A new series in Psalms will begin September 10.
"A central thesis then begins to emerge: man is in his actions and practices, as well as in his fictions, essentially a story-telling animal. He is not essentially, but becomes through his history, a teller of stories that aspire to truth. But the the key question for men is not about their own authorship; I can only answer the question ‘What am I to do?’ if I can answer the prior question ’Of what story. . .do I find myself a part?'”
We all believe we’re in some kind of story, some account of history. And we all therefore believe that our task is to understand that story and live in harmony with it. What separates religious from non-religious is that the former believes some deity or power gives shape to the story. What separates Christianity from others is that we believe He entered into that story. And while it is our calling both to understand that story and live out that story, no less important is that we pray through that story--commune, wrestle, implore, and give thanks to the Author. So the series will be an attempt to pray through elements of the story, which will include emphasis on the priorities of Grace’s story.

*We are encouraging a renewed plan of reading and meditation, beginning with the Psalms. To guide you in reading through the Psalms, we've created a bookmark with a 30-day reading plan. Feel free to download, print, and share.

Acts: The Perpetual Power of the Gospel
In the Book of Luke, Luke explains to a doubting audience what Jesus did in his earthly ministry and body, but this was only the beginning! The Book of Acts is essentially Luke Part 2, showing us that Jesus came back from the dead in a glorified body and ascended to the Throne of Heaven where he is Perpetually our Prophet, Priest and King as he births and grows His Church through us his people by the indwelling Power of the Holy Spirit.
