I remember a table conversation at one of the last dinners of my dad’s life. One of his grandsons was speculating on what it would feel like to be so wealthy that you knew you’d never run out of money in your lifetime. My dad had been a successful businessman earlier in life and his life was quickly coming to an end, so he fell into the category. Dad said money wasn’t all that it’s cracked up to be; when it comes to being rich, there are more important commodities than money. Beginning Easter Sunday, we’ll talk about the things that make us truly rich. I hope you can make it!
Perhaps social media offers the greatest potential and the greatest threat to the Christian message in this day and age. It’s potential lies in the ability to get the good news out to many people with a few swipes and taps on a phone. It’s threat lies in the relational insulation it offers. How do we follow Jesus in a “selfie” world?
In 55 years, fantasy sports leagues have blown up in popularity. Fans can pick their favorite players and compete against each other based on the player’s daily or weekly performances. What would it look like if we substituted fantasy faith players from the Bible for fantasy football players? Beginning February 5th, we’ll do just that! I hope you will join us as we explore what made these women and men of faith so great.
A careful reading of the Gospels (Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John) shows that Jesus often chose to answer a question with a question. Jesus’ questions challenged the mindset and motivation of those who questioned him 2000 years ago and it does so even today. Beginning January 8th, we’ll talk about four different questions Jesus asked and how they answer the questions we have about life and faith.
