Profit and Loss

Scripture: Matthew 10:24-39

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

These words are hardly a charming invitation to the Christian life. Jesus talks about profit and loss, danger and sacrifice, fear and obedience, conflicting loyalties, and living a God-with-us life, not merely making a living. Jesus invites us to share his life. There will be losses and pain and conflict, but true life with be gained.

Putting Things in Order

We all search for meaning in life, relationship with others and with God. The Trinity is a model for our lives. If God is at the center of our lives, we cannot look at others with disdain. The Trinity is the circle that draws us all together and gives life meaning and purpose.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 13:11-13

Open the Gates

The Holy Spirit comes upon the church and the gates are opened to include people from all over the world. The Spirit gives them the ability to praise God. The Spirit of God gives them a new imagination. They now think of things in a new way. The Holy Spirit enables us to be changed people in an unchanged world.
