  • Easter in the Wild - Church in the Wild

    Easter in the Wild - Church in the Wild

    04/04/2021

    Easter is about a revolution. Beyond the eggs and bunnies, beyond the new outfits and sunrise worship, beyond all that is something wild, something unpredictable. Something a little dangerous. Welcome to a church in the wild!

  • Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Bad Deal

    Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Bad Deal

    28/03/2021 Duración: 35min

    What does it take to be on top? Jesus final temptation - to rule the world if he'll worship the devil - is a clue. What kind of test was that? And how does it shed light on the path Jesus calls us to walk today?

  • The Test of Good Times - Bad Deal

    The Test of Good Times - Bad Deal

    21/03/2021

    Bad times test our faith. But good times test our faith in a whole different way. Moses warned God’s people that the privilege they would experience in the Promised Land could be toxic to their faith if they weren’t vigilant. So as we near the...

  • The Miracle of a Cross - Bad Deal

    The Miracle of a Cross - Bad Deal

    14/03/2021 Duración: 31min

    It's one thing to ask if Jesus is really with us in hard times. It's quite another to ask if we're willing to stay with Jesus in those same hard times. Jesus wants us to have a mature, vibrant faith, one that is strong enough to support us as we...

  • Testing God - Bad Deal

    Testing God - Bad Deal

    07/03/2021

    It's natural to ask where God is in tough times. But according to Scripture, that desire to test God is a sign of an immature faith. How can a mature faith carry us through troubled times?

  • Bread  Circuses - Bad Deal

    Bread & Circuses - Bad Deal

    28/02/2021 Duración: 38min

    We've all heard "You're not yourself when you're hungry." But what if the opposite is true? What if something as basic as hunger shows us our true selves? When we're not the masters of our desires, we will miss what God wants to do in our lives...

  • Food  Fun - Bad Deal

    Food & Fun - Bad Deal

    21/02/2021

    Some of our strongest temptations involve our cravings - food, sex, attention, connection. Why is desire so powerful? And how do we live with our desires so they connect us to God rather than poison our lives, relationships and faith?

  • The Path of Wisdom - From A to Z

    The Path of Wisdom - From A to Z

    14/02/2021 Duración: 45min

    Knowing how to follow Jesus today can be complex and difficult - especially because our world of polarized politics, social media and technology is so foreign to the worlds of the Bible. That's why Scripture invites us to grow not in knowledge, but...

  • Making All Things New - From A to Z

    Making All Things New - From A to Z

    07/02/2021

    We often struggle to see where God is at work, especially in times of personal or cultural hardship. How can we learn to see God all around us, continuing to create new goodness? How can we learn to live in faith that God's not finished with us?

  • How to Beat a Rigged Game - From A to Z

    How to Beat a Rigged Game - From A to Z

    31/01/2021

    So much of our world is grounded in competition – who gets the most votes, has the most money, the best looking family, best grades and so on. No wonder they call it a rat race. It’s nothing new – we’ve been fighting to be on top for...

  • Good and Evil and Spaghetti - From A to Z

    Good and Evil and Spaghetti - From A to Z

    24/01/2021

    We all want to know why bad things happen to good people. But Scripture is much less interested in the origin of evil than the goal – to poison humanity against our creator. Jesus shows us what a faithful human response to sin looks like – and...

  • God the Creator - From A to Z

    God the Creator - From A to Z

    17/01/2021

    To say God is our creator is to insist we live in a particular story - one that believes that God created all people to enjoy peace and justice. How can we identify the barriers to flourishing for everyone, and join Jesus in creating a better world?

  • Whats the Point? - From A to Z

    What's the Point? - From A to Z

    10/01/2021

    Life is miraculous and - from the perspective of the universe - much rarer than we realized. How does the miracle of life invite us to know God as our creator. What can we discern about our purpose from the fact that we're alive?

  • Love it When a Plan Comes Together - Christmas at the Crossroads

    Love it When a Plan Comes Together - Christmas at the Crossroads

    03/01/2021

    The New Year is a great excuse to soar up to 30,000 ft and look at the big story of God's plan. Christmas isn't a day or even a season. It's a new reality Jesus invites us into. Now we can all be part of God's giant story of redemption!

  • New Year, New Name - Christmas at the Crossroads

    New Year, New Name - Christmas at the Crossroads

    27/12/2020

    None of us can wait for 2020 to be over - but secretly we all know that nothing *magical* happens at midnight on January 1. Fortunately, our assurance for the future comes not from a calendar, but from the Christmas story: God is with us!

  • A Plan B Christmas - Christmas at the Crossroads

    A Plan B Christmas - Christmas at the Crossroads

    20/12/2020

    It's a bit of an understatement to say that this Christmas isn't what any of us planned. But disruption is part of the first Christmas. Mary shows us - unlike her ancestor David - what faithfulness in the midst of disruption looks like as we...

  • Singing Loud for All to Hear - Christmas at the Crossroads

    Singing Loud for All to Hear - Christmas at the Crossroads

    13/12/2020

    As we decorate our homes and shop for gifts, it's easy to forget that Christmas is about peace on Earth and goodwill for everyone. The work of justice can be hard - and believe it or not, sometimes the bravest thing we can do is celebrate loud and...

  • Persistent Hope - Christmas at the Crossroads

    Persistent Hope - Christmas at the Crossroads

    06/12/2020 Duración: 38min

    Too many Christians today wonder what the point of caring for the world is if we all go to Heaven after we die. But at the heart of the Advent message is an insistence that Jesus' coming is good news for the whole world. What does that look like?...

  • Present to Advent - Christmas at the Crossroads

    Present to Advent - Christmas at the Crossroads

    29/11/2020 Duración: 41min

    2020 has been a rough year - rough enough that many of us are rushing to celebrate Christmas as soon as possible. But the Scriptures caution us not to rush past our pain. What healing is available to us when we choose to wait with God's people on...

  • Pilgrims in COVID - Catalyst in the Time of COVID

    Pilgrims in COVID - Catalyst in the Time of COVID

    22/11/2020

    It's hard to be a pilgrim when you can't go anywhere. But being a pilgrim is more than just a desire to travel. It's a commitment to seek God in the unexpected. And we've had plenty of unexpected this year. So how can we seek God in the...
