Okay, so we share the Good News about God's eternal love and the gift of life He offers by sharing our stories and inviting people to join us on the journey. Then they actually take us up on that invitation. Now what do we do?
We have a gift to share, but when the time comes we are often too scared to share it. How do we go about sharing the Gospel? What do we say? How do we say it? What kind of training do we need? Rev. Dave draws on the story of Jesus healing the man possessed by demons to help us sort it out.
In a world where people suffer and struggle, we possess a gift that God has given to us to share. What is that gift? It is the gift of life.
When one who was lost is found, when one who wandered away comes home, when relationships that were broken are mended God celebrates as surely as a happy puppy wags its tail.
Just as a dog waits patiently for it's owner to return, and the father waited patiently for the Prodigal to return, so our heavenly Father waits for us so He can speak the sweetest words in the world into our ears.
In this series Rev. Dave explores what our dogs can teach us about the loving nature of God, beginning with the fact that God goes looking for the lost, and always finds them.
In a world wracked by violence and hatred, where sorrows find us all too easily, can we really dream of a day filled with joy? The prophet Isaiah thought so, and so do we.
In the midst of great unrest and war the prophet Isaiah dares to envision a day of peace ushered in by the arrival of a new king. Can that vision speak to our circumstances today?
We all hope and long for something more, something better, something real and lasting. The world tells us that our hope is found in "stuff". Isaiah reminds us that true hope is found only in the grace of God.
