Father’s Day 2019

I am very sorry for the poor audio feed on our Father’s Day video presentation. Please listen closely though. The content of this message is vital. The notes follow below.

From Poison Make Medicine

Over the last weeks we’ve worked through 1 Peter to better understand suffering, trials and difficulties. To climb up to Bible ground concerning those circumstances which leave us asking God “why?” There can be no doubt that our sufferings can often lead us down undesirable pathways in search of relief or distraction. But Suffering can also bring us to a…

Suffering Like Jesus

This is the third in the Restart series on trials, difficulties and sufferings taken from the Book of First Peter. The first installment helped us to see that our tough times can be a route to Joy if we would only stop long enough to turn from what things we don’t have to meditate on the things we do.

We begin at verse 3 (Restart will return to the…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Greed

Considering Greed I considered my ways and turned my feet to Your testimonies – Psalm 119:59 There are several indicators or evidences that Greed may be creeping around trying to get a grip of your disposition.   The purpose of this study is to both highlight those sour “fruit” and to offer in opposition a lesson on greed’s opposing virtue:…
