Love Is Lawful

Matthew 12.9-14
May 14th 2017

Never Anything Like This

Matthew 9.32-34

The Giver of Life

John 11.1-6
Dec 5th 2010

When you truly love someone, you want their absolute best.

Father (and in this case, Son) knows best! But in today's passage, there is the potential to mis-read Jesus as being a hard-hearted, careless, stoic rather than the Good Shepherd. So what is best? Our...read >>

Healed for Him, Not for Sin

John 5.1-14
Jan 31st 2010

Once again, Jesus navigates to a place we'd normally avoid: a colonnade with a multitude of invalids.

Jan 24th 2010

Think of a place where your friends are... folks that love, accept, appreciate, and enjoy you. Got it? Great.
