The Greatest Blues Line

Matthew 27:24-50

We all know what its like to feel lonely. We know that it can sometimes feel akin to doubt. Doubt in ourselves, in others and in God. Jesus in his full humanity has felt that too. As he hung on the cross and cried out to his Father asking why he had "been forsaken" he understood both loneliness and doubt. Join us as we ponder the power of this moment on Good Friday.

A Lamenting King

Luke 19:28-44

In this passage we encounter a publicly lamenting Jesus. When we really consider the scene, it makes us uncomfortable. Isn't an important public (even royal!) figure supposed to "maintain his composure"? To "keep it together"? But what if Jesus and other ancient Hebrew people have some important to teach us about what it means to be human? Something that we as modern people might be missing out on?

The Hunger of Jesus

Matthew 4:1-11

As we begin both the Lenten season and a new sermon series called "The Humanity of Jesus," we encounter a familiar but strange passage about Jesus's meeting with the devil in the wilderness. As we examine the ways in which Jesus operates, we discover some important fundamental realities about our humanity, and an important way we miss out on living fully as humans. Listen in to find out how you can experience God in deeper ways this Lent.
