One of the most familiar exchanges in the Bible comes in John 3 when Nichodemus meets Jesus and is told he must be born again to see the Kingdom of God. As Pastor John Young explores what that means, he says it points to the division between natural life and spiritual life, and the fact that we must choose the spiritual each day to effectively operate in God’s kingdom. Message delivered 5/29/2011.

The story of the Wedding at Cana is one of the most familiar in the Bible. In our mind it can turn into some kind of PBS play with Shakespearian actors. But it involved real people … clueless new disciples, a mother who didn’t hesitate to speak with command, and Jesus who was just launching his ministry. As Jesus said, it wasn’t his time yet, but he took the opportunity to demonstrate that he was about to turn the conventional world upside down. Message delivered 5/15/11.
