Thoughts on Isaiah 11:1-10

During Advent we have invited the artists among us to help us experience what it means to live in a world made new. Katelyn Lamb shared this original poem during our service Sunday, December 4. It'd be like a zoo with no walls Or forgiveness without a pause. It'll be summer that never grows to fall Or love given without a cause It will be utter and mighty belonging for th...

A Corporate Confession

On Sunday, July 10, our congregation prayed this corporate confession together. In confessing our sin, both individual and corporate, may we find freedom and forgiveness. In receiving God's grace, may we find the joy and hope of transformation. And as we are made more like Christ, may we join the work of Christ, so that our world may be healed. Gracious God, we your Churc...

Pastor Chris's Notes from Vacation: Our Father, Kevin Durant, Economics, and Violence in Baton Rouge

I've been on vacation this week. It's the first vacation I've had since we started the new church. While on vacation, I try to unplug; see how far I can get off the grid. It's important for me to put my burdens down for a bit and rest. I've struggled putting them down this time. I love my church. I love my city. I think that's why I'm burdened. Since I've been gone, a l...

Usually, we think of it in regards to the duties of everyday life (kids to feed, chores to do, bills to pay), but in light of the events over the last couple of days, it has taken on a more serious and literal meaning. In Ordinary Time, we remember that this is the ordinary way of the world: Bullies have their way...

A Theology of Space, Matter, & Time: Part 1

In Acts, Luke gives insight into the days after Jesus' resurrection. For forty days he instructs the apostles after revealing that he was actually alive. He talks about the Kingdom of God constantly and he says something amazing is going to happen. Jesus says that in just a few days they were going to receive power. Great power. Unleashed power. Power that doesn't come fr...
