    Acts 15:1-18                                           The Jerusalem conference is an important moment in the life of the Church. It is a defining moment. Do people have to join the church through Judaism, or is there another way? Is salvation through the circumcision of Moses alone or is there another way?            Fundamentally, the church and its leaders have to make a decision here.…

    April 25, 2021 – Invitation or Invitation Only? – The Fourth Sunday of Easter

    April 25, 2021 – Invitation or Invitation Only? – The Fourth Sunday of Easter

    Acts 8:26-39            So often our assumption is that missionaries and evangelism and conversion work is just sent to people who have never heard the Gospel.

    Acts 6:1—7:2a, 44-60                       And it should look and sound familiar. When there’s lots of change, there’s lots of issues.

    April 4, 2021 – Remember his Words – Easter Sunday

    Luke 24:1-12     Empty tomb, women perplexed, bring the message.            The story of Easter is one that we know fairly well. We know early on the first day of the week. We know the women. We know the cowered and hiding disciples. We know the disbelief.            The story all changes when the women remember. They remember who Jesus is, and…

    March 28, 2021 – Talking Rocks – Palm/Passion Sunday

    Luke 19:29-44            Rocks are a theme in Scripture. Peter is the rock. Children of Abraham could be raised up from those stones. The church is made of living stone. And here, Jesus talks about stones that can cry out. We so often look at this passage at what the people cry out, moving from Hosanna to ‘crucify him!’ but what does…
