War and Peace05/22/16

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Non-Violence, Spiritual Warfare, Conflict
  • In this first message of the Flesh and Blood series, Greg dives in to relational conflict by properly defining kingdom peace and kingdom war. We live in a fallen creation whose inhabitants too often reflect the ideals of the enemy rather than participating in the triune God’s invitation to reflect His perfect love to each other. The principalities and powers play us off one another creating human enemies, but in reality the battle is not against flesh and blood. We were created to fight and protect, just not against each other.

Passionless Hope05/09/16

  • Speaker – Jessica Kelley
     
  • Topics – Hope, Pain & Suffering, God's Will
  • This message examines Christian hope and how we are called to prophetically speak hope into seemingly hopeless situations. While hope is vital, certain understandings of God’s character and role in radical suffering can leave victims of trauma with passionless hope. But when our picture of God is rooted solidly in the revelation of Jesus, it is possible to have a passionate faith, regardless of the circumstances.

Do Justice05/01/16

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Kingdom of God, Politics, Justice
  • This third sermon in our Love. Walk. Do. series focuses on the importance of doing justice. There is always a danger in attempting to find solutions to justice issues with the political system where all solutions are ambiguous in nature. We are called to actively DO justice in our church and communities as a sign-post of the beautiful Kingdom of God because all of humanity has unsurpassable worth.

Walk Humbly04/24/16

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Kingdom of God, Transformation, Humility
  • We all want a place at the top. A place of prominence and authority. From the story of Esau and Jacob, to James and John, to me and to you, the desire for a place at the top can frequently be seen. But for Jesus, a position at the “top of the Kingdom” can only be found through humility.

Love Mercy04/17/16

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Grace, Kingdom of God, Humility
  • In this first message of the Love. Walk. Do. sermon series, Greg tackles the first portion of the prophet Micah’s depiction of what God requires of us – to love mercy. Loving mercy means loving it when people don’t get the negative consequences they deserve. If justice is about collecting a debt, then loving mercy is about hating debt collecting. In a very counter cultural depiction of the Kingdom of God, Greg examines how we can’t truly love mercy until we realize the extent to which we depend on it from God.

Rediscover Faith04/10/16

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Faith
  • A popular view of faith is as an absence of doubt. But Greg shows us why this view not only is a barrier to new believers, but is also a dangerous way of doing faith.
