This Sunday: What You Have to Give

November 5th, 2015 | John Chandler

Some people are great at giving gifts. They seem to notice things about you and know just the right thing to make you feel like a million bucks. Some people could write you a blank check and you still wouldn’t trust them. Not all giving is the same. Jesus discussed this in Mark, one of the biographies written about him. … Read More

This Sunday: Vocation

September 30th, 2015 | John Chandler

So far this year, we’ve spent seasons in two of our primary pratices: Sabbath and Hospitality. Sabbath and Hospitality are tangible practices, and pretty easy to put on a calendar. And now, as the year winds down, we move toward our third practice: Vocation. Vocation is a bigger concept, but one that can and should shape each day of our … Read More

This Sunday: It's Getting Real

September 17th, 2015 | John Chandler

We’re winding down the Sermon on the Mount and Jesus’ tone seems to take a bit of a turn in these final few paragraphs. After many weeks of teaching seeing how Jesus invites us into a life that is flourishing, Jesus turns toward laying down a challenge for his listeners. Will they hear his words and nod, or will they … Read More

This Sunday: Worry is Overrated

August 27th, 2015 | John Chandler

There is a broad sentiment in our day about the benefit of returning to a simpler time, with fewer cares and worries. You know, the good old says.

This Sunday, we’ll visit one of the most recognizable teachings of Jesus: the Lord’s Prayer. While many of us may be familiar with it already, we won’t be looking for fresh new insights. We’ll simply allow ourselves to be reminded of the richness of what Jesus has to say. We gather for Liturgy every Sunday at 10:30am. You are welcome … Read More

This Sunday: Love

July 22nd, 2015 | John Chandler

This Sunday, we’ll wind down Jesus’ list of examples of how the Kingdom of God might in the day to day. It is one of Jesus’ teachings that stands above all both for its noteriety and its potential complications — love for enemies. The embrace, or neglect, of this teaching is what Christians throughout history have most been known for. … Read More
