    Too Many Choices
    In a world of limitless options, there’s only ever been one — Jesus.
We live in an age where there are an infinite number of places and ways to find meaning, purpose, life, truth, etc.  We also live in a culture where we’re taught and told that any of these options are equally valid.  And yet, 2,000 years ago, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).  It was a radical statement then, and it’s perhaps even moreso now.
 
Through this series, we’re taking a deeper look at just what Jesus meant in this verse, and what it means for us and our lives today. As we do so, we’ll gain a better and deeper understanding of who Jesus is and what following him looks like 2,000 years after he walked the earth.  Jesus isn’t one option among many, Jesus is the way, the truth, the life.

The legend of the phoenix is a fascinating one.  At the end of its life-cycle, it bursts into flames, reducing the once-glorious bird to ash. But out of those ashes is born a brand-new phoenix.  The resurrecting imagery of the bird is one that has been embraced by the church since the early church father, Clement of Alexandria.  There is even a possible  reference to the phoenix in Job 29:18, which the NRSV translates as, “Then I thought, ‘I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days like the phoenix.”
 
During the seasons of Lent and Easter, we are going to follow the Path of the Phoenix, from the ashes of Ash Wednesday to the flames of Pentecost, by reading through the entire Bible in those 90 days (you can learn more about B90 here).  The sermons each Sunday during this series will come out of our reading from the previous week. Whether you are reading every page of the Bible as part of B90, or follow along with the sermons each week, we’re glad you’re joining us on this journey.

    Is Anyone Listening?
    We are able to hear Jesus more clearly when we see Him as He truly is.
I think if I were to ask you if God is still speaking to us today, most all of us would probably say, “yes.” At the very least, we would all agree that at least theoretically God is still speaking to us today. But if I were to ask you what he’s saying, would you have an answer? Once we move out of the theoretical, it gets a little trickier. So the question isn’t really, is God still speaking, but rather, “Are we listening to what God is saying?” Over the course of this series, we are going to look at what Jesus had to say to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3 to help us “tune in” to what God is saying to the church, and to us, today.
