A mathematician's unilluminable room, Jesus' tough ask, and a call to be Lamplighters.
Is our salvation tied to how thankful we are? Pastor Chad starts with an embarrassing story from karate class and talks about the importance of saying thank you and meaning it!
Pam Auble, our preacher today, talks about what means to live and pray and even struggle with a Thankful Heart. Sometimes we think being thankful takes place AFTER we receive something, but looking closer at the scripture we see the importance of starting with a thankful heart as we go through life. Be blessed by this encouraging and challenging word. Also, pick up Pam's book called "Think about Thanks"
we put together a drama to see the quadrilateral at work but also to discuss the heroin epidemic that is plaguing our community. How is the Christian to respond to this issue that is hurting the lives of so many in our midst?
How lessons I learned from ringing handbells help me understand the role of Christ in my life during difficult times. The Quadrilateral (Tradition, Scripture, Reason, Experience) can only take you so far...we need something more.
Amy Auble delivers a sermon (from earlier in the summer) at Bryce Canyon National Park where she was in ministry all summer. Thank you for sharing Amy!
John Wesley says our Christian faith is vivified by personal experience. Perhaps, too, our understanding of one another and our connection as human beings--our experience of one another--makes a vital difference in how we love each other.
This is the second installment of our series on Wesley’s Quadrilateral. What is the purpose of scripture? What should we use it for? Is it too dangerous? In what sense is the Bible the "Word of God"?
