As Jesus continues to teach his way to Jerusalem, he shares with his disciples a priority-shifting paradigm concerning a struggle that, not only did they face, but we face as well. Join us this week to see Jesus teach about the problem with worry and where we should focus when we worry and anxiety attack.

Have you been a follower of Christ all your life? If so, you probably are grateful for the blessings that come with that commitment. Do you expect special treatment because of your faith? Do you know people who have come to Christ later in life, perhaps from a lifestyle not consistent with your values? Do you wonder if you have special privileges or wonder what's in it for you over against the late comers?

What makes you feel generous? What creates a desire in you to share what you have? Is it graceful behavior by others towards yourself? Or perhaps the influence of those around you? Some of us are more generous when we are part of a group that practices generosity.

We live in a world of anxiousness, uncertainty, complexity and in some sense despair/hopelessness. And, whether we want to admit it or not we sometimes allow these emotions to creep into our lives at times because of the situations/circumstances in which we find ourselves. If we allow these emotions to affect our decision making and conduct we will become spiritually paralyzed and more than likely "give up."

We have spent the last couple of weeks discussing what scripture is and how we use it. We want to be very intentional not just on whether or not we are reading the Bible but HOW we are reading the Bible. How are we letting the word of God affect us? Is it simply a giant rule of life manual or is it something more?

How do you feel about your prayer life? Does it energize and encourage you? Do you look forward to the times that you pray? Or do you have a hard time getting around to it? This morning, we will take some first steps towards connecting with God through a richer and deeper daily practice of prayer.

Churches are messy. All churches. Always. People want different things. We have different ideas, experiences, and perspectives. We all have a pretty good sense that we are right, and others are wrong. But messy churches are not new. Most of the churches in the New Testament were pretty messed up. But there is a way forward, a healthier way to do church. Seeking it will be painful but finding it could open up for us a new and surprising future.

It's the day after Christmas and sometimes there's a temptation to be sorrowful, we celebrated the arrival of the Savior yesterday and today we notice his absence. The Savior himself had a much different perspective and pointed us to focus on the gift that keeps on giving.

After God's victrory for Israel at Jericho the Israelites prepared to continue thier conquest of the Promised Land. However, they were not prepared for what happened next: Disobeidience (sin) was preventing them from moving forward! The Nation was now stuck! They could not move forward with the Conquest until the sin was confessed and addressed.
