The Why’s Men — Part 1

Christmas as we celebrate it today in America is so bound up in traditions that we rarely notice how startling it really was.  Pastor John Young asks and attempts to answer some deep questions about Christmas.  For example, “Why did Christmas happen?” and “Why was Jesus born?”  Message delivered 12/4/2016.

At about minute 24, a technical problem garbles the recording.

Here is a YouTube playlist of the songs we sang in worship.

Intersect: Walking by faith, continued

In this segment of Pastor John Young’s series from the book of Hebrews (Intersect: Where the invisible God meets our visible lives), he drills into the issue of how living in faith requires understanding that we are part of a bigger picture.  No only are we not the center of that picture, but also we can’t see it all.  Message delivered 10/16/16.

Intersect: Walking by faith

It seems like the hardest part of faith in our culture in America is when we go without, when we don’t have things, when things happen to us we feel like somehow God isn’t giving us what we deserve, or God not loving or valuing us enough. We see ourselves based on our experiences. God sees you the way he created you. There are things you have not experienced yet because you keep yourself in a place where they can’t happen. Message delivered 10/9/16.

At about minute 28 in the podcast church member Andrea Concannon shares about the time in her life when she realized she needed more in her spiritual life than simply going to church.

Intersect: Obedience in faith

Hebrews 11 deals primarily with obedience in faith.  God wants us to go beyond where we are, to experience “more”.  To some of us that means something bigger. To others a different circumstance. The more, Pastor John says, is always of the heart. It’s always experiencing God’s presence in a richer way. It’s always focused on things that are about our character. We want circumstances to be different so that life can be easier. He wants our hearts to be different so it doesn’t matter what the circumstances are. Message delivered 10/2/16.

Intersect: The meaning of the Tabernacle

The writer of Hebrews takes us on a tour through the Tabernacle, showing how the symbolic objects there … the lamp stand, the show bread, table, golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant … illustrate how God wants to meet us in our daily lives.  Message delivered 8/28/16.
