  • Reality Over Legalities

    23/05/2021

    Jesus' words about divorce appears to provide a technical reason for justifying the breaking of the marriage covenant. Is this what this passage really means, or is there something more significant that Jesus was saying? This sermon provides an unexpected answer to this question.

  • The Myth of Romantic Love

    16/05/2021

    In this sermon, Greg challenges the modern myth of romantic love, providing three reasons why it derails us from entering into a biblical view of marriage. Also, Emily Morrison provides a reframe for understanding how singleness plays a part in God's family.

  • The Way of the Beloved Community

    09/05/2021

    In this section of Scripture we're in, Jesus explains the difference between what people of his day assumed the Old Testament law meant and what it really means. He's making clear the underlying spirit of the law, as opposed to the literal interpretation that focuses on the letter of the law. This points to a "third way" pattern of living out the Kingdom of God that manifests the true meaning of God's law.

    First, Cedrick Baker provides a reflection on his thoughts after seeing the verdict of Derek Chauvin, along with more killings of black individuals at the hands of law enforcement. This was followed by a teaching from Greg on Jesus' challenge to common views of adultery.

  • Living in High Definition

    11/04/2021

  • The Newness of Resurrected Life

    04/04/2021

  • A Farewell to Anger

    07/03/2021

    21/02/2021

    The Bible is not just a text to study. It is a way to hear and know God through the central story of Jesus who delivers us from exile.

  • Rock of Ages or Off His Rocker?

    14/02/2021

    Jesus claimed that the entire Bible was about him, that he is the center of the Scriptures. This claim requires us to conclude that he was crazy or that he was correct. And if the latter, then we must decide what to do with such a claim.

  • The Divinely Inspired Story of God

    07/02/2021

    In the first part of the sermon, Greg explains the decision of leadership regarding its plans for re-opening.
