Thomas for The Trenches

More often than not when Thomas comes on the scene around this time of year I wag an accusing finger at the guy. It might be the same finger I want to put into the side of Jesus! Thomas is a guy for the doubt in all of us…especially in those times when it is hard to believe. Taken with the Acts passage we might reflect this morning on how the community of Christ-followers might be a ‘sign’ that encourages belief.

Fire

Synopsis: This series will pick up on themes used in the devotional guide I put together for my sabbatical and inspiration comes from Christine Valters Paintner’s book, Water, Wind Earth and Fire, The Christian Practice of Praying the Elements. Focusing on the Psalms, that especially refers to elements to describe attributes of God, you can anticipate some new and creative ways to think about, pray with and worship God in this short series.

Workcampers Share: What Do You Stand For?

This year’s Workcamp theme will explore different people who encountered Jesus and how they responded to him. Hopefully after we hear from our workcampers, what WE stand for can become clearer.

On Sitting in Darkness

There are plenty of reasons to fell like our sitting in darkness is justified…tensions in the family, problems at work, a government shut-down…etc etc etc…the reality is there is a Child who is the Light of the World. What we focus on grows…tonight we focus on the light!

When Contradictory Claims Collide

Experience teaches that dead is dead and that’s the end. The Easter message says that Jesus lives…AFTER DEATH! When such contradictory claims collide, it only makes sense to continue affirming what we already know. The Easter message challenges us to move for our old beliefs to something new! Why is this so hard for so many when so many find it easy in this day and time to believe many outrageous things! Can we get to: WHAT IF IT’S NOT AN IDLE TALE?
