The Ways of God

Who is the greatest? Who the least? And what of Christ – to be betrayed into human hands, killed, yet to rise again. The ways of God are not our ways, but can we learn to live this different way? To welcome the least of these, the little ones, and to cast off our selfish desires to be noticed above the other. Yes, may we find the way of the Cross to be the way of life in this our time.

Without His Cross

Scriptures: Genesis 17: 1-7, 15, 16; Psalm 22: 23-31; Mark 8: 27-38

In Mark 8: 27-38, Jesus poses two questions to His disciples:
“Who do people say that I am?” Jesus’ disciples responded with hesitation, but their answers reflected that the people did not know who Jesus was.
Jesus second question was more significant and was directed to the disciples: “Who do YOU say that I am?” Jesus begins to teach.

Is it enough to know what others say about Jesus? Or is there more to understand? In this Gospel passage, Jesus is preparing His followers for His dramatic journey to the cross, to His death, and to His resurrection. There are many Life Lessons taught by Jesus. One disciple would stand out amongst the rest, Peter, the Rock.
Would the disciples comprehend everything that Jesus was teaching?

Come reflect upon the cross of Christ. As followers of Jesus Christ, “we cannot bear the image of the cross, without bearing His cross.” Do you want to learn more about the significance of this statement?

Into the Wilderness

As we enter the Lenten season, we look at how Jesus entered into his years of public ministry. Until now, Jesus had been quietly living in Nazareth and preparing for what God had in store. Much like a play at the theatre, John had the attention of the audience. Then in walks Jesus seeking to be baptized by John. If we had been there to witness the event, I imagine it would be a moment we would never forget! The heavens were opened, the Spirit came down onto Jesus like a dove and we heard a voice from Heaven! Almost too hard to believe! And yet, that is how Jesus began. You could say Jesus stole the show!

At this point, we expect an encore followed by a series of outstanding sold-out shows. Instead, the Spirit of God sent Jesus out into the wilderness for 40 days. God’s ways are not our ways. It is now our tradition, to spend the 40 days of Lent orienting ourselves as Easter people.

Fully Human, Fully God

Listen to the sermon Joel Russell-MacLean

Watch the recent Worship Service

Bulletin: Bulletin February 14

Scriptures: 2 Kings 2:5-12; Psalm 50:1-6; Mark 8:27-38, 9:1-10

Peter, James, and John went up the mountain with Jesus to pray. Jesus and his clothing were changed. He was suddenly shining and clothed in brilliant light. This is referred to as the transfiguration of Jesus.
This story, like every story in Mark, is about Jesus’ identity, his character, and his greatness. However, since this event reveals something about Jesus, it therefore reveals the truth about God and about being human as well.

Carried By Friends

Listen to the sermon Joel Russell-MacLean

Watch the recent Worship Service

Bulletin: Bulletin February 7

Newsletter: Weekly Letter February 7, 2021

Scriptures: Isaiah 40.21-31; Psalm 147:1-11; Mark 2.1-12

Songs: 

Joel Russell-MacLean

Jesus looked at the paralytics’ friends faith. They had carried their friend to Jesus. They had found a way to bring him right in front of Jesus despite the crowds by lowering him through a hole in the roof. Seeing their faith, Jesus healed the man who then stood up on his own two feet and walked home carrying his mat.

Are there people in our lives whom God is asking us to support with faith? Are there people in our lives whom God is asking us to carry through illness or suffering?
