Elevator Pitch: The Good News in One Chapter, Romans 8

Elevator Pitch: The Good News in One Chapter, Romans 8

The theology of the gospel is an endless source of books, papers, dissertations, and blog posts. But isn’t there a simplicity to the gospel that can both be easily conveyed to the unfamiliar, and yet also readily rediscovered by those for whom it’s perhaps become too familiar, like a song you haven’t heard in a long while? If so, where might you look? Many have found the eighth chapter of Paul’s letter to the church at Rome as the simplest and strongest summary of the gospel. Think of it as the proverbial “elevator pitch”—the main idea designed to capture your attention. 2020 may offer us the opportunity to make plain the gospel in simplest terms; Romans 8 may prepare us for it. But the year ahead may also find us most in need of hearing again the essence of what first captured us.

Isaiah: The Story Beneath the Story

Isaiah: The Story Beneath the Story

What can an ancient word of prophetic challenge speak to a modern world? More than we might imagine--more than we might prefer. But the same voice that issues a stern challenge also offers a stronger hope--and that hope is timeless.

Where Angels Fear to Tread

Where Angels Fear to Tread

When it comes to the issues that hold the cultural (and the church) conversation captive, what does it mean as a believer in Jesus to think, speak, and love well? How do we find the courage to be present, humble and dignifying in matters we perhaps feel ill-equipped or too intimidated to engage? Led by Pastor Patrick Lafferty on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm beginning this Wednesday, October 2 for 6-weeks of consideration and discussion of topics where, you might say, even angels fear to tread. Childcare available upon request (please email ).
