David Hanson is leading an introductory Christian Apologetics course Thursday evenings@ 4 pm Pacific

Here is the course description:

Our society tosses around the term apologetics without much deep thought about what it actually is or how to properly do apologetics. I truly believe that Jesus calls us to engage in apologetics by developing a unique robust intellectual account of our Christian faith to share with those who are open to it. As Peter encourages to do in 1 Peter 3:15,

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…”

So, I invite you to join me in an eight week course learning about Christian apologetics in order to discover the wealth of knowledge that God has revealed to us. In our lessons we will be learning about the following questions:
● What is Apologetics?
● What difference does it make if God exists?
● Why does anything at all exist?
● Why did the universe begin?
● Why is the universe fine-tuned for life?
● Can we be good without God?
● How could a good God allow suffering?
● And more!

The Sermon on the Mount, beginning with the Beatitudes, are not so much a list of do’s and don’ts, but instead a description of, as Dallas Willard would say, “a With-God Life”…

…and Psalm 15 may be the Old Testament’s “Sermon on the Mount”…

Daily Word…Psalm 14…The search for one good person

Making value judgments of the past…Tearing down statues…Good luck finding one “good” person ever…Diogenes tried…but, then again, God did find one

Daily Word: Is there such a thing as healthy shame?
Psalm 12 speaks of using manipulation and lying to our neighbors…
What is toxic shame and is there healthy shame?

Insights from Dr. Jim Wilder

Because God wires us differently, our personalities, as it were, we might react differently to the world. Here is a self-observation…

Daily Word: Psalm 13…On not confusing personality traits with spiritual growth

Ladies of LIFEHouse ….

We will be hosting a “mini” She Rises women’s conference this Sunday, July 19 from 12:00 – 5: 00 p.m.  in Natterstad Hall. This is for Middle School age women on up. Due to COVID19 , the annual conference was held on line this year and is available on-demand .  Be sure to bring your own lunches and snacks, All safe health protocols will be in place.

“”She Rises Conference gathers women of all ages and backgrounds and from all over the world and this year it will be ONLINE! The gathering started as “GodChicks” and has grown from a mere handful to thousands who come together to be inspired, to learn, to worship, to laugh, throw confetti…eat chocolate and drink coffee .

In a time when there is so much uncertainty, isolation, and chaos in our own worlds we want to host a conference that is centered around the GRACE & TRUTH of God! He calls us His beloved daughters, encouraging us to truly be a force on the earth for good when our world so desperately needs hope. We want to reclaim ground. Join us as we hear great messages, as we worship God, as we engage with each other, as our hearts and lives are healed, and new friendships are made!  Be a part of the family…it really won’t be the same without you.”

Sermon: Cain and Abel…Is Envy the Original Sin?

First in our series Under The Water Line: The Stories of Our Foundation

Cain, the first human being born on earth murders the second…
It starts with envy…followed by anger, bitterness, hostility, resentment, contempt…violent revenge

Does this have to keep being our story?

With insights from Dr. Jim Wilder and Dr. Jordan Peterson
