The GOoD Life - Taking your Pulse (Greg)

February 26, 2012

Great music weaves around a central theme. Great stories build their plot around one idea. Great lives will one thing that guides its various strands of experience. What about your life?  How do you decide what you will do and who you will be? The Good Life doesn't just make something up or accept what society hands it, it knows what is planted mostly deeply in its heart. A planting that God seeded and waters and loves. Join us as we learn how to find that one thing and how it can create clarity in the messiness of life.

Holy Gibberish: Isaiah 62 (Dawn)

February 13, 2012

Politics are in full force these days and it seems like name-calling has become part and parcel with the process.  I'd hate to think what some of the names would be if we lived back in the time of the prophet Isaiah who named his sons 'A-Remnant-Shall-Return' and 'Spoil-Quickly-Plunder-Speedily'!  Pretty much walking billboards among the people with a message from God embedded in their very identity.  Come next Sunday as we take name-calling to a new level and dig into Isaiah Chapter 62 where you'll find that some of the name-calling has even been powerfully directed at you!

Holy Gibberish: Isaiah 55 (Greg)

February 6, 2012

As a community we have some big changes happening right now. Both of our sites are transitioning to meeting at one location and we are exploring a possible new home for that one location. We also have Nate Bergengren moving on to a new position with Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Park. Those changes take a toll on us. Isaiah spoke to Israel at a time of even greater transition. As he walked with them he reminded them of realities that were upon them, but held up the promises that awaited them and pointed them in the direction that could get them there. We have the same needs today. Isaiah chapter 55 is an example of how God does does this. As we go through these changes these next couple of weeks we'll let this chapter lead the way.
