We Can Do A Better Job Of Loving One Another

This week we are going to dig into how to treat each other better than we seem to be doing right now. It seems like we have lost some clarity about why we are here on this planet and how we are to live with one another. Jesus said said, “By this will all people know that you are my disciples.” The “this” He was talking about was love. Love for one another.

When Our Problems Feel Too Big To Overcome

Do you ever feel like your problems or the problems of the world seem too big to overcome? Does it feel like there is nothing you can do and you feel stuck and hopeless? There is a story from the Word that illustrates this feeling and how we can move find peace and hope again.

In the story the Philistines, an enemy of Israel, have confronted them. Goliath, the champion of the Philistine army, held the army of Israel at bay with his threats, taunts, and his size. However, the shepherd boy David fearlessly went out and fought and killed the giant Goliath with a sling, five smooth stones, and trust in the Lord, declaring, “The battle is the Lord’s.”

Why Are We So Good At Making Bad Choices?

Why is it that no matter how well we know what is right and plan to do the right thing we can keep making bad choices? This pattern can be frustrating and disheartening. The truth is that this is part of the process of changing for the better, AND we can do something that will help us to break this pattern and begin to make better and more consistent choices for good.

The Ups And Downs Of Life

Does this picture capture well the feeling of living through a pandemic?

The story of Noah and the ark feels a little too close to home in some ways. Locked inside an ark with no seeming end in sight for a long, long time. Eventually the waters start to recede and birds are sent out of the ark to see if it is safe to come out. Finally the ark comes to rest on Mt. Ararat and they are able to leave the safety of the ark and venture out to begin life anew. What are the lessons learned from their time in the ark? What do they do first?

This week we explore the story of Noah and glean a few lessons that may help us to understand the point of this sometimes crazy life.

What To Look For In A Good Leader

Free, Yet Reasonable

We all love our freedom. Do we really understand what it means to have freedom? True freedom doesn’t mean doing whatever we want. True freedom relies upon finding out what is right and good and making a choice based on it.

This week we will look at how to use both of our God given gifts of freedom and reason to make good choices and how to avoid getting stuck in a type of “freedom” that leads to unhappiness.

When We Reach Our Limit

There are times in life when things pile up and we feel like we have reached the limit of our ability to cope. It is as if we are being battered around by waves emotionally. We might believe that we just have to be stronger or tougher to overcome the forces pressing against us. Perhaps instead we need to recognize the limits of our power and turn to the ONE who can share strength, hope, direction and solutions with us.

No Worship Service This Sunday, August 2nd.

Wishing you a peaceful Sunday. May you find meaningful connection with the Lord this Sabbath day.

From True Christianity 301, Emanuel Swedenborg: “Sabbath in the language of the original means rest… When the Lord came into the world that day became a day for instruction in Divine matters, and also a day of rest from work, for meditation about matters conducive to salvation and everlasting life, and a day for love towards the neighbor.”

What Is Anger And What Do I Do With It?

We all experience anger. It is a fairly common emotion. It is an emotion that perhaps is becoming more and more familiar as circumstances in our world challenge us in new ways almost daily.

Is anger always a negative emotion? Does it ever do any good? Is there any way to control it and its impact?

This Sunday we will consider what is taught about the source of anger when it wells up in us and what we can do about it. And we will also talk about something that looks a whole lot like anger but is very different in its origin and which can be a good thing.

To Judge Or Not To Judge?

That is the question.

We live in a moment in time where the restraints appear to have been removed and people feel much more free to express their judgments of others openly. But are we supposed to make judgments of others? If no, then why not? And if yes, in what way? These are the kinds of questions we will dig into this week.
