Deadened by the daily grind, drifting in a sea of confusing cultural ideologies, blinded by what we’ve always been taught or been told, we wonder. What is true? What is real? What is the meaning of all this? Why all the suffering and injustice? How can I find fulfillment? How can I make a difference? How can I live without regrets?
Jesus gives signs. The signs point to a new, full life that he offers. But neither Jesus nor the signs nor the new life fit into the tidy religious box of our expectations. And so they are easily misread or distorted or dismissed altogether. They demand openness. And eyes to see. And faith.
The Gospel of John was written to help everyone see the signs--signs that can lead us to a new, full life. Whether you're the most hardened skeptic or the most ardent fan, join us, expecting to think hard and fresh, as we study our way through the Gospel of John. This is for you.
Join us on a cross-ministry road trip as we take an inside look at the ministries of Moon Valley. Each week our ministry leaders will share what's happening in their ministry and why it's so important.
Hide. Run. Withdraw. Shut down. Clam up. Fall back on clichés. Fake it. It’s what we tend to do in our relationship with God when things aren’t going well-when we’re bothered by injustice, faced with failure, plagued with doubts, oppressed by illness, dogged by a depressing darkness in our souls.
If you were a good person, you wouldn’t feel this way, right? Must be something uniquely and irreparably wrong with you, right? Better hide that internal mess so nobody finds out, right?
Wrong! In the Psalms we find followers of God--some of them Bible heroes--variously and openly struggling with anger and doubts and questions and disillusionment. They don’t stuff it; they sing about it. And sometimes there’s cursing involved. Far from hiding this kind of thing in the fine print, it’s smack dab in the middle of the Bible, showing us how to be honest, authentic, real--and liberated by it. How refreshing! Join us as we study the Psalms.
