"Would You Like to Know Jesus Like Paul Knew Jesus?"

With the Gospels we get four inspired accounts. As Luke recounts this account of Paul’s journey I want us to keep in mind Paul’s account. There’s nothing like seeing apostolic history through the lens of the one making the history. All these years later it’s too easy to miss the gravity of who Paul was, who he became, what he endured, what he accomplished and the nature of his relationship with Jesus.

"WITH – Small Group Series Overview"

It is only when we have a Relationship WITH God that we are able to truly be satisfied in our life and in our faith. Over the next few weeks (on Oct. 24 & 28), we are going to offer you a two-part series based on an incredible book called With by Skye Jethani. This article will give you and your group leaders an overview of the key talking points from the book that we will be pulling from in the discussion guides.

"Moving from Tepid Devotional Reading to a People of One Book."

Today the world is searching desperately for a world-view which is coherent, expansive and which makes sense of the world we live in. We need a faith which pushes us out into the world. We do not need one which pushes us further and further into an interior, privatized faith. Most moralistic devotionals (and sermons, too) actually obscure the gospel because they do not preach Christ as the center of Christian holiness.

"Back to the Future: Tightening Our Grip on What Matters"

The synergy of being reflective and knowing what one believes, understanding the experience of faith and discipleship, and living out the practices that help one grow as a disciple is a Wesleyan Methodist distinctive. There is always the challenge that one will wistfully recall the past heritage, but not make those very elements a part of one’s present spiritual life. In moving forward, one must ask if our heritage is simply nostalgia, or if it still guides the people called Methodists.
