  • Serve - Catalyst to the Future

    Serve - Catalyst to the Future

    15/11/2015 Duración: 23min

    Imaging serving and immediately summon feelings of obligation, of duty. But Paul speaks of Christian service as freedom – a freedom to slavery. Love is the key – when we serve out of love, our service has no bounds. When we serve out of love, no...

    Love - Catalyst to the Future

    08/11/2015 Duración: 19min

  • Ghosts - Monsters

    Ghosts - Monsters


    Ghosts are stories of regrets – spirits that haunt the living because they have “unfinished business”. In truth we are the haunted houses. We carry round unresolved issues from our past. By comparing two biblical Sauls – the King and the...

  • Zombies - Monsters

    Zombies - Monsters

    18/10/2015 Duración: 35min

    Zombies are mindless creatures who follow their most basic desire - to eat and eat and eat. They represent our fear that humans are most basically animals driven by destructive instincts. We distrust our cravings, our loves. But Scripture tells us if...

  • Werewolves - Monsters

    Werewolves - Monsters

    11/10/2015 Duración: 29min

    The Werewolf is a person who has a beast living inside them. We know what that's like: to have something inside us, something we try to control. But just like the monster stories, no matter how hard we try, the Wolf gets out. And our sin doesn't...

  • Vampires - Monsters

    Vampires - Monsters


    Vampires scare us because they are creatures that live by taking life from others. Our culture encourages this sort of behavior, but we know it’s death for us. We find freedom in the way of the cross – Paul shows us that God is not a taker, but a...

  • A Screen Between Us - Social

    A Screen Between Us - Social

    10/09/2015 Duración: 38min

    When there's a screen between us, it becomes easier to ignore our humanity. On one hand, we bully, shame and blame online much more readily than if we are face-to-face. On the other hand, because of this culture of online shaming, we rarely express...

  • Screens are Spiritual - Social

    Screens are Spiritual - Social

    06/09/2015 Duración: 28min

    We don’t naturally think about technology from a theological perspective. But since everything is spiritual, we must learn how to approach technology with God in mind. While the first questions that come to mind about screens in particular is a...

    Infinite Jolly Ranchers - Summer Break '15

    30/08/2015 Duración: 18min

    We're taught only to be friends with those who can benefit us in some way. Even the Ancient Romans valued this kind of friendship. But Jesus shows us a different way: to engage in friendships for what you can GIVE, not what you can get. When we love...

  • 433 - Top 10: Songs

    4'33 - Top 10: Songs

    23/08/2015 Duración: 29min

    Though faith begins as an exciting journey, it often crystallizes into legalism. We become convinced God only works through particular, narrow forms of faith. John Cage's unique musical experiment, 4'33" is the soundtrack for Jesus' conversation...

  • The Middle - Top 10: Songs

    The Middle - Top 10: Songs

    16/08/2015 Duración: 21min

    We all desire to fit it somewhere. We spend a lot of time developing social "currency" so we can earn our place. But as God tells the Corinthians, the life Jesus offers us is upside down. God doesn't value what the world does. Our currency is...

  • Another One Bites the Dust - Top 10: Songs

    Another One Bites the Dust - Top 10: Songs

    09/08/2015 Duración: 26min

    When we've been hurt, revenge feels good and right. But taking revenge only feeds the cycle of violence, turning victims into victimizers. Forgiveness offers us a way to break the cycle and find life.

    02/08/2015 Duración: 24min

    Our desires often cause us anxiety as we wonder how to satisfy them. Do we have enough... money? ...love? ...success? ...faith? Jesus promises us that when we orient our desires by seeking God's kingdom first, we find how our lives make sense.

  • Magic - Top 10: Songs

    Magic - Top 10: Songs

    26/07/2015 Duración: 29min

    Everyone faces crises of faith. In those moments, we can’t help but wonder if faith is like a kids’ magic show – just smoke and mirrors. But the difficult questions of faith can be a gateway to a deeper reality, a faith that can only be...

    White Wedding - Top 10: Songs

    19/07/2015 Duración: 27min

    Billy Idol tells his pregnant sister that today is a nice day for a White Wedding. In doing so, he flaunts the purity culture that tells his sister her worth comes from what she's done. His attitude is a picture for us of how God rescues us: we are...

  • Pompeii - Top 10: Songs

    Pompeii - Top 10: Songs


    The song "Pompeil" by Bastille is about what it feels like to live through the End of the World. When our world is rocked by tragedy, we tend to look backward, to idealize the "Glory Days" of the past and pine for what we've lost. But God's...

  • Killing Me Softly - Top 10: Songs

    Killing Me Softly - Top 10: Songs

    05/07/2015 Duración: 30min

    Shame keeps us from embracing the love God offers us. Much like Roberta Flack, we fear exposure, convinced that someone who knows us as fully as God does can only despise us. But Jesus promises that anyone who comes into the light of his presence...

  • All You Need is Love - Top 10: Songs

    All You Need is Love - Top 10: Songs

    28/06/2015 Duración: 25min

    We’re taught to be suspicious of our desires, to rule over them and subject them to our minds. But our desires are the core of who we are, since we’re created in the image of a God who is love. The practices of fasting and feasting help us orient...

  • Stay With Me - Top 10: Songs

    Stay With Me - Top 10: Songs

    21/06/2015 Duración: 24min

    We're taught that complete freedom is the path to happiness. But as Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" reveals, that path leaves us isolated and alone. Psalm 119 celebrates the freedom we find in pursuing commitment, not running from it.
