Real Life Faith When Real Life Hurts

If we walk in close proximity to others, we will be hurt. And we will hurt them. But we don't have to give up or resort to bitterness, because we can extend and be shown mercy that flows from the cross....Keep Reading

A Girl and Her Mean Tether-ball Swing

Over the years I’ve reflected on my “tetherball career.” Perhaps I’ve gotten better and even less beatable in the 50 years since I lived off Greenbelt Road. And maybe that mean boy wasn’t as mean and snooty as I remember. But what’s real clear in my mind is what I learned from playing tetherball....Keep Reading

The Empathy of the Incarnation

We are posting the opening of Jesse's sermon today, "The Empathy of the Incarnation." It drew on recent events to set up the notion that the only way to achieve true peace with friend or foe is through empathy, perfectly modeled for us by He who did not count equality with God something to be grasped. ...Keep Reading

It's the End of the Year (As We Know It)

Ryan McLaughlin writes about the theology of Advent and what the Christmas season is actually about. Advent is a reminder that we are both looking back to when the Messiah came, and looking forward to when He's coming again. ...Keep Reading

Toward a Better Understanding of Suffering: Part 2

Eric Garrett attempts to help us arrive at a better understanding of suffering. The fact is that Jesus suffers with us, not because there is inherent value in suffering (in fact, it's part of the curse), but because He has come to redeem our suffering by suffering in our place. Jesus hates our suffering, and has provided a way out. We cannot truly understand the glory of the resurrection unless we understand the grief of suffering. ...Keep Reading

God's Masterpiece of Unified Diversity

Something unexpected happened to me on Sunday morning. While I was preparing to teach for our children's ministry, Truth Miners, I was struck by the profundity of the passage I was about to teach from. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how God reveals to both young and old the same truths in profound ways. I was so affected by what I studied that I want to share some thoughts about the passage with you. The passage I taught from is 1 Corinthians 12, and my thoughts center on what God is doing when He masterfully blends unity and diversity together through His people, the church....Keep Reading

Longing For a Culture of Grace

There is something that's been on my heart about the life of our church (and others) for some time. Although I've discussed it briefly in various contexts I've never really sat down to try and succinctly articulate what it is...here it goes. I hope this turns out to be helpful for you. Week in and week out, as we gather together to lift up our Savior with one voice as a church family there is something I long to see brought to maturity in our midst. It's something that's "thereish", but not really there yet. The best way I believe I've heard this expressed is with the idea of a culture of grace. As the body of Christ, I long for us to be part of a culture that exudes grace to all who are in our midst....Keep Reading

Counseling: The Gospel for the Details

So far this series, we’ve discussed how the gospel is more than a reference point for ministry, and we have seen how that shapes our approach to preaching. This week, we discuss how that affects our approach to counseling....Keep Reading

Preaching More Than Moralism

Last week, we looked at the gospel as Scripture’s paradigm for ministry in general. Today, we are looking at the gospel as Scripture’s paradigm for preaching for interpreting and applying God’s Word for God’s people on God’s terms....Keep Reading

More Than a Reference Point

If you've been around the church world long enough, you've probably heard someone somewhere talk about being "gospel-centered" - gospel-centered preaching, gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered counseling, gospel-centered everything. And you've probably had one of a number of reactions to these pretentious-sounding assertions of unique commitment to the gospel reactions that range from indignance at the implications regarding apparently non-gospel-centered churches and ministries to amusement at what sounds like an awfully simplistic approach to life and ministry. I initially reacted with a little of both and a lot of everything in between. I was at first a little confused at what people meant and why they were so adamant about it. But the more I learned, the more it made sense to me, and the more I liked it...until finally I decided “gospel-centered,” as a term, is just too small to capture what people are saying, that the relationship between the gospel and ministry is much more robust than mere centeredness. But before I explain what I think the gospel is to ministry, let me explain the idea of gospel-centeredness....Keep Reading
