Sent: God’s Love Abides

Rev. Isaac Chung shares with us in our series about mission. What role does providing for those in physical need play in what God has Sent us to do? As we care for the physical needs of others we show we care for people holistically and earn the right to be heard when we share God’s love with our words.

Sent: Pure Religion

I continue to look at our mission as the Church. Jesus was Sent into this world and has Sent us to join in that mission. In this sermon we look at Jesus’ care for those most vulnerable and our responsibility to care for those at risk of being oppressed by the world.

Sent: The Great Confusion

Jesus was Sent to this world on a mission. When he ascended into heaven, he gave that mission over to his Church to continue it in his name. In this sermon, we look at how Jesus saw his own mission through the prophet Isaiah and in turn what our mission is to be.

Encountering God in Meditation

I continue my look at practices to help us encounter God daily. “Meditation” is talked about the through the Psalms and alluded to in other Scriptures. Church tradition has placed meditation high on the list of spiritual disciplines. This week I will explore the topic of meditation and look at two simple forms you can use daily.

Encountering God in Prayer

I start a new series this week on what it means to “Encounter” God daily. We tend to look at our time with God as “devotions” but that puts an emphasis on our side of the relationship and ignores the presence God wants to share with us. Starting our exploration about daily encounter with God demands that we look at the practice of “Prayer.”

The People of God: Family

In this last week of my series on what it means to be “The People of God” I take a look at the analogy used more informally, “Family”. The Scriptures refer to Christians as brothers and sisters, and Sons of God. What do these sayings mean for who we are in the world?

The People of God: Temple

What is the Church? For the next four weeks, I will be examining the major analogies Scripture uses to talk about the People of God to better understand our role as the Church. The first in this series is focused on the analogy of being the “Temple” of God.
