Return By Another Road

The wise men who visited Jesus returned to their own country "by another road." So many of us have arrived at a new revelation of God through Jesus and feel disconnected from our past. What if we are called not to abandon our roots, but to return to them from another direction? Speaker: Pastor Scott Austin

Cultivate Inner Peace

The Gospels tell us that Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness to pray as he cultivated his own consciousness of God in the midst of his activities. Christian sages and mystics from the past and in the present day have emphasized the link between contemplation and meditation and continuing Jesus’ acts of healing and peacemaking.

WE

What is the difference between “us” and “we”? Well, the answer can be found in English grammar. (Sorry!) Church is not just something we ; it is also something we are called to . And in order to be effective and successful in pursuing this calling, we need everyone to join in.

US

The message of scripture and the consistent witness of the church are clear: the body of Christ is stronger and more reflective of the image of God when more people (and more types of people!) are part of the mix. We need “you” in order to be the best version of “us.” Speaker: Pastor Scott Austin Part of the series “Church: Why Bother? https://artisanchurch.com/worship/sermons/church-why-bother/”

Approach 2: Moral Logic

For those who find the "verse by verse" approach unsatisfying or unconvincing, it may be helpful to think instead about the broad principles expressed and implied in scripture. Identifying the found in the Bible and seeking to apply it consistently to social issues of our day is a valid method of applying biblical truth.

Approach 1: Verse by Verse

The most obvious (if not the most helpful) approach to this topic is to examine the relatively few verses in the Bible that directly address LGBTQ+ matters. Although these verses have traditionally been used to exclude queer folks, it is reasonable to reach a different interpretation after a more careful reading of the text.

Little Faith

The story of Jesus and Peter walking on water includes the oft-quoted phrase "You of little faith!" But it is evident from the story that even "little" faith is enough to experience a miracle. What if we celebrated our small moments of faith, rather than feeling belittled and insufficient?

Hungry in a Deserted Place

The miracle of the loaves and fishes is one of the most well-known stories in the entire Bible. But there are details all around the main event of the story that we may not have considered. We take a look at some of those details, wondering about what God might have for us along the margins.
