Love One Another

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: community, cross, doing life together, mission

After washing the feet of his disciples, and predicting his betrayal and death, Jesus gives a new commandment: “Love one another.” While the commandment is not new, the pattern is new, “as I have loved you” and the result is new, “all people will know you are my disciples.” For followers of Jesus there is a direct link to the cross, community and mission.  Text: John 13:33-35

Encountered

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: cross, curse, Resurrection

Until an encounter with the resurrected Christ occurs, human reasoning cannot overcome the horror of the cross. As Christ breathed the Holy Spirit onto His disciples, consider its post-resurrection application today.  Text: John 20:11-22

The wheat and the tares…making sense of evil & suffering as a healing community

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: cross, evil, restoration, suffering

What is the cause of evil and suffering in our world? Can we fix it? Or, will it always be this way? To answer these questions, Jesus parable of the wheat and the tares presses us deep into the character and purposes of God and points forward to the cross where the love of God, seemingly so weak, ends up victorious and ultimately destroys the power of evil.  Text: Matthew 13: 24-30
