Three Cords

The big revelation in the Bible is that God is not just some self-absorbed divine being living in the heavenlies, or some impersonal spirit to be “tapped into” for strength and wisdom. Instead, God is a Person (actually a Community of three Persons), who is all about relationship and who desires to have one with every one of us. God desires to be that “third strand” in each of our relationships that makes them unbreakable. Let’s see what that means…

Navigating Conflict

There is no doubt that God has designed, created, and re-created each one of us in Christ in amazing ways. But as amazing as we may be individually, together, as the Church, we are stunning! Together, we reveal nothing less than the glory of God. Let’s be the Church.

Did I Hear You Right?

We are in a language-centric world. Language matters. What we say, how we say it, and the context behind what we say can help us or hurt us. What happens in a marriage, a friendship, or in a work environment when we use language against the other - or when that language loses its meaning between the speaker and the hearer. In part 3 of Relationships That Last, we are going to ask the question: Did I Hear You Right?

Seeing Greatness

Where do we see greatness? In ourselves? In others? And how accurate are we when it comes to evaluating greatness? Inaccuracy towards ourselves brings pride, fear and ultimately isolation. Blindness towards the greatness of others brings disdain, hatred and oppression. So, how can we have clear vision in seeing greatness? Let’s talk about that…

Wired for Relationships

For six days in Genesis, God created the world; the land, the seas, the animals, the fish, the light, the sky. At the end of each day He said that what He made was good. Only after He made Adam and saw that he was alone did He say that it was not good! We were made to be in relationship with others in family, in friendship, in community. Let’s see what God had in mind when He made us.

The Best Part of Together

God is forming us into a new community that makes His heart known to this world through the life that we live, not just as individuals, but also as His new community. So, what does that life look like? Let find out together.

The Power of Us

There is no doubt that God has designed, created, and re-created each one of us in Christ in amazing ways. But as amazing as we may be individually, together, as the Church, we are stunning! Together, we reveal nothing less than the glory of God. Let’s be the Church.

Reminders of Hope

Whenever God would do something amazing for Israel, they would set up a monument of stones to remember. Subsequently, the land of Israel was full of these reminder stones. God has also done amazing things for us. How do we remember? Let’s find ways of making our own “reminder stones” to celebrate God’s goodness to us.

Finding the Power of Prayer

Prayer is not just throwing our best wishes up to heaven, hoping God will grant some of them. Rather, prayer is intentionally calling things in heaven and on earth into alignment with God and His purposes. So how do we do this? What are the components of the kind of prayer that actually changes things? Let’s find out together.

With Jesus

Our prayers do not effect change because we pray “good enough.” Our prayer changes heaven and earth because when we pray, we join with Jesus in His work through His prayer and intercession for this world. Let’s learn what it means to be with Jesus in prayer.
