  • Advent 2019: Four Feasts: Part 1 – Luke 14.1-6

    As we enter the season of Advent, four Sundays when we prepare for the feast of Christmas, I was struck by Luke 14 and the fact that four distinct teachings of Jesus are given, all in the context of a feast that Jesus is attending, and each lesson giving us insight into the ultimate feast that is God’s kingdom. 

    It seems fitting to me as we approach the feast of Christmas that we might consider these four portraits of the feast of the kingdom.  

  • The Unpardonable Sin – Confession & Denial – Luke 12.8-12

    No one is easier to manipulate than a hungry performer. Driven to feed our insecurities by pleasing whatever crowd we can attract, the entertainer in us will do whatever it takes, no matter how disturbing or degrading, to capture that crowd’s flitting attention.
