    The Forgiveness Factor
    Forgiveness is not only commanded by God, but is crucial for us in order for us to find healing from life's inevitable betrayals. It doesn't mean forgetting, but includes dealing head-on with wrongs, whether real or perceived. We cannot accomplish this in our own strength, but we can find the courage to forgive through God's strength in our lives.

    Healthy Skepticism
    The second installment in the Trust and Betrayal series, this message focuses on the need to cultivate a healthy, biblically-based skepticism based upon our understanding our own fallenness along with that of others, which enables us to not only guard ourselves against betrayal, but to flee judgmentalism and find the ability to forgive. Ultimately, we need the wisdom that comes from God in order to be "wise and serpents and harmless as doves."

    The Never Ending Story
    Mark's blunt ending of his Gospel and his telling of the resurrection story leave us to face the reality of resurrection and the sweeping changes it brings. We are often resigned to live with death, to dwell among the tombs. Jesus has gone on ahead of us, and challenges us to lay down our excuses, our crutches, and all the trappings of death, and to boldly embrace the radical, revolutionary realities made possible by Jesus' resurrection from the dead. Text is Mark 16:1-8.

    Terms of Peace
    We often view Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem through rose-colored glasses. However, Luke points out Jesus' lament over Jerusalem because they did not recognize the day of visitation, the terms of peace that God has extended to them. Do we understand the terms of peace that God extends to us, or are we seeking peace and fulfillment through our own means and methods?
