Real People: What I learned running a restaurant (Peter)

May 20, 2012

When I was 15, I walked from the kitchen and into the dining room of the restaurant for the first time.  Who knew then that a part-time job as a busboy, setting tables and clearing plates would lead to a career in hospitality?  Along the way I've encountered thousands of co-workers and hundreds of thousands of guests and expect that each one of them has affected me in ways big and small.  Fifteen years ago, I opened the doors of my own restaurant and now I can't help but wonder how this experience has shaped me for the next phase of my life.  God has been doing some pretty amazing things all along and in the process I've picked up a few insights that might be worth passing on. Sunday will be my last time preaching as an intern at Jacob's Well so I'd like to invite you into my world for a little while and see what we might discover together. ~Peter

Real People: What I learned from real life (Dawn and guests)

May 17, 2012

Believe it or not, the people in the Bible were realpeople who had no idea they were going to be "Bible people" or that there was even going to be a Bible. And what they learned came from real life. Most of what we need to know comes to us inreal life too. Starting May 13 we're going to take a month of Sundays and forget what we learned in seminary and church and talk about the life shaking and shaping stuff we learned where we might least (but ought to most) expect it. What's God showing you inreal life?

Whatever is beautiful and excellent (Greg)

May 8, 2012

This line from Philippians 4.8 calls us to surround ourselves with beauty and to be points of excellence - who wouldn't agree with that? But what about all the not-so-beautiful around us? And as for being excellent, isn't that for the 1%, not the 99% that most of us are? It's time to dive deeply into what God sees in these two virtues and how we wrap our lives around them. Beauty and excellence can change the world. They can change you.

Whatever is pure (Greg)

May 3, 2012

"Pure?!? You've got to be kidding! I mean, no one is in favor of IMpure, butpure is so... um, Victorian. Sure I want my food, air and water to bepure, but me?" I have a feeling that lots of people react this way to this topic. So what do you think? Isit worth a look past the moralizing that typifies this conversation to what God might have in mind? Maybe it's worth a look past our own defenses to see what God has in mind. Funny, 'pure' might be something we're actually looking for.
