Character Is Destiny

• Greg Boyd

We become what we practice. We practice what we imagine is the goal of where we are going. As Christ followers, we are to set the goal of living in love so that we can practice love to become more loving.

Topics: Discipleship, Love


The Point of It All

• Greg Boyd

God calls us to replicate the love of the cross instead of passing judgment upon others. We do this as we live into the reality of our inclusion in God’s love and our identity in Christ, as part of the Triune, cruciform love that God is.

Topics: Judgment, Love, Power


Our Central Mandate

• Greg Boyd

In this introductory sermon to the “Cross Examination” series, Greg lays out the all-important challenge to live in love in the way that is defined by Christ on the cross. This sermon also details how this mandate to love goes against the grain of our culture which is dominated by divisiveness and judgment.

Topics: Judgment, Love, Politics


Food, Clothing & Dinosaurs

• Emily Morrison

Jesus tells us not to worry, but what does this mean in a world full of worry-causing circumstances? How can we not be anxious when there are so many troubling issues that we face? This teaching addresses what it means to trust God in anxious times to the point that we know that Jesus is with us as we face our worries.

Topics: Pain & Suffering, Presence of God


A Different Kind of Hope

• Greg Boyd

The world around us is wrought with pain and suffering. Amidst this reality it can often be difficult to find a sense of hope. To fully appreciate the incomprehensible glory that is going to be revealed to us, we first need to appreciate the full magnitude of the sufferings of this present age. As we engage with the painful news of our world, we turn our eyes to the coming hope that is grounded in the resurrected Christ. *Please note that due to Greg being sick on Easter, we re-used his message from 2018 for this year's service.

Topics: Hope, Kingdom of God, Peace, Resurrection


The Liturgy of Abundance

• Osheta Moore

Scarcity drives common daily experiences in our world, yet God invites us to trust his ability to abundantly provide. In this sermon, Osheta Moore offers us a liturgy of abundance so that we can embrace God’s abundance in the midst of scarcity.

Topics: Blessings, Discipleship, Generosity


Opting Out (Of the Mammon Game)

• Greg Boyd

How do we find freedom from the allure of mammon? In this sermon, Greg offers three practical steps for discovering contentment in God so that we are free from the discontentment that drives the Mammon Game.

Topics: Discipleship, Money


Fireproof Treasure

• Greg Boyd

At the end of time, we will come before God in judgment, where God’s love will refine and purge. Jesus taught us to live today with this future in mind by investing in treasures that will endure the fire instead of investing in that which will burn because they are not compatible with God’s love.

Topics: End Times, Judgment, Transformation
