January 5th: New Year's Message: The Meaning of Life
  Scripture: Eccl 1:1-11, Mt. 5:1-6
 
Video Link:
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Meaning of Life
  PowerPoint: NewYear PPT

 

Excerpt: So, today is the first day of the new year, which causes many to reflect on the meaning of life. As I was preparing the message, I thought of the works of Douglas Adams entitled: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In one of his books he describes a futuristic scene in which a supercomputer is given the question of finding an answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything. After 7.5 million years of calculating the computer is ready to spit out the answer. Watch this little clip to find out...

January 12th: You Are Lovable
 
Scripture:
Luke 4:18-19
  PowerPoint: Loveable


 

Excerpt: You Are Loveable! Have you ever been told you are lovable? If you have, what did that mean to you? Did you believe it and take it seriously or discount it altogether? Your reaction might depend on who said it and the nature of your relationship with that person. If you have a pattern of doubting your lovability, it may be due to painful childhood experiences that left you with insecurities and self doubt.
But the fact is that, we are forever and always lovable. Even if a bad childhood led you to feel unloved and unworthy, you are still lovable. Even if you feel ashamed due to past failures and mistakes, you are still lovable. Even if ...

You Are a Badass

You Are A Badass

>

Excerpt: On a flight to Atlanta last year, I sat next to a young lady who read what I thought of as a rather provocative book entitled: “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero. It peaked my curiosity; I googled the book and to my surprise I found that it contains a wholesome message very much in line with Christian values. So much so that I decided to base today’s talk on excerpt from the book along with Scripture readings that support it’s message. Jen starts of with a self-affirming chapter:
1. You are awesome
“And while there are countless ways that we rip ourselves off, there’s one way in particular that is, without a doubt, the most rampant and the most devastating of all: we invest everything we’ve got in believing that we’re not good enough....You are loved. Massively. Ferociously. Unconditionally. The Universe is totally freaking out about how awesome you are...

January 26th:
Message on Spiritual Enlightenment:
What Prayer is Not
 
Scripture:
Luke11:1-13
 
Video Link:
King of Queens:Prayer
 PowerPoint: Prayer

 

Excerpt: How then should we pray? Can we pray for anything we desire? Can I pray for those Gucci shoes? Can I pray for my football team to win? Can I pray for a healing either for myself or a loved one? The answer is yes, yes, yes, and yes. However, whether God answers all of our prayers or not is a different question. That’s really important to keep in mind.

Prayer at its most basic level is walking and talking with God. It’s about a relationship. So, in this sense, prayer is more of a way of life rather than a thing we turn on and off. Sometimes we can define a concept really well by saying what it’s not. So here is what prayer is not. Prayer is NOT:

- a formula that must be mindlessly recited as a Christian duty...
