  • Revealing the Grace that was always there.

The Samaritan woman at the well (John 4: 1-42)

  • She’s theologically astute, politically aware, clearly respected in her community, and feisty.
  • Traditional Christian interpretation, however, has turned her into a lazy, slutty sinner, an outcast in her community

WHAT IF: Her Story has been misunderstood, mis-shared, mis-represented

ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD Pt 6: Meeting the REAL Jesus transforms you

encounter with God 6ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD Pt 6: Meeting the REAL Jesus transforms you:

What do these encounters look like? What ‘should’ they look like? How does God view humanity? How did He react to key characters in the Bible, and how did they respond back to Him. How can we encounter a God we can trust? This message is about seeing the goodness in who God really is. Too many in our culture have a terrible picture of who they think God is and then they say they don’t believe in ‘that’ god. It is time to correct those poorly informed perspectives and show God for who He ‘really is’….LOVE. If we say we know God, then we need to look like Him, and God looks like …LOVE. Encountering God is supposed to be GOOD NEWS, not scary.

TODAY: We will be looking at three different individuals and observe how each of them responded when they literally meet Jesus.  Something in them causes to react to the gift of grace Jesus extends to each one of them.   The religious world they thought was accurate and that tradition has told them not to mess with, is suddenly thrown into chaos when they encounter the one who can actually give life.  Religion cannot do that.  Hopefully you can question the path of faith you have been put on and find out if it needs a course correction, or a completely new path.  Enjoy!!

Encountering God is supposed to be GOOD NEWS, not scary.

TODAY: We take a look at how David reacted, responded to God during some very trying and difficult times.  We also touch on the topic of the use of icons and gestures that can help us remind our mind of the oneness we have with Christ.  (or help us recognized the presence of Christ at any given moment)…. The Western Evangelical church has lost some helpful tools by misjudging other faiths and religions.  I hope you enjoy this one….. so much more to come!

You may have heard God loves you, but did you know He LIKES you too.  The message the ‘typical’ church sends to the world is that God is really ticked and his anger is building…well….that God doesn’t even EXIST!! And we wonder why people feel condemned by the message ‘the church’ seems to send.
