Genesis - A New Beginning: A New Dream, Part 2

We live in a culture which is entranced with the idea of the American dream. We have been told over and over again that we must have a dream so that it can come true. The story of Joseph includes a dream that God himself plays a part in.

Genesis - A New Beginning: A New Fight

When we meet Jacob, we can ask him what it was like to wrestle with God. Except all of us at some point in our lives wrestle with God: some of us wrestle for our children, some for our marriages, some for our careers.

1 Corinthians #29 - How to Avoid Fundraising Events, Part 2

This true understanding of how God uses gifts from us to release fresh spiritual blessing into our lives is as old as the hills and as different from the prosperity gospel as can be.

1 Corinthians #29 - How to Avoid Fundraising Events, Part 1

We live in a time where some are very wealthy and some are struggling. We live in a time where much of the Western church seems to have a superficial spirituality. How much of that is due to our captivation by the idol of materialism?
