Lent Week 5: How Should We Study the Bible? March 18, 2018

April 12, 2018 @ 6:31 pm

Text: Jeremiah 31:31-34

How shoud we understand the story we find in Scripture? How do we, as a community, develop a church-wide approach to teh good work of studying and wrestling with Scritpure. How do we understand the role of tradition 

5 Rules for Studying the Bible: 

  • We understand the Bible through Jesus 
  • Look for the spirit of the passage 
  • Find Scriptures that give you a lens to have the eyes of your heart opened  
  • Read and study the great teachers (Yes, that includes Bonhoeffer)
  • Be careful not to create your own theology and tradition 

Studying God's Word takes work, but it is a good work permeated with grace and truth.

Holy Week begins with Palm SUnday. Join us as we reflect on the events of this week thorugh the lens of Mark's Gospel, reflecting on Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. Instead of a coronation we find a sudden and tragic turn of events that finds Jesus on a cross. We reflected on the words, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom."

Holy Week: Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018

April 12, 2018 @ 12:31 pm

Our Easter Sunday sermon focused on Mary's encounter with and empty tomb and our risen Lord. Our text came from John 20:1-18. Our call to action was to ponder what will we do with the message of Jesus' resurrection. Will we keep it a secret and go and tell someone about it? Our encouaging word was to "Get out of here and go be love to someone to whom love is a stranger." Don't be suprised to hear Handel's Messiah in here as well. He is Risen! He is Risen, Indeed!
