Talking In Code (Natalia Terfa 3/18/18)

March 19, 2018

It feels like Jesus is talking in some kind of secret code in this Gospel lesson. Everyone is confused. His disciples are having a hard time interpreting him, so are the people gathering around him, and if we’re honest, so are we! Let’s try to unlock exactly what Jesus is talking about here, and how this confusing passage is really good news.

The Good Stuff (Chad Brekke 3/11/18)

March 12, 2018

The gospel is always under assault. From cheap grace, to meeting God half way, to prosperity preaching, our efforts to remake the good news in our own image are relentless. Today God hits us with a combination for which there is no defense. Today God leaves a mark.

Garbage Day (Natalia Terfa 3/4/18)

March 5, 2018

Both Paul and Jesus give us a pretty clear and harsh reminder of what life in the Kingdom of God cannot be and cannot look like. What do these stories teach us today? Is there a place for this kind of anger and garbage removal in the church today?

Losing My Religion (Chad Brekke 2/25/18)

February 26, 2018

Jesus is quite public about what it will mean for him to be the messiah. It will involve suffering, rejection and even death. But faith is a private thing, right? So Peter takes Jesus aside to discuss the finer points of theology. Bad idea! Today we all might learn something.

Hopeless Wanderer (Natalia Terfa 2/18/18)

February 19, 2018

So often we think of Jesus in the wilderness as the ultimate “how to” about withstanding temptation. Just quote the Bible and you’ll be ok. But what if the inclusion of this story in the Gospels isn’t about how it happens but where it happens? Let’s dig a little deeper...
