Unnatural Desire

“How can someone be born again when they are old?” An important man, a leader of the Jews, came to Jesus and was confounded by what Jesus said to him.  This new birth thing seems so unreal – so… unnatural. This week we will look at John 3:1-17 Romans 4:1-17 and  Psalm 121 to see […]

The Weaving Of Our LIves

Have you ever thought about how God is like a weaver, who weaves the cloth of our lives? Or like a potter, who creates the shape of our lives? Sunday we will explore these metaphors, using the example of the life of David. God has plans for David, and designs the shape of his existence in […]

A Little Knowledge…

Let’s say you really, really want to go somewhere – maybe you are going there to get a fantastic award when you arrive. You know the destination exists, and you know it is possible to get there, but have no real idea of how to do it. What would you do? Just set out and […]

Blessed Ignorance!

Our culture has taken an odd turn in the last 30 years or so – ignorance is making a comeback! To be educated or to highly respect the value of education used to be one of the hallmarks of the Reformed tradition and of American life. Now to dedicate yourself to learning and study is […]
