  • Matthew 13:1-9

    This summer we’ll hear from many of the parables, considering not just what they mean, but how they mean. Jesus used this story method as a way of letting his teaching take root. What kind of soil are you? How might God be sowing seeds in your life?

  • The Look of Resurrection. Cunningham

  • For Jesus's earliest followers, the resurrection wasn't an abstract concept, nor was it a one-time event. The disciples began to see and participate in all kinds of resurrections, to the point that it became a sign of their life together. What does resurrection look like today, for you, in our world? How might we learn to see the possibility of new life where no one thought it was possible?

  • We know the story that after Jesus rose, he visited the Doubting Thomas and invited the disciple to touch his wounds and know he is alive. But, what happens next? This Sunday, we’ll explore Jesus’ ascension into heaven. We’ll put ourselves in the shoes of those who watched him be lifted up and we’ll ponder how we might be his witness in the world today.

  • The original ending of Mark’s gospel and account of the resurrection ends mid-sentence. No one sees the risen Christ. Nothing is resolved. Yet the words of the messenger at the tomb remain good news for the women and for us. What if the story continues, just not in the text? How does it read, if the best parts of the story are yet to come?
