...

  • Wrath + Atonement - Church Words With Friends

    Wrath + Atonement - Church Words With Friends

    26/01/2020 Duración: 35min

    Is God angry at us? Did Jesus pacify a raging deity? Why did God kill his son rather than us? This week, we're diving into God's Wrath and the Atonement because we've got it all wrong. God's wrath is about love (yes, really) and the cross isn't...

  • Gospel + Incarnation - Church Words With Friends

    Gospel + Incarnation - Church Words With Friends

    19/01/2020

    Jesus claims to be God, but so have a lot of people throughout history. What sets Jesus apart? What proves he is God? It's not his miracles, or his birth. It's his death that proves what kind of God he is.

  • God + Trinity - Church Words With Friends

    God + Trinity - Church Words With Friends

    12/01/2020 Duración: 36min

    Who is God? The vast majority of Americans say they believe in God, but that word is so generic, it doesn't actually tell us very much. That's why the Church holds the doctrine of the Trinity as a core doctrine - Trinity tells us who God is - and...

  • Hey New Year - Christmas is for Dreamers

    Hey New Year - Christmas is for Dreamers

    05/01/2020 Duración: 37min

    It's time for resolutions! Wouldn't it be amazing if we could summon a montage and instantly become great at that thing we've resolved to do in the new year? Unfortunately, spiritual formation isn't the work of a moment. Simeon's encounter with...

  • Time for Reflection - Christmas is for Dreamers

    Time for Reflection - Christmas is for Dreamers

    29/12/2019

    The end of a year is always a time to look back at the highs and lows of the last year. This practice has profound spiritual value as well. Isaiah shows us how looking back reveals God's pattern of salvation: God imagines new possibilities for us,...

  • Christmas Eve - Christmas is for Dreamers

    Christmas Eve - Christmas is for Dreamers

    24/12/2019

    Our Christmas Eve gathering

  • A Dream of Family - Christmas is for Dreamers

    A Dream of Family - Christmas is for Dreamers

    22/12/2019 Duración: 27min

    Holidays bring a lot of family stress. If anyone can relate, it's Joseph. Matthew tells us how God challenged Joseph to imagine a bigger definition of family than he was comfortable with - and how that changed the world forever. How can we find...
