On Paying Attention

How can I manage all the online voices competing for my attention? How can fasting help me pay attention to God? Can the Bible really make a positive difference in my life?

It’s time to pay more attention to where we’re paying attention. *Christ’s…

Christmas 2020 Monologue

Can you imagine hearing the Christmas story retold by someone who was actually there? A story we’re all familiar with, seen from a new perspective that meets us today, right where we are?

We replace the sermon with something we call the “theatrical monologue.” This year, Pastor Bryan Wilkerson retold the story from the perspective of Luke, one of the authors of the…

Song of Silence

How can I find comfort and joy in a season of isolation and stillness? Why is silence so uncomfortable? What opportunities does silence present?

Discovering Life

When it comes to solving problems, we often get stuck in predictable patterns of thinking and acting.  But sometimes the only way to solve a problem is to step outside those familiar patterns. Disruption can prompt us to look and listen for answers in new ways, and new places. Jesus is waiting for us outside the box, in that uncomfortable place, and he can lead us to new and better things.   Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace…
