I AM the Light of the World

John 9

The purpose of the Light of the World—at the beginning of creation and ever since–is life. It is to reveal and heal (or recreate, or birth) children of God, through whom to shine: more and more life and light, less and less darkness and death.

Are you an optimist, a pessimist, or a resurrection person?

CASKET: Temple – Has God Left the Building?

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ie24n-d84cc6

Haggai 1:1-11; 2:1-9; Mark 11:1-11, 15-19

The true Temple is the place where God and His people are fully present with each other together.

Pastor Jenn

P.S. This is super-embarrassing but must be noted: I make a very glaring mis-explanation in this message. In it I describe there having been three temples in Jerusalem (2 rebuilds of Solomon’s). This comes from my 1) being confused by the fact that the Temple during Jesus’ day is sometimes known as “Herod’s Temple” and 2) my having a hazier recollection of “intertestamental” history than I realized and, not having realized it, not looking it up. 

In fact the third literal Temple has not yet been built. This should not substantively negate the rest of this message but needs to be pointed out and corrected nevertheless.

CASKET: Exile – An Angry God?

Jeremiah 11:1-17

Daniel 9:15-19

If God were unable to be wounded by our rejection of Him, or unable to be infuriated when He sees people in His image oppressing each other and abusing creation, that’s when He would be an unjust psychopath.

CASKET: Sinai – The People of God

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-stwha-d660f9

Exodus 1:8-14; 3:1-14; 34:1-8

Sinai is all about identity. It is about who the Israelites are, and about who God Himself is.
