Luke 14:12-24

We all struggle with FOMO -- the fear of missing out on something special and significant. That's not just a 21st century thing, but an ancient fear, too. Listen in as we talk about FOMOG -- the fear of missing out on God, and how we can learn to jump into God moments when we come across them and not miss out.

Stepping into Desire

Matthew 13:44-46

When we read about Jesus and what he had to say something awakens in us, stirs us, moves us. That thing is desire. Desire is a dangerous thing because it compels us to "go for it" even if it costs us more than we were willing to give up. Listen in as we continue our series on parables and look at two that show us what it means to step into desire.

A Rooted Kingdom

Mark 4:30-32

This week we look at a kingdom parable, a metaphor Jesus uses to fill our imagination with truth about the kingdom of God so that we can live as kingdom-shaped people in the world. We see that the kingdom of God is like a mustard seed, which sounds like a strange thing to say, and it is! As we'll see, it was surprising to Jesus's original listeners, and it's just as surprising (and challenging) today. Listen in to hear what it means to live in the way of Jesus, and how following in the way of Jesus is so opposed to the ways of our world.
