“As the years passed, I found I rather liked having an enemy. It sharpened my sense of identity.” — Eugene Peterson, As Kingfishers Catch Fire Continue reading “We like having enemies”
This week at Heights Church we are looking int 1-3 John. We used to call them “postcards” of the New Testament, but these days people look at me and ask, “What’s a postcard?”
Maybe we could call it “New Testament Tweets.” Continue reading “A new and fresh word from the Lord”
1Co 12:26 — 1Co 12:27
If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part gets the glory, all the parts celebrate with it. You are the body of Christ and parts of each other. Continue reading “The body of Christ — we need each other”
We are on 1-2 Corinthians this week at Heights Church.
Some early thoughts in 1 Corinthians: Continue reading “Early thoughts on 1 Corinthians”
On Sundays we are going through the New Testament at Heights Church. We are taking in big quantities of Scripture each week to reset the story of God in our hearts and minds. Continue reading ““Eat This Book” — Gospel of Mark”
This week we are exploring 1-2 Thessalonians and Philemon at Heights Church.
There are two “big” questions that probably jump out in our reading. But I don’t want to go there. Continue reading “Praying the Scripture”
Our church is gearing up to read the New Testament together. We are beginning with Luke. The challenge for us will be to read in community. It’s not just reading alone and then hearing a sermon. We want to set up opportunities to learn from each other. We can structure our Sunday morning service to reflect more on this model.
We can also use this blog.
We can also set up alternative times to engage the text. We read, we have questions, we come with questions and observations.
One idea we are kicking around is setting up a time before worship service on Sunday morning. I would be available to guide people through questions or refer them to good study sources to keep working. The one caveat would be each one coming to the session must be up to date in their reading. It’s not a time to soak in. It’s a time to stretch.
For those who are part of our church, let me know your thoughts.
It’s time to DIVE IN!
