Can't Stop the Love

May 30 2010 • Greg Boyd

When the Scandalous Love series was over, we realized that there was a lot more to be said about the love of God… and you know how long winded Greg can get. Plus, he ran out of things to say about Luke, so he was kinda nervous to get back into that book.

Sermons in this series:

The Rorschach Test

• Greg Boyd

Psychologists use Rorschach tests to reflect what is inside a person. How we see the world and even how we read Scripture works in a similar way.

Transforming Love

• Shawna Boren

Ephesians 3:14-19 is perhaps one of the most powerful descriptions of love we find in Paul’s writings. The love Paul speaks of is so great he is forced to press the boundaries of language to express it.

Topics: Love, Prayer

The Lost Party

• Greg Boyd

In the parables of the lost sheep, the lost son, and the lost coin, it becomes clear that it is we who are lost and God who seeks to find us. Those in the position of danger are the ones who presume upon their relationships with God.

Topics: Joy, Love

Breaking From Greenspan

• Greg Boyd

In the parable of the lost coin, the woman calls her friends and neighbors together to rejoice with her when she finds it. Greg explores why she was so excited to recover a single coin of seemingly limited value.

Topics: Identity in Christ, Love

Brotherly Loathe

• Greg Boyd

In the story of the prodigal son, the focus is typically on the younger son who runs away and squanders his father’s wealth frivolously. His sin is as obvious as his disobedience. The elder son is also relating badly to his father, but in a more subtle way.

Topics: Covenant, Judgment, Love

Prodigal God

• Greg Boyd

Typically, we call the famous parable by Jesus “The Prodigal Son,” but that title is actually a bit misleading. The point of the parable is not the younger (Prodigal) son’s recklessly extravagant living. Instead, it’s about God’s recklessly extravagant love.

Topics: Forgiveness, Love


"I was incredibly blessed by everyone who came out to the clean-up event to serve neighborhood seniors. It literally brought me to tears knowing that there are amazing people out there restoring my hope in what it means to love and serve each other."
