An Upside Down Christmas

The original Christmas story turned the world upside down. 

Jesus’ birth into the world as the baby of a young, unwed mother in circumstances of poverty and danger challenge our traditions of consumerism and comfort. 

It’s as if we have taken the radical upside down story of Christmas and turned it back right side up. 

In this series, we explore this amazing story through the themes of HOPE, PEACE, JOY, and LOVE.

"Love: An Upside Down Christmas" on December 18th, 2016 was a highly participatory gathering and was not recorded.

A Quiet Revolution of Love

This series explores Jesus and his message in the gospel of Luke.

The term 'Quiet Revolution' refers to a time in our history when, among many other rapid changes, the people of our province left the organized 'Christianity' they had experienced en masse.

We wonder though if the 'Christianity' that was rejected was the 'Christianity' of Jesus--if you will. After all, the people that wanted Jesus dead were staunchly religious folks.

The Good Life: Finding it in the Middle of the Mess

The term 'the good life' refers to the life that one would like to live. Its a common feeling to have a sense that there is a 'good life' out there--a life we were made for or that would be more fulfilling than the life we're living. Jesus himself said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full" (John 10:10). This sermon series explores Romans ch. 8 and what it has to say about finding 'the good life' in 'the middle of the mess' of life.
