In this message Pastor T. C. explores the way we locate ourselves ethnically, racially, and relative to others in society. In Acts 21, Paul attempts to navigate what Dr. Willie James Jennings calls the “diaspora anxiety” of the Jerusalem elders. But it fails spectacularly. We need a better way.
In this message, Pastor T. C. continues in the “Zip Code” series by exploring the concept of “Faith Stream Awareness.” Recognizing the streams/traditions/denominations that have formed us and their relationship to other branches in the Christian family tree.
Pastor T. C. kicks off a new teaching series called “Zip Code: Homing in on Who We Are to Know Where We’re Going.” This message explores a passage from Paul’s letter to the Colossian church about finding identity in Christ. Identity sets a trajectory that leads us to our destiny.
The season of Christmastide is giving way to Epiphany, when the days lengthen because the Light is breaking in. In this message, Pastor T. C. draws upon the light/darkness motif in the prologue of John’s gospel to point to the ways the Light of Christ is breaking into the darkness of our world.
