During this week we consider how we might work to find commonality — a transformative work that can lead us to greater compassion for our enemy/other, and even the possibility of collaboration.
This week we lean into Luke 10:25-35 and Christena Cleveland’s book, Disunity in Christ, to consider the ways we categorize each other, how it causes so much damage, and a possible alternative as we work to live into God’s new humanity.
Last week we considered our shared identity as a starting point for loving our enemies. This week, we build on that identity by considering the call to humility. What does humility look like? What might we do and say if we embodied humility more greatly?
A new series begins this week. Together, we’re asking questions and seeking answers to how we can embody the new humanity that Christ set in motion through his life, death and resurrection. We’re not sure there’s anything more relevant or important in our crazy, hostile and divided world. Ephesians 2:14-15 and Genesis 1:26-28
Our final week considering Matthew 11:28-30. Today we ask ourselves what it would look like to more closely walk with, work with and watch Jesus in order to learn his way and put on his yoke.
We continue our look at Matthew 11:28-30 considering what the metaphor of a yoke might mean for us in our lives today.
We begin our month long look at Matthew 11:28-30 – three well known verses that perhaps offer us precisely what we need at this moment. But the invitation must be received. We must first admit that we are in need of rest.
Four years ago, the Herrbolts moved from Laramie, WY, to Grand Rapids with a number of expectations and hopes. As it turned out, many of those were not met or fulfilled. What do we do when this happens? When we feel that we are being obedient or God is calling us to something or we […]
Our Story series continues this week with the story of two of our young people. Terra Workman and Sophia Ferenczi both have a passion for climate justice. They share here where this passion started and how they see this work through the lens of their faith. Listen and hear how God is working in and […]
Listen as we tell the story of one family’s trip to Uganda. In that trip, they learned more about themselves and more about the women who live there. They noticed what God is doing in Uganda, and in their own lives here at home. This is their story.
We consider the need for awe and wonder in our lives, and how it can help us find our purpose and place in the world.
Elliot leads us in a conversation on quantum mechanics. Yep. You heard right. We consider how something like a photon, which is both a wave and a particle, might help us think differently about many things in our complex world.
Elliot leads us through the incredible process of a star’s death, which gives way to the building blocks of life. This awe-inspiring cycle is what we see throughout creation. Life coming after loss and death. Resurrection. What might this mean for us in our day to day lives?
We begin a four week series looking at incredible aspects of creation, and what they have to teach us about our lives together. This first week’s takeaway: Don’t be a Western Cedar. Note: the first few minutes were not recorded. You can find more about the research we talked about at first by watching this […]
We took a week to look at a story we have likely heard of before from Luke 9: the feeding of the 5000 and what it might have to say to us in this moment.
