  • Just as joy doesn't require the absence of sadness, so peace doesn't require the absence of trial.

    Christian peace is a rightness of relationship with God and a rightness in relationship with others that manifests in a contented soul security that is able to weather any trial, suffering, or sin. Because peace is not based in circumstance, perfect conditions are not required for peace to be enjoyed.

    If you are anxious,  remember and enjoy God's work on our behalf, and pursue the confidence of faith to trust God even when we can't see clearly.


  • Joy is not optional for the Christian who believes in God. It is commanded and it is expected. But also, having joy doesn't dismiss some of our most common emotional experiences like sadness and grief.

    We look at four of the most pervasive killers of joy, and consider what it means to fight for joy in the commonness of today's cynicism and disappointment


  • Last Sunday we  looked at the foundation of love. Love is not all we need. But if we don't have love, our words will lack power, our faith is nothing, and our sacrifices will matter little. Love is that crucial for all of life, and for our emotional health.


  • Jesus prays for the future unity of the church in his final farewell to his disciples. He prays that the church would be unified in faith, so that the world would believe in him.

    So if the church is not unified like Jesus prays, the world will have limited view and great challenge in believing in the works of God.
