Respect, acceptance and appreciation are powerful forces. The prospect of a positive public opinion can motivate us to succeed. But it can also crush us when it’s not there.

In a post-Christian, post-pandemic world, the church will earn the right to be heard by bringing a positive, healing presence to people and society. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

The Way of Reconciliation

Conflict is one of the most normal human experiences. But is it possible that we can address conflict in ways that don’t end up breaking relationships as is so common? What did the first Christians have that enabled them to thrive as a community even when their members made hurtful mistakes? Luke sheds some light on that in Acts 6:1-7.

The Way of Togetherness

Life may be slowly returning to normal, but experts say that many of us still feel like we’re stuck, not living as well or as happily as we want. We’re stuck languishing. How will we find our way to “flourishing” as we emerge into the new normal? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

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…

The Promises, Practices and People of God

We are all made for relational connection, but are feeling more lonely and disconnected than ever. How does God help us build meaningful relationships with each other, even in the midst of a pandemic? How can the promises, practices, and people of God help to bring about lasting change in our lives? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Serpents and Doves

How do I decide who to vote for? How can I have political conversations without blowing up my relationships? What does it mean to vote “like a Christian?” How do I get along with people I disagree with politically? Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Dual Citizenship

How do I balance my faith and politics? How do I handle politically-charged conversation? How can we keep politics from being so divisive? Consider how Jesus handled a politically-charged question in a way that amazed every one and pointed us all in a better direction.

Another Mile

The past year has been filled with tension and strife. Everything that has happened on a national scale is affecting us all on a personal level as well. Is there something we could do as a church and as individuals that would enable God to help us bring healing to our places of work, our schools and our homes?

The Long Game

In the face of so much division in difficult and unjust times, is there a way we can engage people in meaningful ways that will bring about real change? An important lesson about God from the book of Revelation gives us a path forward.
