Sometimes Christians need an attack of sanity. In the middle of all the religious nonsense, cliches and superficial stuff, we need to be reminded that there really is a God who loves us and bends down low to walk among his children. This message from Steve may just do it for you.

Are you waiting in the darkness? Stuck in the between time, it’s easy for us to get discouraged, frustrated and impatient. But God made a promise…and he always keeps his promises. Jesus will come back to clean up the mess. We will see him. And it will be enough, more than enough.

Jesus doesn’t fit into anybody’s mold. Jesus, God in the flesh. Jesus, lover of drunks, traitors and whores. He’s certainly not as religious as some think he should be. Don’t miss this message from Steve as he teaches from the Gospel of Mark about our surprising savior.

grace 101

Life simply won’t work without the safety net of God’s grace. If you’re like me, what defines you and your life includes your issues, your secrets, your need to achieve, your desire to please people and your ambition. It is therefore important to place grace at the very foundation of such a life to understand God’s unconditional acceptance and love. If you don’t and then fail big time (and we all will), your life will end up meaningless and empty.

As you may know, most of my life I’ve been a Scrooge about Christmas. While I still sometimes struggle with that, I’m a lot better. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I’m growing in Christ, maybe Anna’s Christmas spirit is transforming me or it could be that I’m no longer a pastor with all the work a pastor has to do at Christmas.

I suspect that, if the innkeeper had known the whole story, he would have made room in his inn. If he was savvy in marketing, he could have made a buck or two on it. If he really knew, he could have created a “Jesus Suite” and advertised it in the newspapers…maybe even put up a bronze plaque that read: “Jesus was born here.”
