The Rest of the Story

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

“Jesus died, was buried, and rose again.”

We know the “death” part of the story well. And we know the “rose again” part of the story. But few Christians know the “buried” part well.

The New Testament teaches that, after his death and before his resurrection, Jesus descended into Hell. In this Easter Sunday sermon, we explore the significance of that part of the passion story and, from it, draw two powerful practical conclusions.

Misfits Wanted

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

Have you seen the classic Christmas program, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer? If so, you’re familiar with the Island of Misfit Toys, home of the ostrich-riding cowboy and the train with square wheels.

This Sunday is Palm Sunday, and we’re taking a look at a little-examined character from the familiar palm-procession story: the donkey Jesus rode into Jerusalem. He was a “misfit” too, but was needed by Jesus at this crucial time.

Listen or watch as we look at how we can find our purpose and mission — how we can be needed by God, misfits though we are.

Messy Spirituality

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

Have you ever thought, “I must not be a very good Christian. Everybody else is so together — and I’m just a mess.”

Well, guess what — God knows what a mess we all can be. Listen or watch as we wrestle with the idea that there’s no need to pretend before God, or hold back — we can come as we are.

Angels Watchin’ Over Me

Sunday, March 2nd, 2008

Do you have a guardian angel? It’s a nice idea, but what should thoughtful people believe? What does the Bible say?

And maybe even more importantly, why should I care? What does this possibility mean for me? Listen or watch for a message that’s both thought-provoking, and full of practical encouragement.
