When God Shows Up

Dec 01 2018 • Greg Boyd, Shane Claiborne

In this six-week Christmas sermon series, we focus on the way God entered a messy world so that he could enter into our messy lives. We will explore how he showed up unexpectedly in the form of a child, and how he continues to manifest himself in unexpected ways at unexpected times. At this time of year, we remember how God’s intimate involvement in our world and in our lives changes everything.

Who Shows Up?

• Greg Boyd

In many ways Jesus, and the kingdom he established, was anti-king of all kings. The holiness he embodied was guided by love, not law. Instead of using his kingship to separate himself from the unclean, lowly and hurting in the world, Jesus made his home right in the middle of our pain and our sin. This was unbelievably good news back then and today for all those who are hurting, needy, lonely, sinful or poor. God desires to make his residence in us, just as we are.

Topics: Christmas, Identity in Christ, Kingdom of God, Power


"I have battled anxiety for years, searching for something to help me overcome fear. I believe that through your sermons, I have found truth and I am more convinced of the extravagant love of God than ever. I finally feel like I am on the journey out of the darkness."

– Amanda, from Nebraska
