Sent Like Jesus

All followers of Jesus are sent into the world just as the Father sent Jesus into the world. The story that they are living out is characterized by joy because the resurrection of Jesus has assured them of eternal life available for all who will surrender to Jesus. They also rejoice because the Holy Spirit empowers them to accomplish the mission no matter the difficulties or complications they will encounter.

Eternal Things: Practice

The deep desire in the heart of God is to see men and women reconciled to Him. We have been invited into His plan as the vehicles through which the message of Jesus is spoken, both through our words and our lives.

Songs of Advent: Mary's Song - Mercy

Mary "sings" the praise of our God, who is both merciful and mighty. In her song, we find a framework to understand the work of God, observe the power of God, and receive the grace of God. It is only in that receiving that we can truly offer grace to others.

Songs of Advent: Elizabeth's Song - Joy

Elizabeth's song, like each of the poems recorded by Luke prior to the birth of Jesus, is full of joy and hope. The fulfilled promise of the Messiah gives us joy in the present and hope for the future.

Celebration

The church often has the unfortunate reputation for being a dour place where people take themselves far too seriously. Instead, we are called to be a people who take God very seriously—and because we do, we can rejoice and celebrate! Joy should be the hallmark of the believer.

Bring Out The Book!

The restoration of community was not limited to the external wall, but required an internal transformation of the people as well. The Word of God has the power to transform a people into a community if we are willing to both hear and respond.
