Pledging Allegiance…to which kingdom? A two-kingdom perspective

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: allegiance, contrast, Witness

Allegiances in Jesus’ day were as real as we face today–same competing loyalties, just a different empire. While in the midst of mixed allegiances, Jesus asks a profound question. Consider how authentic allegiance must square with daily living.  Text:  Matthew 16:13-20

The church visible or invisible? A contrast and radical witness

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: contrast, faithful, Witness

What makes a visible witness-visible? The answer may surprise us. Early Anabaptist’s were called “radicals” as result of a faithful and visible witness. In this spiritual identity series #3, consider a key teaching of Jesus which differentiates visibility from invisibility.  Text: Mathew 25:31-46

Seeing Jesus and Sharing Jesus

Speaker: Guest
Topics: love, Neighbor, Witness

We come to Jesus in need of healing, like the woman, and in need of having our vision of our neighbors transformed, like the synagogue leader. When we first see Jesus in our neighbors, we are then able to share Jesus. The transformation in our hearts is the mustard seed that becomes something much bigger than we could imagine.      Text: Luke 13:10-20

The Wall…and the Seat We Sit In

Speaker: Brian Martin
