In Portland as it is in Heaven. All teachings are available to stream and download at bridgetown.church.
Love is the Measure
From the series "Gospel of Matthew." In this well-known but little-understood teaching of Jesus, we discover that love is the measure of spiritual maturity. Nothing else. And that Jesus’s definition of love is very different from that of our host culture. Yet again, Jesus’ life and vision is incredibly compelling and offers us a new way to be human.
Render unto Caesar
From the series "Gospel of Matthew." Jesus is confronted by those who seek to trap him. His response is not only genius but offers a new theonomy and way of doing money.
Believing Amidst Disappointment
From the series "Gospel of Matthew." As we look at the story of Jesus coming into Jerusalem, we learn that moving through our disappointment uproots our limited human perspective and allows us to openhandedly receive the greater good that God is after.
Part 10: A Community of Justice, Mercy, and Peace in a Culture of Social Darwinism
From the series "Future Church." In the life of Jesus, we discover three ways in which He brings His people into the Kingdom of God; mercy, justice, and peace. How can we find the pressure points in Portland to be people of justice?
Part 9: Future Church for the Future World
From the series "Future Church." For Easter, we examine the "gospel" of Jesus for what it is: good news. About something that happened in the past that has changed our present and altered the trajectory of our future forever.
Part 8: A Community of Rest in a Culture of Exhaustion
From the series "Future Church." Our culture keeps us in the cycle of exhaustion, burnout and spiritual death. As a church community our desire is to become a culture of rest as a prophetic witness to the promise of rest that Jesus brings to us. In this teaching we explore the practice of Sabbath and how it habituates us towards the rest our souls need.
The Daily’s were one of the highlights of this past year for me. Thank you for putting in the time and energy to putting them out. I miss them a lot but also really enjoy your sermons!
I used to really enjoy listening to these podcasts. John Mark has a lot of knowledge to impart but unfortunately has fell into believing the lies of the media this past year. He claims to be a centrist, but that only means you trust the lies of BLM Marxism and believe that police are targeting black men in the streets. Liberal ideologies are not aligned with the Bible no matter how much of a “centrist” you claim to be. Praying for a revival in our churches.
This is amazing. Thank you.
