Pastor Kate introduces a new series on relationship in which we’re invited to think about our relationship to God, self, and others. What does love look like in these relationships? Is love selfless in relationship?
It’s Easter Sunday, and in this message Pastor Colby invites you to experience the ways in which resurrection can speak a transformative word in to whatever fears you may currently be facing.
Wrapping up our Lenten series and our exploration of the Enneagram, we unpack the Sevens (the Enthusiast) and offer some general wrap up thoughts.
Our Lent series continues as we use the Enneagram to help us understand why we do what we do. This week Pastors Kate and Colby explore the Fives (The Investigator) and Sixes (The Loyalist).
The Enneagram is a tool to help us understand why we do what we do. This week, Pastors Kate and Colby get raw and honest as they explore the numbers that each of them identify with, Fours (The Individualist) and Threes (The Achiever) respectively.
Our exploration of the Enneagram continues as Pastors Colby and Kate teach on the Ones (The Reformers) and the Twos (The Helper).
This week Pastors Colby and Kate explore the ways in which Eights (The Challenger) and Nines (The Peacemaker) offer the world unique flavors of the Divine Presence. Learn how each number holds you back from flourishing, and how to move forward in to greater wholeness and connection.
Lent has begun, and so comes our annual six week journey of introspection. This year we'll leverage the insight and the poignancy of the Enneagram to guide us as we travel in the heart of our shadows and back out again toward new life. In this introductory message, Pastors Colby and Kate co-preach and share from their own story how the Enneagram has given them hope for a new life, both together and as individuals.
In the conclusion of our NonViolence series, Colby takes a brief look back at the ground we’ve covered before looking ahead at how the principles of nonviolence apply to our church and to our own lives.
Have you ever wondered “What would Jesus do?” when it comes to that toxic relationship in your life? That person who constantly ridicules and rejects you? That place where you always leave feeling like less-than-human? In this message, Colby invites us to consider taking Jesus up on his directive to “shake the dust off our feet” and move on.
For those who are sold out on the idea of Jesus as a peace-loving, bridge-building, reconciling sort of guy, there remains some verses that call this image into serious question. One such verse comes from Matthew 10. Join Colby as he explores what Jesus might have meant by, “I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.”
Turn the other cheek. Go the extra mile. What was Jesus actually talking about when he gave these instructions to his first century Palestine listeners? Have these teachings become so cliche that we've lost most of their meaning? Pastor Kate shares more of the story behind these teachings and wonders if perhaps they are as applicable today as ever.
For part four of our series on NonViolence, we welcome reflections from our friend Benjamin Cornelius and a message from Mathew Mitchell encouraging us to reconsider scriptural references to the Devil and perhaps, as Richard Beck would say, revive Old Scratch for the sake of our faith and our world. #thegoodfight #fightforlovewithlove
MLK once said, “the arc of the moral universe is long and it bends toward justice.” In Part 3 of our NonViolence series, Colby explores the tension between the themes of Nonviolence and the rampant violence evident in the Bible. He shows how “the arc of the moral Bible is long and it bends toward nonviolent, restorative justice.”
In Part Two of our series on nonviolence, we wrestle with the age old belief that "violence saves," or what can be called, "The Myth of Redemptive Violence." Does violence actually work as an approach to handling conflict?
