Simeon's song is a song of hope. A song of God coming through on what he has promised to do. Too often Christmas is a time which is not filled with hope. So often we struggle this season with feelings of hopelessness. You think things will never change or improve. Never forget the baby of Bethlehem is Lord of all and walked out of the grave. Christmas is the birthday of Hope!!
Christmas seems filled with these people we call Angels. Famous Christmas movie lines are about angels. And it was the Angels who had an interesting message to relay. Christmas is about peace. Today, we learn about that peace and how important it is.
What happens when God is silent? Most of us believe God is absent or distant, but what if that wasn't true. What if God was working his plan all along, even in the silence? Listen to part 2 of our series and the song of Zechariah.
Following Jesus makes your life better and makes you better at life. Our problem is we have our own ideas of what will make our life better. Will we trust ourselves or Jesus? Pastor Ed helps us understand how life is better following Jesus.
Why is Christianity so resistible? People who were nothing like Jesus liked Jesus and He liked them too. So what have we missed? Jesus promised those who followed Him and Rich and Satisfying life. Do we have that? Why Not? Pastor Ed begins a brand new series on experiencing the life that Jesus Promised
One of the most powerful displays of God's grace is in suffering. Pastor Ed looks at Paul's sharing of his suffering and what he learned. Also, one of our own Karen Schnathorst shares her story of leaning into God's grace during suffering.
Followers of Jesus don't experience an immediate change in their speech patterns. We need some coaching. Paul wrote the believers in Ephesus about the power of their words. Our words are materials to build each other up. So are you building or tearing down?
