#Sacrifice, #Parable of a #church

A congregation came to Jesus and said, “Good teacher, what must we do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus said, do the commandments. “Love and respect your neighbor. Have courage to do new things.

#Ruth #rejected SermonTitles Let’s talk about #hell (practical applications)

My very savvy 7 year old asked me today what Hell was. Can I just say that a. I’m glad he asked me b. I’m glad he didn’t have a concept yet Because, I’m a Pastor and I’m always a little afraid of what is seeping into my child’s brain theologically I have no doubt … Continue reading

#God #time #daylightsavingstime #philosophy (you know little concepts)

The deep and complex issues of this campaign is summarized well here https://storify.com/breyeschow/concerns-raised-over-2015-oghs-campaign These are amazing issues, that are too complex to address in one blog post, please read … Continue reading

Love

We like to limit God to say God only believes in one kind of love two kinds of genders and sexuality is easy to define– placing all those who don’t fit into these “normal” parameters into a category of… “sorry God just messed up when God was making you” “God only believes that these aspects … Continue reading
