January 27, 2013

In this sermon, we begin a
two-part teaching on our
mission - Love God and
Make Disciples of Jesus
Christ for the Transformation
of the World. Before we can
respond in mission, we begin
with experiencing God's love,
identifying us as His son or
daughter "in whom I am
well-pleased
," (Matthew 3:17)
just as God the Father did with
Jesus at his baptism.  Only
after experiencing God's
presence in this life, rooting
his identity, could Jesus face
the temptations and begin his ministry. We are no different.

In this sermon, we look at
the second part of our
mission statement, "Love
God and Make Disciples
of Jesus Christ for the
Transformation of the
World."
What does that
look like? How can we
move from believer to
disciple and make God's
love real in our community
and beyond?

February 10, 2013

It has been a hard road leading
up to the decision to move on,
but I feel the Lord's anointing
on my next steps. I've heard the
call of the Lord asking whom
he'll send and I cannot say
anything except, "Here am I
Send me." The road before me
is anything but easy, but
obedience to the call is greater
than comfort. I've begun to seen
how my subscription to the
Christian faith comes with
responsibility - how bearing the
name of Christ means something.
I've decided to move back onto
the streets to live with the poor.
Some people don't receive the
love they deserve. I want to
change that.
