The Exponential Abundance of Christmas…FAITH

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Faith, Jesus mission, Jesus the Door, Jesus the Good shepherd

Jesus was born to die. Jesus mission is seen most clearly against the darkness of unbelief and skepticism. His life, his teaching, his death and resurrection are live-restoring, and life-giving for everyone who believes and places faith and trust in Him.  Text: John 10:10; 22-42

Of Saints and Sinners: The Names that Surprise Us

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: belonging, hope & healing, Jesus mission, women

The often overlooked genealogy of Jesus at the beginning of Matthew’s gospel includes five women. Why does Matthew break with tradition to include these women? Could it be that these women, like the men, offer vital clues about Jesus mission and the kinds of people Jesus came to restore to life? I think it is this, and more.  Text: Matthew 1:1-17 (esp. v. 3, 5, 6b and 16)
