In addition to sermon audio and video files, many of our sermons have other resources available like extended summaries and study guides. Our archive dates back to 1992 and all resources are free to download and distribute. Most sermons are by our Senior Pastor, Greg Boyd.
Since God is all-powerful and completely good, isn’t God going to do all the good things we might pray for anyway? Why pray for those things, then. Greg showed from Scripture that God chooses our prayers as a means of getting things done that otherwise will not happen if we do not pray!
In the game of Freeze Tag, when a person is touched by a member of the opposite team, he or she is “frozen” and cannot move. The only way to be set free is to have a member of your own team touch you. It is similar with the soul. When we are “touched” in some traumatic way, we become frozen. When the soul is touched in a way that God never meant it to be touched
Have you ever read the Song of Solomon? Christians have always understood this book to be about the love relationship between God and us. Yet it’s full of romantic language. Greg continued his series on prayer by talking about prayer as romancing the Lord.
Many people feel they have to use a special religious language when they pray to God. They speak in King James English rather than their own common tongue. But people in the Bible talked to God in their common language and spoke to God with raw honesty.
