The Church Gives Us...

A Place to Stop

In case anyone is wondering about our purpose as disciples in a church… Jesus has some very defining instructions.

Lessons learned from scripture

Et ligula sit quam, sapien lorem. Nec risus lorem vestibulum mi facilisis. Tincidunt urna accumsan nec, risus fermentum ut vestibulum, maecenas luctus viverra, tortor nulla et tellus quam. Neque facilisis donec eget sagittis eligendi dapibus, vulputate sapien praesent. Commodo felis curabitur placerat wisi tellus, cum etiam leo, feugiat sodales blandit ultricies est ultrices.

Risus ipsum commodo eveniet pede nulla, sed fusce sed eget, sit augue mauris feugiat, erat facilisis nibh ligula ante, feugiat fermentum ut facilisi dolor quis. Semper faucibus ullamcorper sed pulvinar ut, arcu magna, at elementum. Rhoncus rutrum dictum at pariatur donec, non nulla, pellentesque.

 

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, cursus tellus nec neque posuere massa nec, vel consectetuer fusce erat. Metus ante donec est diam id, non diam urna justo, vel vitae porttitor nam vehicula duis, mus magnis, cupiditate pharetra phasellus.

 

Man turning pages of Bible with light coming from pages.

Rhoncus rutrum dictum at pariatur donec, non nulla, pellentesque ipsum odio gravida aliquam et nibh, egestas faucibus sollicitudin, et nulla dictum proin neque at lorem. Vulputate volutpat ullamcorper blandit lectus tellus. Diam ut, orci amet. Ac donec tortor tincidunt lorem. 

Beatitudes

How should we regard these instructions? Some folks have determined these are a “to-do” list to accomplish to earn blessings… like putting dimes in a gum ball machine. What shall we do with the opening of Jesus’ first public sermon?

Bearing the Marks of Discipleship

Becoming more like Jesus comes at a cost, real consequences resulting from our being less willing to allow anyone other than God tell us who we are.

The Big Top on Human Sexuality

We walk through a very deep examination of what the bible says about all of human sexuality… and surprise… it doesn’t say what our cultural religion says it does! The willingness to do violence to the biblical text to make it support an extraneous agenda is also addressed.

The Odd Thing We Do To Scripture At Christmas

We are so practiced in our practices and anxious to get to Christmas that we gallop right past what scripture teaches about the depth of our preparation.

Dis-Ease, Anxiety And Discipleship

Anxiety is a hot topic in our culture right now… a lot of words that seem to suggest having anxiety is abnormal or out of line or a sign there is something wrong with you… and that healthy, faithful people are always at ease and tranquil. We’re going to pay attention to scripture passages which include anxiety as part of a larger, unfolding story and see what those passages might say to us. (Hint: There is nothing wrong with having anxiety and healthy, faithful people are not always tranquil.)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
