    We love because God loves us.

    Thirteen years ago when I first started preaching, the scariest part of it was knowing that sometimes, people really do listen. It has been an incredible privilege, a humbling privilege, to be listened to by you. Thank you. What have you heard? I don’t know what you have heard, but I more

    We can relate to the Spirit through the feminine imagery present in scripture.

    God the Father. God the Son. And God the Holy Spirit. Three of my favorite things to talk about, and today we are going to talk about God the Holy Spirit.

    Contributed on Jul 12, 2013

  • Our Father Who Art In Heaven

    Contributed on Jun 25, 2013

    This sermon is a compilation of scripture in the form of a 'letter' from God to his children describing His love for us.

    Last Sunday, I told a story and showed a video to conclude my sermon. For those of you who may not have been here, it was a story about a father and his handicapped son. When most of the medical system had written this child off as “a vegetable”, this dad refused to give up. He found more

    Love is a powerful motivator and our lives should be lived from a foundation of love.

    What Love Does To Us June 16, 2013 Intro: We’ve already had a full meal – on Scripture, on the depth of poetry in music expressed as prayers of our hearts, on the celebration of new life and a family committed to have Jesus as the center, and on the testimony of faith of a man in more

    I once went to a dentist, and I don’t remember what procedure he was actually doing on my teeth but for some reason he needed to wiggle my jaw.
