Reclaiming #mysticism, #prophets & #christianity in Grounded

You probably haven’t noticed this, but prophets are often outside the fold of the norm in scripture. Whether its Elisha, Elijah or Jesus himself it is difficult for those who stand outside of religion and claim a relationship with God to fit. This is, no doubt, because humans long for “normatives” we long for a … Continue reading

I #believe in #miracles, and other weird #Christian things…

http://bible.oremus.org/?passage=Matthew+3:1-12&vnum=yes&version=nrsv Ps. 2:7-8 7I will tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have begotten you. 8Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.” Brownson says that Baptism is not Salvation, but the promise of … Continue reading

God Gives Enough Bread

Right after Jesus Christ Feeds a Billion people (slight exaggeration) with some crumbs of bread and fish oil (again hyperbolically speaking)….* He then speaks of himself as the bread of life. One where he references the story of Moses, God and Manna… An often overlooked piece of this story is when they gather the bread … Continue reading

This sounds just like “Bible Study”…what’s different about all of this?

My Presbytery is trying to explore the whole 1,001 worshipping communities/church planting.  As we did we talked over exciting interest for starting a house church in the college area…   and we were discussing how to go about, different ideas and resources (i.e. Messy Church etc.) and someone asked “Can someone tell me, how this … Continue reading

Sermon “Is the …

Sermon “Is the Holy Spirit Spiral Shaped” is shaping up to be a Spiritual Success (Gotta love alliteration 😉

“I don’t believe it, but I’m sticking to it. That’s my definition of faith.”

“I don’t believe it, but I’m sticking to it. That’s my definition of faith.” My Brief Theology of Belief vs. Faith Belief is individual Faith is communal   Belief is confessional Faith is God given   Belief is about structuring the world Faith is letting go to God’s plans   Beliefs are what we hang … Continue reading

Spiritual & Religious Chart

What they are trying to verbalize is their journey of faith, and the importance of it. Here there is a little known dichotomy between belief and faith. Church should be a … Continue reading

Think One Person Can Change the World?????

We do too That’s where they got me. I mean I was pretty sure that Oberlin was the undergraduate program for me. I had talked to the dweeby guy, stood up to my counselor “You sure you want to move that far away” (um…DUH I hate high school), and all, but when I got the … Continue reading

Note; comments about the laziness of people are not productive…prayer is…just saying

I’m not crazy…

Ok, I guess that is debatable…I mean who else thinks that establishing a church through Sci Fi/Fantasy is their calling? But often I think that this is the message I want to get out…I’m Christian, not Crazy. Just because I believe in God Just because I try (and fail and then try again) to put … Continue reading
