For the season of Lent, we decided to turn off the recorder, and turn to one another in a time of reflection, repentance, and reconciliation. Different people shared part of their stories, and we looked to Jesus to show us how to lay down our lives for others on the way to the cross.

Something Worth Noticing

Christmas is over, but since we just made this fuss over the birth of this baby, it seemed like a good idea to see what happens next. We followed Jesus’ ministry, looking at how he is the light in the darkness. As we did we realized that we could (1) act like the star of Bethlehem, (2) pointing others to Jesus who is the Lamb of God. We watched as(3) the light of the Kingdom of God broke into this world, and saw that this was (4) a different sort of light, that creates a different sort of community, by the light of the Spirit of God.
