Acts: The Unstoppable Gospel

This Saturday night we discussed Peter’s unlikely, and against all odds escape from prison in Acts 12.  A discussion that made me sweat … and even cross a line of honesty and transparency where I didn’t quite expect to go.

Acts: It’s All About Jesus

This week we had a night of prayer and worship, as we reflected on the themes of Acts (and the early church).  On this Saturday night at Refuge we found Jesus, where he’s always been found … in worship, prayer, baptism, relationships and mission.  The night was all about Jesus.

Acts: For All People

If you are in Christ, you are in Christ. There are no second-class, back of the bus, citizens of Heaven.  We all have equal standing before God, and should treat each other as equals on earth, as it is in Heaven.

This week, we look at the conversion of the first Gentiles into the fold of God, and the continued conversion of Peter’s thinking, as his long held prejudices biases are transformed.

Acts: Ananias and Brother Saul

This week we continue in the conversion story of Saul as another character enters the story; a guy by the name of Ananias.  Saul has been out to destroy the Christians, yet the first word here hears after his encounter with Jesus is … BROTHER.

Enemy number one of the Church when he meets the Christians in Damascus, he isn’t treated like a stranger (which would have been kind enough).   He’s not even just treated like a friend.  For the first time in Saul’s life he’s now a part of a community who understands how deeply they are forgiving.  So much so, that they can turn to someone like Saul, and welcome him with open arms into the family of God.

Acts: The Conversion of Saul

This week, we look at the conversion of Saul, as we see the Gospel break through the most difficult barrier of all; the barrier of the human heart.  The barrier of our own self-righteousness and own moral goodness.

Matthew: The Final Days of Jesus

It’s the most important week, of the most important person who ever lived.  It’s a story that doesn’t need to be changed or enhanced with fancy lights or pounding on a pulpit.

We all have sinned.  We all will die. We can live forever.

Because … Jesus lived. Jesus died. Jesus rose again.

That’s the simple, intimate and humble story of Easter we shared together as a church this Easter Eve at Refuge.

Matthew: The Unforgiving Servant

Christianity is a thinking faith.  Jesus wants us to think.  To use the brain He gave us.  This is why he often taught in parables.  This past Saturday night we looked at the parable of the Unforgiving Servant, and we did so in a more organic discussion format.

Through parables, Jesus is teaching his disciples (then and now) what the Kingdom of Heaven is like.  This Saturday as we discussed this topic together and at our tables, we discovered that because of Jesus, we can forgive the inexcusable, because God has already forgiven the inexcusable in us.
