Filling the Hysterema01/22/12

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Kingdom of God, Sacrifice, Power
  • In our culture, showing vulnerability or neediness is often seen as a weakness. Since God is all-powerful (not weak), he must not be vulnerable or need others, right? Greg suggests that if we step back from our cultural assumptions about power and weakness we may see that God's vulnerability is actually one of his greatest displays of power.

Continuing The Work Of Christ02/05/12

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd

Above The Clouds02/19/12
