    I Believe: “I Believe In Jesus Christ, His Only Son, Our Lord” - Ken Coneby

    I Believe: “I Believe In Jesus Christ, His Only Son, Our Lord” - Ken Coneby

    Ken remembers the playground teeter-totter from being a childhood - the use it was designed for, and the way it was used for chaos instead.

    But it captures how many times unity feels so close to us - we can almost touch it, and yet we can’t.

    Ken mourns that teeter-totters are mostly gone now. Because there’s a joy in watching a child wait for someone to join them, to create community together, and then to see the dream realized.

    Philippians 2:5-11

    I Believe: “Maker of Heaven and Earth” - Ken Coneby

    I Believe: “Maker of Heaven and Earth” - Ken Coneby

    As we continue through our series on the Apostles’ Creed, Ken wants to give us some perspective today.

    Depending what we’re going through, our world is small or kinda big. And the world can get so big that it overpowers us, and we lose hope.

    Astronauts see the world from space, and it changes the way they interact with it for the rest of their lives. There’s something profound that happens if we are willing to let our world be expanded.

    Isaiah 40:10-14, 18-31

    I Believe: “I Believe in God the Father Almighty” - Ken Coneby

    I Believe: “I Believe in God the Father Almighty” - Ken Coneby

    When Ken was studying scripture in seminary, he had a professor who would always turn him back to the text. “Let it be fresh. Read it again.”

    So Ken asks us to take the story of the Prodigal Son and read it again, and let it be fresh. Because it’s an easy story to miss the boat on. It’s not the story of a son - it’s the story of two sons, and of a father. Of selfishness, and self-righteousness. And learning to recognize the true message of God as Father.

    Luke 15:11-32

    Arise: “Live The Life Of Heaven Here” - Ken Coneby

    Arise: “Live The Life Of Heaven Here” - Ken Coneby

    When Jesus meets with Nicodemus, he is stuck. He sees who Jesus is, but he can’t get past the practical and see what’s really happening. That’s our challenge, too.

    God hasn’t just moved, he is MOVING, he is here and now WITH us. And our invitation to that is through His Son.

    God is calling us to look out into the world and recognize that we’ve been given a foundation. We can look out into the world and seek the deeper questions of life.

    John 3:1-17

    Arise: “Make The Most Of Every Moment” - Ken Coneby

    Arise: “Make The Most Of Every Moment” - Ken Coneby

    This is Ascension Sunday and Senior Sunday, and Ken finds some similarity between the two. Graduating high school closes a chapter, but it’s not an end - it’s the beginning of something else.

    When Jesus returned from the dead, the disciples thought he would restore Israel, but instead, he’s suddenly gone, like David Blaine. The disciples are left stranded, sure that this is suddenly the end. But they’re wrong. There’s something they’re not expecting on the horizon.

    Acts 1:1-13
