You are a unique and unreproducible
miracle of God!

What does Geography have to
do with the stories from the Bible? Everything. From
the culture to the weather to the people who live next door - they
all shape who we are and how we live. By looking at the
geography surrounding the stories of Abram, Lot's Wife, King David
and others - we'll find a few details that will help us understand
their stories and live (and learn a little for ourselves).

Mental Health has always
been a challenge in any society or culture - but during the
pandemic it has been a silent and unseen enemy that has been
stalking even those who have been otherwise unaffected by
COVID-19. An enemy that has a face and a name and can be
confronted on the battlefield is one thing - but something that
comes quietly and often without warning - and robs us of sleep,
relationships, health and love is quite another. Tapping into
resources by Henri Nouwen, David Ludwig, Henry Cloud, Diana
Gruver, David Cook - we will wander through the Scriptures and
the modern day church to see how King David, Job, Elijah, Martin
Luther and others face depression, anxiety, pain and darkness.

The prophets are not
easy to listen to - all that "repent, turn around, get right
with God" yelling and screaming they do. But are they
really yelling and screaming - or are they just
whispering? Is the loudness and grating of their words
really them - or is it us? Are we so anxious and worried
and afraid that even a whisper sounds like someone is
going to spend time talking about the Prophets and using Tod
Bolsinger's new book Tempered Resilience to frame our
study. You won't need ear plugs - but it still won't be
easy to listen to the prophets - unless we listen by faith!

So, you are an expert
at canoeing - your calling is to find
a passage from where you are to where you need to be - only
you've run out of water. The only thing in front of
you are mountains - lots and lots of mountains. Now
what do you do? We are in uncharted territory as a
church. And our future as individuals and as a
community will be determined by what our next steps
are. Fortunately the church has been "here" many times
before - so as we leave our canoes behind we can expect some
help from Daniel and Abraham and Moses and Peter and Paul as
we step into the unknown and discover an amazing future that
God already knew and prepared us for!

The Psalms reflect
our life. From the highest highs to the deepest depths
- and sometimes in the space of just a few verses.
J.I. Packer said, “Wait
on the Lord" is a constant refrain in the Psalms, and it is
a necessary word, for God often keeps us waiting. He is not
in such a hurry as we are, and it is not his way to give
more light on the future than we need for action in the
present, or to guide us more than one step at a time. When
in doubt, do nothing, but continue to wait on God. When
action is needed, light will come.”
This study is looking for that light!
