What if: Easter (Greg @ Field)

April 24, 2011

Okay, it seems that people who are trying to live like Jesus might be less stuck on what we've always done, said, been and a little more busy imagining what the world and our lives might be like if... If what? Depends on what God has put in your heart. God doesn't put things there that you already have down pat, you know. God is into possibilities, stretches, "what if's".

ALTARations: Jesus - altaring God (Dawn @ Field)

April 17, 2011

We’ve been taught that altars look like tables. Jesus altered that. They look like… him. He took a cross and gave himself on it, and what came out of that was some sort of life that is found by giving itself. And now Jesus is… in you! You’ve noticed that the things that give the most also ask the most. Whether it’s in your friendships, parenting, career or just trying to make a difference, there is always some dying in the best of living. God found no short cut – no way to have just life at no cost, neither will we. This is not easy stuff. It’s God stuff. It’s stuff we do together. Read John 2 & 19, bring your bible on Sunday. See you.

ALTARations: Peter - altaring our usability (Dawn @ Longfellow)

April 13, 2011

We’re a few weeks into the Altarations series and we’ve looked at a couple of the more interesting and challenging ‘altar’ stories in the Bible.  On April 10, we’re going to look at a story that doesn’t involve an actual altar.  So how did it make the cut for this series?  Read it ahead of time and see what you think.  It’s in John 18.15-27 and John 21.  See you soon and it would be great if you brought a friend.  It just might be life-altering!

ALTARations: Abraham - altaring whatever is most precious (Peter)

April 3, 2011

When was the last time you picked up a bible?  Maybe you made it a habit to do it regularly but more than likely it not such a regular thing, maybe not even at all.  During this “ALTARations” series we’re going to use a different story each week to find another pathway into discovering about this relationship God is trying to have with us.  If altars are where God breaks into the world and where things get changed than taking a look at the story of Abraham and Isaac is a great place to start.  In chapters 17 and 22 of Genesis we read how God changes Abraham through an unconditional promise that carries some pretty serious conditions.  God sets up a test for Abraham that results in God getting tested as well.  I invite you to come next week to hear how Abraham faithfully comes to the altar and you and I are forever blessed.
