Why bother with people? (Greg @ Field)

June 27, 2011

The short answer is, 'because God does.' Jacob's Well is not your typical church (understatement), in part because we feel it is our job to do more than take care of the people already here; us. In fact we have this feeling deep down in our guts that the only way to really take care of the people who are here is to be fundamentally about the people who aren't here. Not yet anyway... It's a Jesus thing. It fights our instincts. It makes us worry about whether our needs are going to be met. It's faith.

Why bother with trying? (Greg @ Field)

June 22, 2011

“I’m a good person. I don’t lie and cheat. I treat people fairly and give money to charities. I love my family. I’m not perfect, but who is? So isn’t that enough?” You’ve heard it, maybe said it. So why does God expect all this other stuff. Praying, reading the Bible, serving, worshipping, It’s all a lot of work none of us have time for and face it, Christians haven’t fixed the world that way anyway. Why bother even trying? It’s a good question.

(No Audio) Why bother with church? (Greg @ Minnehaha Falls)

June 12, 2011

This message was presented at Minnehaha Falls Park and was not recorded.

Things come and go. Vinyl, tape, CDs, mp3. Town criers, newspapers, internet. What about church? Your grandparents did it. Your parents might have… but isn’t it one of those things that had its day and now the baton has been passed? Most people don’t bother with church anymore. Should you? Do you? If we’re just trying to ride a dead horse then maybe it’s time to dismount. But if the problem isn’t that the church is dead, but the way we are church, then let’s figure that out and be that kind of church.

Why bother with God (Greg @ Field)

June 6, 2011

We just spent a month asking “what if…?” but that’s not the only question that matters. We also need to remember why we’re doing what we’re doing and ask if it really makes any difference. Afterall it takes a lot of work and you’ve only got one life to spend. During the month of June we are going to get back to the basics. Remember who we are, what God has in mind for us and how we can do that the best. Join us and get excited about:

Why bother with God? Why bother with church? Why bother with trying? Why bother with people?

It’s God’s vision and our lives. At work. Together.
