Our weekly message for Sunday Night gathering in SE Portland, Oregon.
We belong to Jesus first, as God hears our cries and finds us in our isolation.
A compassion for others should start for us where it started with Jesus–deep within...and It should cause us to move.
As we look into 2021, let's reevaluate our priorities so we are prepared to step into the new thing that God is doing in our lives.
Sometimes we impose our idea of worldly authority onto the one true King. It's time we allow the gospel to breathe fresh life into the authority of Jesus. Authority through healing, healing through suffering.
Advent is about the arrival of Jesus, and that arrival happened in the most unexpected ways. Everything about Jesus was unexpected, therefore we are called to the follow in the ministry of the unexpected.
When we participate in waiting for advent - the arrival of Jesus - we sometimes feel like we're going nowhere fast.
