Pray for World AIDS day December 1, 2014 - 9:51am

World AIDS day, every year on December 1, is a day to all aspects of the AIDS pandemic. Over 35 million people have died from AIDS, and over 35 million people live with HIV today. Two million die each year from AIDs, and 270,000 are children (from Wikipedia)

Here is a prayer space (through adding comments below) to honor those who have passed on, to pray for those with the disease, to seek guidance for next steps, or to commit to a way of action.

Anthropocentrism vs. biocentrism and Christianity January 9, 2015 - 12:12am

Christianity holds that God created men and women as rulers over the natural world and gave us the responsibility to be earth's stewards. However, we have largely taken advantage of this responsibility and have wreaked havoc upon the planet. Other religions like Hinduism hold that we are all a part of creation, each creature with equal value.

A Royal Priesthood January 19, 2015 - 9:33am
"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people who are God's own possession.  You have become this people so that you may speak of the wonderful acts of the one who called you out of darkness into his amazing light.  Once you weren't a people, but now you are God's people.  Once you hadn't received mercy, but now you have received mercy." 1 Peter 2:9-10 CEB

Advent Conspiracy January 19, 2015 - 9:40am

Advent 2014 begins on

Sunday, November 30

Worship Fully

It starts with Jesus. It ends with Jesus. This is the holistic approach God had in mind for Christmas. It’s a season where we are called to put down our burdens and lift a song up to our God. It’s a season where love wins, peace reigns, and a king is celebrated with each breath. It’s the party of the year.

High Hopes for the Holiday January 19, 2015 - 9:45am

We all have hopes for the Christmas holiday. Full of joy. Memories. Happiness. Above all, we want it to be about Jesus. What we don’t want is stress. Or debt. Or feeling like we “missed the moment.” Advent Conspiracy is a movement designed to help us all slow down and experience a Christmas worth remembering. But doing this means doing things a little differently. A little creatively. It means spending less on material items and giving more to those in need. For our worshiping community, Advent Conspiracy 2014 means worship, connecting and ministry opportunities in the neighborhood.

A Call For Prayer, A Call For Action January 20, 2015 - 5:15pm


In the wake of the death of Mike Brown and the events in Ferguson alongside the choke hold death of Eric Garner and the events in New York City, I am calling our faith community to be fervently in prayer.  Whatever our personal thoughts on the particulars of these events, a son and a father are dead. Families are grieving and old wounds have been torn open in the Black community.

The Plush Silence of Heaven (Psalm 82) January 27, 2015 - 9:54am

This is the message I gave this past Sunday based on Psalm 82.

God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah Give justice to the weak and the orphan; maintain th

How an “Evangelism” Dialogue Might Go: Creating Safe Space Everywhere You Are February 16, 2015 - 11:14am

Imagine… Facebook-level friends running into each other at a grocery store…

One of them has a newspaper under their arm. The other one notices.


“Hey! How are you?

Good! Haven’t seen you in forever!

I know! Anything good in the paper? Probably not! Man, there are two things I don’t talk to people about: politics & religion.

Really? Because they’re so contentious?
