In Portland as it is in Heaven. All teachings are available to stream and download at bridgetown.church.
In this four part Bridgetown Daily special, we will lean into the season of Advent. Exploring the traditional themes of love, joy, peace, and hope. Listen along weekly for an overview and exploration of each theme.
Middle of the Mess
From "Advent 2020." Christmas is the reality that God shows up in the mess and therefore Christmas means God loves you.
Shake It Off
Christine Caine preaches from the life of Paul and encourages us to live in the moment even if it comes with difficulty.
Grace and God's Generous Justice
From the series "Gospel of Matthew." The upside down reality of the Kingdom of Heaven is that it is marked by grace and justice. The two collide and are defined for the apprentice of Jesus in the Parable of the workers in the Vineyard. In this parable he reiterates a central tenant of life in the Kingdom; that the last will be first.
Part 6: A Pastoral Word on the Election & Politics
From "Vision Series 2020." Following the 2020 election, with its disputed result and our divided nation, we offer a pastoral word on how to follow Jesus through the coming season.
A Prayer for Election Day
Listen to a short pastoral word, the reading of a Psalm, and a moment of prayer for the peace and prosperity of our nation during this Election Day.

Balm to my soul
Early in the spring of this year, someone I follow on Instagram shared a screen shot of a podcast called Bridgetown Daily. The episode was about breath prayers. I was immediately intrigued and haven’t stopped listening since. John Mark, Bethany and all the incredibly kind, gentle, wise, thoughtful leaders at Bridgetown became like my shepherds during Covid when my own home church, although gospel-centered, was focusing on facts, data and trying to get everyone back to church ASAP. Would Bridgetown consider planting a church in Omaha, NE please?! (Kidding, not kidding)
The episode on holy uncertainty had me weeping in my kitchen. The episode on Psalm 23 from this spring, was on repeat pretty much daily for weeks. Thank you for this podcast. It has truly been a gift to me and the family and friends I have shared it with.
I’ve been listening to this podcast for over three years now. I went back as far as I could go and I listen to every single message possible and I’ve never missed a single one... More recently though, it’s been really interesting to hear all of the deep, revelational, insights in support of Critical Race Theory (or Critical Theory in General). It feels good to know we as a church have woken up to the dangers of consumerism, and are now “woke enough” to get down on our knees and beg the Critical Race Theorist to come into our church and do what only they can do, save us. I can’t wait to hear the theology behind the Great Reset, it will be super comforting when me and my children are sent to Forced Labor Camps because intersectionality wise, we’re “oppressors.” Keep up the good work!
The morning and evening meditations were a lifeline to me during the early months of the pandemic!! Now I’ve branched out and listen to John Mark’s sermons over and over.
I live in rural Arkansas and love my small African-American church, but my pastor here is a PREACHER, and John Mark is a TEACHER, and I need both!
May God bless Bridgetown!
