Sermon on the Mount

Jul 26 2020 • Greg Boyd

When Jesus started preaching, he announced there was a new Kingdom in town and everyone was welcome to join. But what exactly was he inviting them to? In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus lays out God’s vision for a whole new kind of world. In a way this sermon is his manifesto, his charter, his declaration for a new way of life. But it’s far more surprising, beautiful and astonishing than any human system could ever be. Over the next several months, we’re taking a deep dive into the kind of world that comes to life when Jesus followers bring God’s Kingdom to earth as it is in heaven.

Character Is Destiny

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
