Jesus Our Light

Jesus Our Light

Somebody once said that the one thing all religions have in common is they all use candles.  We don't know if that's true or not, but the idea suggests how important light is to us as a symbol. John's gospel begins with a profound theological statement about the nature and incarnation of the divine Word; as we prepare for Christmas this Advent season, we'll study this state...John 1:1-12

The Glory of the Lord

December 5th, 2014

What if you had a chance to see God? Would you grab it? But God is a glorious Spirit, who “dwells in unapproachable light,” as the Bible says. No human being can actually see God. Join the Groundwork conversation on Exodus 32-34 this week as we discuss what Moses really means and what happens when he asks to see God’s glory.

We need to hear, from an authoritative source, both who God is and what he demands of us. Join our Groundwork conversation as we discuss Matthew 22:34-40 and the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20.

God’s Glory in the Tough Places

November 14th, 2014

Far too often, we let our circumstances determine how we behave: we’re happy when times are good but, in an instant, can become profoundly unhappy the moment something goes wrong.   Sometimes our unhappiness prevents us from seeing the many blessings we actually have received.   As we continue in the Book of Exodus, we come to Exodus 16 & 17 and the first of many t...Exodus 16-17

One of the things I think we all realize is that Christians – both here in North America and throughout the world – are facing some very big challenges. Whether it is the persecuted church in the Middle East and other places or the growth of aggressively secularist societies and governments in the west, Christians today are being confronted with a great deal of opposition. How shoul...2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Timothy 4:1-5, & Proverbs 27:17
