Goal: We will move from Resurrection as believed and claimed theology to life’s practices.
Resurrection is the central event of Christian life. It’s narratives both in history when Jesus was raised …from the dead, but also in our own lives need defining and re-imagining for real life habits and cultural practices. If death is the ultimate enemy that has it’s grip over our lives, resurrection (of Jesus and therefore ours) sets us free, free enough for us to imagine God’s Kingdom here and now in our lives.
Need: We are bound to our own “business as usual” and distracted by our lives’ demands on us, keeping too busy to “create, make [manufacture] and control” that we’ve kept ourselves preoccupied leaving hardly any room for the wonderment, deeper meaning and at the mysteries of resurrection.
Resurrection is often presented as something to be argued, debated, proven and believed. While those are necessary about Resurrection, and have served the cause of Truth claims. But, through the narratives of the first Easter day, the events and persons, we learn resurrection is meant to be carried out into practices of our daily lives, more than cognitively believed, just as Jesus exemplified it’s meaning in his life. This sermon series will focus on the practices that Resurrection demands from us, as believers in Jesus, baptized into his death and resurrection.

Lent Sermon Series “Pray as You Are”
Goal of this series is to raise a praying-church- committed, persistent in-community praying.
Jesus said, “My house shall be called the house of prayer …for all people, but you have made it a den of robbers” If a church is not guided or let into prayer, it’ll become a “commercial center” of sorts. There’s no new clever program, just urging people to come and pray, pray in your spaces, best in groups and families.
We have finished the series on “Church & the Gospel Responsibility” through the book Faithful Presence, where we focused on being present with people with intentionality to bring God’s presence through the Holy Spirit to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. These will be good resource to have on web-based where people can go back to listen and think and discuss. There’s a sense of “new paradigm” being set for understanding the gospel and the church as a practicing community- i.e. not a social set up for same old tradition for gaining self-propagated vision of power, status, and achieving personal dreams.[+] Show More
