If you’re a follower of Jesus you are part of a blended family. You have your biological or adopted family and you also have a spiritual family. Both families impact us in different ways, and both leave us with baggage for better or worse. Making these two work together can be dicey. In this series, we’ll discuss ways we have been shaped by our families, and ways in which our spiritual family can bring healing to the wounds created by our earthly families.
Sermons in this series:
We wrapped up our Blended sermon series with a Q&A hosted by Greg Boyd, Sandra Unger and Kevin Callaghan. The audio and video media files, as well as the YouTube video, contain questions and answers from all three of our services on November 24/25, 2018.
This weekend, David wrapped up our Blended series with his sermon in which he modeled how we might unearth our roots, so that we might move forward in Jesus.
In the life of a Jesus follower, there is clear power in testimony. It has the ability to break down walls of mental defensiveness and justification, and speak directly to the deepest parts of another’s heart. We all carry wounds around with us as a result of the gap between what we needed and what we actually received. In this message Greg shares some of his personal journey in healing from the wounds passed on to him from his family.
Today Sandra affirms that you don't have to have suffered awful abuse or trauma in order to have stuff that you need to heal from. We all have baggage from our past, so she shares five strategies for healing.
In this sermon of our Blended series, David talks about what we may inherit from our biological ancestors, how these attributes may have shaped the lives of future generations, and how to love our families for who they are, just as God loves us.
Greg starts off the first sermon of our new series titled Blended by examining how to scripturally navigate our biological and spiritual family systems.
