Vulnerable Peace

Pastor Evan explores how peace is experienced in choosing to trust that God has included us in this great, big, grand story. We look at Joesph's life and story and walk through the tension he must have felt in how to handle the news Mary had shared. It's not a fame and fortune story. The characters in it are choosing to believe and have faith in the larger story of God. It was a choice. Joesph chose to believe in his dream. Chose to believe in this crazy story. Will we chose to believe we are a part of the story of God, when it's not popular? Will we choose to do our best to pay attention to when God is inviting us to do something specific?

The Good News: Disturbing the peace

Pastor Preston continues in the sermon series The Good News by sharing on disturbing the peace. He introduces us to this phrase, "Sin is culpable disturbance of shalom." As he shares the story of Paul in the book of Romans he breaks down each part of the phrase to help us better understand how the good news of Jesus is transformational and comes as a gift - not a transaction. Our job is to say "yes" to receive the gift.
