Part 1: Teach Us to Pray

May 7, 2017

From the series "Prayer" as part of Practicing The Way. Prayer was the center point of Jesus’ relationship with the Father. It was woven into the fabric of his daily life, and it seems like it wasn’t a chore for him - he really enjoyed his Father’s company. Most of us can’t relate to that. Prayer feels boring or awkward or hard. Could it be that we have yet to experience prayer like Jesus? In Luke 11, Jesus’ disciples ask, Teach us to pray! Jesus’ answer is a framework for prayer that has the potential to open up a whole new dimension to our life with the Father.

Hope Like Nothing the World had Ever Seen

April 16, 2017

From Easter Sunday, 2017. For more and more people in our city, the story of secularism just isn’t working. There’s a hopelessness to the cold, hard story of the modern world. Yet still, our society is haunted by the memory of another story, one full of meaning and purpose. The resurrection of Jesus changed the narrative arc of human history, and infused hope into the world. It’s time we recover this ancient story and base our lives around its reality.

Who is Actually Blessed?

April 9, 2017

From the series "Gospel of Matthew." In this teaching, we kick off “The Sermon on the Mount” – the most important teachings of Jesus all in one place. It’s Jesus' manifesto for a whole new way to be human in the kingdom of God. In the opening lines of the Sermon, Jesus radically redefines who is blessed around the least likely candidates. It’s one of the most important, and most misunderstood, of all Jesus’ teachings.

April 3, 2017

And how do we live into it’s reality? And what will the kingdom do to reshape our life from the ground up?

Carry the Name

April 3, 2017

From the series "God Has A Name." Many of us ache for relationship with God, yet feel distant and disconnected from him. As if he’s more of an idea we believe in our head than a person we relate to. In this series, we discover that Exodus 34v6-7, is God's self-disclosure of Himself. It is the most quoted verse in the Bible, by the Bible, and the epicenter for a theology of God. This series was originally recorded in 2013 and is now being re-release with the introduction of the new book “God Has A Name” from John Mark Comer.
