Light of New Consciousness

15 Mar, 2021

Today, we're talking the story of Nicodemus and his evening rendezvous with Jesus (John 3). First of all, let me say that scholars agree that the story of Nicodemus never really happened, as almost everything in the Gospel of John never really...

Hard-Ass Jesus

08 Mar, 2021

Once again, our kind, gentle, compassionate, forgiving, patient, teacher seems almost to have transformed in the same way the Hulk goes from quiet, emotionally reserved Dr. Bruce Banner, into a green giant with gargantuan muscles and a mind of...

Walking the Way of Jesus

01 Mar, 2021

Jesus was a hard-ass. We mostly really think of him as kind, loving, patient, compassionate, generous and caring. But, he was also a hard-ass sometimes.The passage in Mark 8:31-37 where Jesus says to Peter, "Get out of my sight, you Satan!" is...

Finding Wisdom in Stillness

25 Jan, 2021

Elijah was one of the greatest OT prophets, known for his wisdom and power, but Elijah got himself in a bit of trouble after executing 450 prophets of the Canaanite God Ba’al. Specifically, he got in trouble with Queen Jezebel, wife of King...

Stillness Within

18 Jan, 2021

This message begins a three part series on stillness , which is not to be confused with not moving. Spiritually speaking, stillness – inner stillness which feels like inner peace – is something much different. It is often cultivated by non-...

The Energy of New Beginnings

11 Jan, 2021

I like the new year! It’s one of those beginnings that invites excitement. It’s a little odd, because there really isn’t any huge difference between one day and the next. Yet, there is something energetically attractive about ringing out the...
