Escape: "The Mission"

Edmund Brooks

Many of us have heard the tales of Jonah and how her ran away from God's plan, but we often don't put ourselves into his shoes. When God calls upon us, what is our response? Yes, it is scary and hard, but it is asked by God! We, as Christ followers, an't say no to his plan. We must accept the Mission.

Community: "Can We Handle This?"

Randy Christian

When a community is strong, its members are not self-centered.  Rather, they voluntarily put others—and the community as a whole—as a priority.  Jesus made it clear that service both in this community and to those in the world was essential to Christian community.

PRACTICING JESUS: Two Loves

March 4, 2012Randy Christian

Everyone loves. Everyone wants to love. Everyone wants to be loved. Love occupies much of our thoughts, our arts, our lives. And yet love is so easily misunderstood. Ask 20 different people to describe love and you’ll get 20 different answers, because we tend to see love as a projection of ourselves. But it isn’t. Love isn’t from us—it is from God, and the only way to truly love is to experience His love.
