    Un-virtual Reality

    Un-virtual Reality

    Are human bodies more than mere clumps of cells? Do they have any value? Do they have any purpose? Do they have any meaning? Our culture increasingly answers these questions with a resounding no, treating human bodies as blank canvases, raw pieces  of clay to be modified or preserved, celebrated or terminated, just as we see fit.  
    Pastor Peter introduces his summer series, "Un-virtual Reality: Why We Can't Escape Our Bodies (and Why We Shouldn't Try)" by talking us through the need for a focus on the human body.

    The Curse Against Ham

    The Curse Against Ham

    No, we're not talking about the Levitical prohibition against eating pork. We're talking about Noah's son and the curse he received in Genesis 9. Pastor Peter breaks down what he thinks is going on in that text and how it can be applicable to us today.

    Which Reading? An Examination of a Textual Variant

    The King James translation includes the phrase "without cause" into Matthew 5:22 but most newer translations exclude the phrase. Which is correct? Pastor Peter answers this question and helps us think through how we should approach sticky textual questions like this one.

    The Mechanics of the Lord’s Supper

    The Mechanics of the Lord’s Supper

    Taking a seat at the Lord's table is an essential part of the Christian life. The bread and wine signify the body and blood of the risen Christ whom we follow. Does the way we distribute and partake of the elements have special significance as well?
