Begin Again

St. Benedict (c.480-547AD) said, "Always we begin again." At the start of a new year, we do that literally. Matthew Watson talks about the invitation that God extends to us over the coming months and how we might accept -- and participate. [Ephesians 3:14-4:1]

Making Room for Peace

Jesus came to bring peace, shalom, not just the absence of conflict but the wholeness of relationship with God, with others, with nature and systems, and with ourselves. Matthew Watson walks us through how each of the characters in the nativity point to the peace of God. [Jeremiah 33:14-16]

Making Room for Joy

On the third Sunday of Advent, before Kids City led us in joyful worship by enacting the Nativity, Andrea Ackermann talked about how we might make room for joy -- not counterfeit joy, which is really an escape, but real joy, which can stand alongside all of the difficulty and trouble of our lives. [Matthew 2:1-2]

Making Room for Love

Looking at the story of Joseph and Mary, Marisa Stubbs encourages us to remember the love of God and challenges us to make room for it. [Matthew 1:18-25]

Making Room for Hope

On the first Sunday of Advent, we look at hope and how we make room for hope by remembering what's already been done. Matthew Watson also led us in a time of giving thanks, the practical outworking of hope. [Luke 2:1-20]

Lisa Watson closes out The Gospel of John: A Story of Life by looking at the opposition Jesus faced and the invitation he offered—and continues to offer. [John 10:22-42]

The Good Shepherd

This week, several storytellers from our community share their responses to Jesus' statement that he is the Good Shepherd, and we as listeners are invited to the creative, collaborative process, considering our response to the prompt "The Good Shepherd is like ..." [John 10:1-18]

What to Do with Suffering

In John 9, Jesus heals a man who was born blind. Justin Fung examines how this encounter offers an opportunity to look at what God's life looks like in the midst of our lives — and in the face of suffering, in particular. [John 9]

(How) The Truth Will Set You Free

"The truth will set you free." We may be familiar with the saying. But what did Jesus mean when he said it, and how will it happen? Guest preacher Aaron Niequist, liturgist and author of The Eternal Current: How a Practice-Based Faith Can Save Us from Drowning, shares about the importance of actually doing what Jesus said. [John 8:31-38]
