Christmas Eve: An Extraordinary Christmas

December 20th, 2021 | Community Updates

The story of the first Christmas has become so normalized and ordinary that we don’t even see the extraordinary elements, objects and people within the narrative anymore.

December 19th, 2021 | Barry Swindon

“You go, and do likewise,” are the words Jesus conveys to the lawyer at the end of a certain story about a Samaritan. It’s a perfect scripture to take a look at during Advent as we remember the first Christmas long ago…and realize with thankfulness that God didn’t “walk by on the other side” of the universe and instead sent … Read More

Podcast – Grow In Christ: Scheming & Dreaming

December 12th, 2021 | Barry Swindon

If you had a financial manager in charge of all your assets and you found they were cheating you and using your resources for sketchy dealings…would you tell them, “Good job”? Probably not. Well, that’s Jesus’ hook for a story we dive into this week as he illustrates the idea that if you’re following him…be smart, be ready, be scheming…have … Read More

Liturgy of Lament

December 1st, 2021 | Community Updates

Liturgy of Lament We invite you into the practice lament. The practice of lament may be new to many of us.
