NEXT: A Study of 1 Peter / January 2014

The Edge: / December 29, 2013
What if we stopped playing it safe and stepped out onto the edge. The view from there is amazing... but you have to be willing to take the risk and step out there. Life with Jesus was never meant to be safe, he lived a dangerous life, commissioned dangerous disciples and calls us to leave behind a "zombie" life. You were never meant to be the walking dead.

Incarnate: / December 2013
He came. He lived this life. The very earth he created was kicked by his feet. The air he gives filled his lungs. A world devastated by our own sin and choices, rescued by God himself... in the flesh. Christmas is God with us. The rescuer has arrived. Christmas is a magnificent solution for a massive problem. Jesus was not just a man... He is God incarnate.

Be Transformed / April 28

Upside-Down Church: The Kingdom Parables / March, April 2013
Everything about the Kingdom of God is backwards from our own nature. To win, we must lose - to be restored, we must be broken - to be great, we must be the least - to be first, we must be the last - to receive, we must give away - to grow, we must understand how little we know - to live, we must die to our-self. His kingdom - God's Kingdom - is upside down.

Vintage Christmas: Christmas in the Gospels / Christmas 2012
What comes to mind when you think of Christmas? What traditions or memories come to mind? What is the image you get of the "nativity"? Do the cards, the songs, and the movies have it right?

Christmas in the Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Have a very Merry Vintage Christmas.

FEAR: Overcoming life's deepest fears / Fall 2012
This Weekend at Livingway we start a new Series - FEAR. We are a society obsessed with fear - from movies, to world events, to things going on inside our heart. Fear can either paralyze us or motivate us to greatness. This series addresses the various types of fears and Gods attitude towards our fearfulness, and principles for overcoming anxiety. I'll see you there... unless you're too afraid.

Be Present: Learning to be in the Now /Fall 2012
Stop. Pay Attention. Focus. Where Are You? Where is your heart? Where is your soul? In a million different places. Distressed. What needs to be done? Who won the game? Talking on the phone. Checking twitter. Updating your status. Wondering what "they" are doing. What's going on "out there." Will I ever get ahead? The past. The future. Distracted. Out of Control. Be still and know that I am God. Rest. Be rooted. Immersed. Listen. Find your true voice. See things you didn't see. Engage. Be. Here. Be Present. Learning to live in the now with God and others.

Unleashed: How the Church Began (The Book of Acts)/ Spring - Summer (2012)
Jesus rose from the grave, now what? This is the now what. Acts is one of the most exciting books in the New Testament. It is aptly named because Acts is a book of action. It is the story of how the Christian faith moved from a tiny beginning in Jerusalem with a handful of people to the most important city in the world (Rome) in just 30 years. Read this book and you’ll discover how a little band of believers in Jesus changed the course of world history.
