    Some of the greatest news of the Christian faith is also some of the most overlooked. Jesus’ ascension means that humanity has been joined to God. Humanity includes us.

    Begins a short series, “What are you afraid of?” exploring the fears so many of us face today and what God has done about them. What greater proof could we ask
    for that we are valued by God than Jesus Christ being raised in his earthly body to God in heaven? Do you believe that you too will be exalted by God one day?

    This Easter we consider Mark’s account of the first Easter. The women disciples were unprepared for what they found that morning: the stone rolled away and an angel sitting where Jesus body had been. Two millennia later, are we any better prepared for the implications of the empty tomb?

    The story of the first Easter from the Gospel of Mark begins in the most mysterious way, with the women disciples running away from the tomb in fear. Why do you think Mark told the story this way? Do you think it adds or takes away from its credibility?

    This Sunday we look at Mark’s account of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Mark tells us that the colt Jesus rode on Palm Sunday had never been ridden? How was it possible to ride an unbroken, untamed animal? What does this say about Jesus and his command of the situation.

    Fourth in the series, “What’s Wrong With Us?”  God had rescued the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt and provided for their every need in the desert. It seems that it’s easier to take people out of slavery than to take the slave out of people.

    Instead of being grateful for being rescued from slavery, the people complained. They even longed to go back to slavery. How do we learn to see that sin is something that enslaves us as well?

    Third in the series, “What’s Wrong With Us?” The great story of Naaman, a valiant warrior who had it all.

    Naaman may have had courage, success, and fame, but he also had a problem: leprosy. Yet Naaman was too proud to accept the cure that was offered. Are we too proud to accept what God offers us?

    Second in the series, “What’s Wrong With Us?” How is it that we keep telling ourselves that we’re better than we are, while, while looking down on others? The series explores the concept of sin based on four Old Testament stories.

    The lesson this week is the story of the disobedience of Saul, the first king of ancient Israel. Saul had been anointed by God to be king, and yet he trusted in his own judgment instead of God. Why do we believe ourselves instead of believing God?
