Finding the Word in the Words

• Osheta Moore

Osheta continues our look at 'loose ends' of scripture that often get overlooked or dismissed because of their seeming exclusiveness and contradiction. This week’s installment examines Jesus’ comments about parables and why they were one of his key methods of teaching. At the heart of it all is the question of who the Kingdom of God is for, and what is being asked of us to enter in to it.

Topics: Controversial Issues, God's Will, Kingdom of God


Your Attention Please!

• Sandra Unger

This week in the sermon series Loose Ends, our friend Dr. Sandra Unger explores the often quoted Psalm, “be still and know that I am God.” Sandra shares what the command to be still means in the Biblical context and how paying attention to God changes our whole approach to life.

Topics: Faith, Transformation


Must We Submit To Government?

• Greg Boyd

This week Greg taught on Romans 13, a Scripture that has been in the news recently when Attorney General Jeff Sessions used it as basis for why the American government is separating children from their families at the southern border. This passage, although helpful for us to understand how to respect the authority of earthly government in matters of polices, law and order, is not the final word for Kingdom people on how we should live.

Topics: Controversial Issues, Kingdom of God, Nationalism


When Yahweh Shows Up To Eat You

• Greg Boyd

In this sermon we continue our look in to scripture passages that often get dismissed because of their obscurity, seeming contradiction, or relative weirdness. This week Greg examined Exodus 4:19-28 which describes a strange encounter Moses and Zipporah had with God on their way from Midian to Egypt involving threat of death, circumcision, and the smearing of blood. This encounter, although interpreted through a warped view of God’s character, foreshadows the Passover later in Exodus as well as the spiritual circumcision available to all through Christ.

Topics: Baptism, Calling, Faith, Judgment


A Lethal Lord’s Supper

• Greg Boyd

Today we started our new summer series called Loose Ends, which works to "make sense of the verses we skip". Since we shared communion together this week, we focused on a strange verse related to communion -- 1 Corinthians 11:27-32.

Topics: Communion, Controversial Issues


Master vs. Master

• Greg Boyd

Our culture tells us that success means gaining more money and more possessions. But the Kingdom that Jesus summons us into rejects this system. In the second week of our “Nothing to Lose” series, Greg shows us that in God’s Kingdom, our treasure is stored up when we give it away.

Topics: Generosity, Greed, Kingdom of God, Money


The Treasure of Contentment

• Greg Boyd

In this first sermon in our new 'Nothing to Lose' series, we explore contentment and generosity. We are constantly bombarded with advertisements and not so subtle innuendo that we should be discontent with what we have. This environment we find ourselves in strongly challenges the kingdom call to live out of a center of contentment and cultivate a heart full of generosity. In this message we explore what the Bible says about these topics as well as how they apply to our 21st century setting.

Topics: Faithfulness, Generosity, Greed


Judgment Seat of Christ

• Greg Boyd

In previous weeks we discussed the evidence that our consciousness persists in the interim stage between death and resurrection. But what exactly goes on there, before resurrection? Are we made perfect and pure enough to enter the kingdom instantly, or do we have to continue our growth in Christ?

Topics: Discipleship, Heaven, Hell, Transformation
