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

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

 

Gathering Together

Dear Friends,

Tuesday, the Church Council has approved the opportunity for us to gather for worship at LIFEhouse…this Pentecost Sunday! You are invited to join us May 31 at 10 AM, in the sanctuary.

I have posted highlights from the CDC guidelines for churches. Just put this link in your browser  https://1l.ink/2HNS68S.  You may use these as a guide. We are all adults, and I’m sure you will make appropriate decisions for you and your family.

We do encourage you to wear a mask. Please don’t attend if you are sick or in any of the at-risk categories. We will continue to have live worship online for those who chose to stay home. We are one worshiping community, both online and on campus!

I continue to thank God for everyone who makes it possible for us to connect with each other online, especially those who have participated to bring worship into our homes. We have all been blessed by the giving of so much time and the using of God’s gifts by our brothers and sisters who have kept us gathered together in worship and praise. This is a blessing of enormous impact!

I also continue to thank God for those who are faithfully and joyfully giving their financial support of His mission here. God calls us to be generous “in season and out” and so many have answered this call! God considers our faithful giving as a sign of our trust that He will provide.

Love and Joy!

Pastor Dana

 

Hey, brothers and sisters in Christ, why don’t we see more transformation in our lives and the lives of Christians around us?

Bible study, spiritual growth classes, lots of prayer, being in a small group, “going to church”… Why doesn’t my life or the lives of so many around me look more like what Jesus would look like if he were me in any given situation?

What’s missing?

We will spend four Mondays@ 6 PM PST exploring this together. Video, teaching, discussion, and exercises…We will join in a zoom meeting and make progress in transformation.

Joy…

“Sticky” Love…

Identity…

Character-building…

Explore with me.
