PARABLES – PART 2 OF 5

June 20, 2018

2 Corinthians 5
1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

Mosquitos And Their Remedies: Myth Busting

From Minda Zetlin: It’s officially summer and you know what that means: Hiking, swimming, backyard barbecues…and mosquitoes. Everyone is bothered by them, but some people think they’ve found the perfect antidote to unpleasant, and potentially disease-laden mosquito bites. Do these magic cures hold up under scientific testing? In many cases the answer is: Absolutely not. Believe it or […]

Pastor As Midwife (Mike Glenn)

By Mike Glenn The Pastor as Midwife Every church I know has a strategic plan. It’s nicely bound and prominently displayed on the shelf of the pastor and/or executive pastor. The vision statement is printed on every document, but no one can really tell you if they’ve seen it, much less tell you what it […]

Before Newbigin, Before Bosch, It Was…

Roland Allen, and it’s too bad more don’t know about him. He anticipated the “mission of God” (missio Dei) theology, he fought hard for indigenous, local, and culturally-shaped local churches, and he continually pushed against missionary societies and denominations having too much control of what was happening on the mission field. Preach the gospel, form […]

Living Like the Power Is Off For Pentecost? 

By Geoff Holsclaw I don’t know how to do electrical work.  When I need to change a light fixture I just look at how the wires fit together on the old one and try to make the new one match.  But I do know you need to turn the electricity off when you are working on stuff. […]

Daily Prayer for May 16

Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:3, NIV

Lord God, we thank you that you have revealed life in Jesus Christ. Grant that we may enter this life through the grace you have given us to recognize Jesus Christ as our Lord, to believe in him, and to hope for all the good still to come as the fruit of his suffering and resurrection. May the glory of the Living One be revealed to the dead throughout the whole world so that even the dead and the unbelieving may be awakened and see his life. Keep us true to what you have given us. Strengthen our faith and endurance in all our trials. Let your name soon be honored among all people so that hatred may cease and the coming of your great day may be foretold in changed hearts and changed thoughts. Protect us this night. Bless us and help us again and again as you have promised. Amen.

Daily Prayer for May 15

Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Psalm 100:3, NIV

Father in heaven, may we recognize and acknowledge that you are God. You have made us, and not we ourselves, to be your people and the sheep of your pasture. Baptize us with the truth we need throughout our lives. Give us the gift to discern who we are and what we should become. Free our eyes from all deception so that we can no longer delude ourselves with short-lived, earthly things. Clear our eyes to see what is eternal in and around us. Make us children, true children, who awake to exult and rejoice in what is childlike and who give thanks to you, O God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Daily Prayer for May 7

We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. l John 4:13, NIV

Dear Father in heaven, we thank you with all our hearts because we know you are holding us by your hand and leading us on all our ways, in spite of all contradiction, strife, distress, and confusion within ourselves. What are all these compared to your love, which does not let us go but watches over us and finally brings us to what is good? Release us from our many burdens. Free our spirits and our souls more and more until we can do nothing but give praise and thanks with heart, soul, and strength for all you are to us. Amen.

Culture And Complentarianism

Historians of American culture know that the “role” of women so important to complementarianism is as much a product of post World War 2 American cultural mores as of the Bible and of the history of women in society and church since the 1st Century. In fact, Lassie is one of your best examples. In a […]
