Heroes of Faith: If you could change any part of your past, what would you change? For some of us, we would re-write painful memories. Some would change moments of failure. Some might demonstrate the depths of our love. It is a universal reality that every person has regrets - moments that they would change or at the least redeem. In this sermon, w…
 
Heroes of Faith: My dad once told me that if I tied my shoes myself that we could go on a boat ride. I was 5. Or however old one is when learning to tie their shoes. I missed my velcro's. Stylish and functional. Now I had to learn how to do it myself or I missed out on the wonderful Alberta lake mist in my face on a summer evening. Worth the risk. …
 
Heroes of Faith - Daniel 1 & 2: For many of us, when we think of the book of Daniel, our minds immediately go to images of Daniel in the lion’s den or his three friends in a fiery furnace. The first six chapters of Daniel are filled with dramatic stories of courage and deliverance. When we look deeper, we also discover rich examples of God’s people…
 
Heroes of Faith - Genesis 22:1-18: I’ve never started a conversation about faith with this story: “Hey have you read the story about when God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son?!” Child sacrifice doesn’t seem to be high on the appropriate on ramp for those sorts of conversations. How do you trust a God who askes a man to do that? Let alone the son …
 
Heroes of Faith - Isaiah 53: Rejection is an unavoidable aspect of being human. Proverbs 18:14 asks: “The spirit of a person can endure sickness, but a wounded spirit, who can bear?” The implication is—no one can. Rejection has many painful faces that leave us feeling alone, defeated and outcast. So, the question burns, “How can I go on living with…
 
Heroes of Faith - Malachi 3: If I were to offer you $1,000,000 in 10 - $100,000 bundles of large bills and ask you, with cash in hand, if you would be willing to give one of them back to the Lord as a tithe (which means a tenth) would anyone walk away from that invitation? Why is it however over the course of our lives, if you were to work 40 years…
 
Heroes of Faith - Jonah 1-4: We’ve all heard the story of Jonah, or at least parts of it. We’ve definitely heard about a stubborn prophet being swallowed by and spit out of a big fish. This small book, found in our library of Scripture, has had an impact that is out of proportion to its size. It’s four chapters have captured the imagination of arti…
 
Heroes of Faith: We all have one thing in common—each of us has or had a mother. At the same time, there is a wide variety of feelings about our mothers. For some Mother’s Day is a time of joy, for others it is painful, and even for others it reminds them of people they lost. To that end, as we gather this weekend, we will respect the tension betwe…
 
Holy Spirit: We need to consider a question – “what on earth is the Spirit doing?” and consider the implications of this question for ourselves – as individuals and for the congregation or church of which we are part.Rightly we ask: how and in what ways am I being called to be part of what God is doing in the world? And how are we, together as a co…
 
Holy Spirit - Ephesians 5:8-20: Before returning to His Father, Jesus promised his followers he would not leave them alone, but rather send the Holy Spirit in His place to carry on the story of God in our Lives. Too many believers, however, after receiving the gift of God’s salvation in Jesus seem to take the posture of waiting for the return of Je…
 
Gospel of Mark: He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! This Sunday we will gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus! On Good Friday we experience the pain and sorrow and wonder of self-sacrificing love. And then we wait. We wait for what is yet to come. We wait for God to do more than we could ask or imagine. And he does! Jesus journeys through deat…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 11:1-11: In the Christian calendar, this weekend we enter the Passion week of Jesus, his last on earth before his death and resurrection. This week of his life comprises a quarter of the Gospel accounts and it does so for a reason. This Sunday, we will sink our roots into Mark 11 and 14 and enter into the experience of Jesus a…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 12:41-44: As Easter approaches, we recall Jesus being arrested, unfairly tried, beaten, nailed to a cross and then placed in a sealed tomb. But on the third day, Jesus rose from the dead and exited the tomb alive! You might say, Jesus went “all in” … for you and for me. When Jesus asks people to follow him, his invitation has …
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 2:13-17: It’s when we are sick that we truly appreciate a doctor who takes time to notice, care and attend to our needs. But a doctor who avoids the sick is useless. The same is true with the spiritually sick. What good is the healing grace of Jesus unless it is shared with the broken? Watching Jesus in the Gospel of Mark remi…
 
Joshua - Joshua 1:1-9: The wellbeing of our lives, home, church, city often hinges on the power of promises kept or broken. The impact of making, keeping, receiving promises is enormous. God has been famously faithful to us over Foothills' history, and will yet be as we move into new territory in the next era. God promises, ‘As I have been with Mos…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 1:16-20: There are two main "calls" within the human experience: self-indulgence and self-denial. The former being impulsive and the latter being an investment. The first an easy sell, the second a tremendously difficult thing to do. Jesus' call to his followers is an invitation. Humanity can say, "no thank you". But what is t…
 
Gospel of Mark - Mark 1:1-11: Lent, popularly understood as a season of joyless custom and duty, carries almost too much religious baggage for some people. How then do we keep the gospel front and center in this season of shadows? The cross keeps our gospel focus clear. Lent is a season to journey with Jesus in his passion, to survey the cross, tak…
 
Identity in Christ: God sent the prophet Jeremiah to the potter’s house for a lesson on living a life submitted to a purposeful Potter’s hands. The clay cries, “I have been slammed on to a hard spinning wheel. I’m flying out of control. I am being squashed and squeezed and I know a fire lies ahead”. And Potter (God) says, “Carefully I threw you on …
 
Identity in Christ: Henri Nouwen (beloved theologian & writer) wrote: “One of the tragedies of our lives [as Christians] is that we keep forgetting who we are”. He is probably more right than wrong … which is a main reason we have spent the last several weeks in Colossians teaching and reminding ourselves about the overwhelming, life-changing treas…
 
Identity in Christ: Is it hard to sift through the crowd of voices speaking or yelling their own convictions these days? Now what about those in the church? Theology aside today, what about political allegiances? Beliefs on how Christians should act and navigate these times? Feel weary? This week we're going to put in our best efforts to sift throu…
 
Identity in Christ: Did you know that an oak tree’s roots spread out beneath it four to seven times the width of it’s crown? These roots provide nourishment that transforms a tiny acorn into a towering tree and create an anchor that holds against the fiercest storm. The apostle Paul tells us that we are rooted in Christ. What does being rooted in C…
 
Identity in Christ - Colossians 1:24-2:5: What if for twenty-four hours Jesus wakes up in your bed, walks in your shoes, lives in your house, assumes your schedule. Your boss becomes his boss, your mother becomes his mother, your pains become his pains? With one exception, nothing about your life changes. Your health doesn’t change. Your circumstan…
 
Identity in Christ: This week we focus on the Identity of Jesus as the ‘Head of His Church’ and the implications for us as his followers. It is interesting to note that Jesus never asked US to build HIS church, nor did he suggest he was intending to build OURS! Jesus was adamant that He would build His Church… so what is the part we are to play rel…
 
Identity in Christ - Colossians 1:15-23: Years ago I visited Grand Canyon in Arizona. I will never forget the overwhelming experience. As I walked to the edge of the canyon my jaw dropped in the enormity and magnitude of what my senses were trying to absorb. I get this sme sensation and response when I read Paul's description of God's Son in Coloss…
 
Identity in Christ - Colossians 1:9-14: Carl Jung once said, 'The World will ask you who are you, and if you don't know, the World will tell you.' The search for identity is at the core of our being. Our message series, 'Identity in Christ', invites us to dig deeper in owning our identity from the very heart of God. Paul desired the Colossian churc…
 
Identity in Christ - Colossians 1v1-8: Have you ever looked at an old photo of yourself and wondered why you were wearing what you did? If you were to go look at yourself in the mirror now who would you see? Who are you? What are you about? Why do you do what you do? As Charles Taylor (1992, 25) influentially put it, “A person or group of people ca…
