Why Choose Joy (Sermon 12/1/19)
We may have heard it said, “The joy is the Lord is my strength,” but sometimes the truth is that joy is not something we choose, desire or even want.  How can we make an intentional choice of joy to get us through the holiday season? God’s call to us today is to choose joy- regardless of how far we have come, how far we have to go- we can choose joy.

Dane also has written a book titled Ordinary Glory: Finding Grace in the Commonplace”: a book of reflections on the extraordinary potential of an ordinary life. “Ordinary Glory: Finding Grace in the Commonplace” Published author Dane Fowlkes, has led anything but a dull existence—from initiation into an African tribe in northern Kenya where he is known as Jilo, a name that means “a season of celebration,” to living near Gandhi’s ashram on the Sabarmati River in Gujarat, India.

    Grace for Aliens (Sermon 11/10/19)
    NASA continually peaks our interest by raising the possibility of life on other worlds. Articles try to describe what alien life would look like. Have you ever considered that you and I might be aliens? Not in terms of the planet we live on, but in our relationship with God? How about our neighbors? Family? Friends? Does God view us and them as aliens? How can we know for sure?

    The Grace of Healed Relationships (Sermon 11/3/19)
    Relationships are a part of everyone’s life. We say we desperately want them, and then struggle with them. It is an act of true grace to build and maintain any relationship with anyone. Are there relationships in our lives in which we need to renew our commitment to be a person of grace in order for that relationship to flourish?

    What More Do You Need? (Sermon 10/6/19)
    Our perspective determines our responses, or how our responses give away our perspective, whichever comes first. To understand what God is doing in our lives, we must first understand what God is after. In most of what God is doing, He is trying to teach us a lesson of faith.

    The Drama of Anxiety (Sermon 9/29/19)
    All of us at one time will find ourselves struck with anxiety. Anxiety over our kids, finances, future, world. We can let that anxiety define us and cripple us, or we can choose a different way. Peter gives some straightforward advice in how to not allow our anxiety to destroy our lives.

    The Drama of Image (Sermon 9/22/19)
    For many image is everything. How others see me, how I see myself can determine the course of my life. The drama ends when I can rest in the image of how God sees me, and live in that reality.
