    Today our focus is on two broken-hearted disciples who saw the Savior, and as a result, were never the same again.

    This light bulb represents bright hope. It’s full of promising potential. But, like your heart, it’s also very fragile [drop bulb so it shatters]. We’ve all experienced the crash of unmet expectations. Some of us have been gouged by grief that won’t seem to go away. Many of us have been hit ...read more

    One of the results of the resurrection is that we no longer have to live in fear.

    The Discovery Channel recently did a story on the Top Ten Phobias that people have (www.exn.ca). Phobia comes from the Greek word for fear, but refers to a panic that is completely out of proportion to the perceived threat behind it. Here are some of the top fear factors. #10: Necrophobia. The ...read more

    Jesus walked through a wall, and the disciples went from fear to freaked out to faith.

    Drowning in Doubt It was a hot, humid Mississippi night nearly ten years ago, but I remember it like it was yesterday. I was sitting on the third step of the swimming pool at my apartment complex. I was twenty-six years and had just completed a very difficult seminary program. For nearly ...read more

    I want us to look briefly at two worshipping women who shared the same name, but had different job descriptions: Mary, the mother of Jesus; and Mary Magdalene, who as far as we know, was not a mother.

    While it’s nearly impossible to spell out everything a mother does, this Motherhood Job Description hits the highlights. TITLE: Mother, Mom, Mama, Mommy. SUMMARY: Long term, team players needed, for challenging permanent work in an often chaotic environment. Candidates must possess excellent ...read more

    Today I want to tell you about a fishing trip that took place after the Resurrection.

    Hi, my name is Simon Peter. You’ve probably heard of some of my most embarrassing moments. It would take me all day to tell you about how my mouth has messed me up, and about how I let Jesus down, as well as the other disciples. Today I want to tell you about a fishing trip that took place after ...read more

    There’s a lot we can learn about forgiveness by following the example Jesus set for us when He restored Peter.

    Shalom, it’s Peter again. I talked with many of you last Sunday when I told you about an amazing fishing trip. I had been doubly disappointed -- first in myself for failing Jesus, and second when we didn’t catch any fish. But then Jesus appeared, and after having breakfast on the beach, he asked me ...read more

    This morning our focus is on the Great Commission, given by the Master Fisher of Men.

    Now it came to pass that a group existed who called themselves fishers. And lo, there were many fish in the waters all around. In fact the whole area was surrounded by streams and lakes filled with fish. And the fish were hungry. Week after week, month after month, and year after year these who ...read more

    want us to look at three primary passages this morning. These three texts, taken together, form a composite picture of the Ascension.

    I heard recently about a church that was putting on an Easter Cantata. When they came to the climactic scene of the Ascension of Christ, the actor playing Jesus was to be slowly hoisted out of view through an opening in the ceiling. The cue for the guys pulling the rope was when he said, “And ...read more

    This morning our focus in on one last appearance, though this one took place after the Ascension, as Jesus radically redirects a rebel named Paul (also known as Saul – his Hebrew name).

    Today we’re wrapping up our series called, “Beyond the Tomb,” during which we’ve studied the various appearances Jesus made between His Resurrection and His ascension into Heaven. This morning our focus in on one last appearance, though this one took place after the Ascension, as Jesus radically ...read more
