Faith enough

Do we dare to hope that 2021 will be a better year? Does God really heal today? How much faith do we need to be healed? Why does it seem that God heals sometimes, but not always? When Jesus encounters a desperately sick woman, we learn that even though disappointment is INEVITABLE, hope is INDISPENSIBLE. *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…

The Untidy Aftermath of Christmas

“Before the Prince of Peace had learned to walk and talk, he was a homeless refugee with a price on his head.” – N.T. Wright Have you ever asked yourself, “Is God with me in the mess of my life?” So many stories end with the characters living happily ever after. But what about the Christmas story? What happens to Mary, Joseph, and Jesus in the untidy aftermath of Christmas? Christmas is a true story, a gritty and real story,…

The Weary Soul Rejoices

Celebrating Christmas doesn’t seem like the right response to 2020. But is there something in the Christmas story that can give us comfort and joy even in a difficult season such as this?

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? Even in 2020? Every year at Christmastime, one of our Advent worship services takes a creative turn. 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…

In the Bleak Midwinter

We all have expectations for how our days, our life, or Christmas will go. But what do we do when things turn out to be less than perfect? In this Christmas message for Advent 2020, Pastor Leah Knight Breton answers questions like, Is God still working in my imperfect and messy life? Is there any hope for Christmas 2020? Is there something to learn from the original Christmas story about God working in less-than-perfect circumstances? Christ’s Church is a strategic…

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? We find comfort and joy when we quiet ourselves long enough to hear a new song. Silence can be terrifying, but it can also be just what we need. What if silence is… an invitation? Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and…

A Different Kingdom

How?… 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?

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…

Stopped in Our Tracks

What’s one thing you’re doing now, that if you stopped doing it, it would change your life for the better? The proper response to disruption isn’t to fix it or escape it or get back to normal as quickly as possible. It’s to pull off the road and do business with God. 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.

Divine Encounter

Is God with us when things go wrong in our life? Can I really hope to encounter Him? Does God fix my problems when I pray? If you ask these kinds of questions, know this: It’s often at our point of need or pain that God wants to meet us and do something new!
