The Transfiguration
Going BIG for God

David Gleaves, March 3rd

Carol Unwin, March 10th

Jesus asked His disciples to tell Him who people thought He was. He followed up this question by asking them who they though He was. Six days later, Jesus invites Peter, James and John up the mountain, and in a brief moment, heaven touches earth and they see Jesus in His glory, speaking with Moses and Elijah. Join Dave as he unpacks the significance of this event and shows how it links to key Old Testament events and to Jesus with the very same three disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane. 
Looking at Jesus’ response to the man born blind, Carol Unwin considers how Jesus both healed, saved and sent the man at the same time. She draws a parallel between the man’s new-found potential to be an ambassador for God, revealing the glory of God through his changed life and our lives; how we too have been called to “god big for God” and reveal His glory through the miracle of our being touched and changed by Him.  
Beneath the Surface of Our Assumptions
Giving

Leston Blackburn, March  17th

Tristan Mitchel, March 24th

The account of Jesus meeting Mary and Martha following the death of Lazarus gives us a raw and insightful look into some of the struggles these two ladies were facing n the midst of their assumptions and the reality that had broken around them so unexpectedly. What is most striking, though, is Jesus’ response to them, knowing that He is just moments away from raising Lazarus back to life. With great love and compassion, Jesus weeps with Mary and Martha. Their tears move Him to tears. In the process, He brings them to a new understanding of His love as they are invited to explore beneath the surface as assumptions are shaken and faith is restored.  
Tristan shares a message about giving, relating it to  the feeding of the 5000, Tristan draws some insightful parallels about the blessing of giving, and how Jesus used the lad's simple lunch to bless thousands. In the same way, when we bring our little to God, He uses it to bless others, often in ways  far beyond what we might see or perceive.  
The Wisdom of the Word

Leston Blackburn, March 31st

The Bible is not merely a recipe for life, but an invitation to live life in the engaging presence of the Spirit. It means inviting the Lord to invade every nook and cranny of our lives, to come and challenge not only our understanding of Scripture, but the very attitude in which we apply it. It is inviting God to come and reveal to us not only how we are living, but what is happening on the level of our heart in the here and now. The Bible should thus be viewed as a timeless book of wisdom, not a dictatorial book of rules and methods if it is to be properly understood and applied in our culture and our context. Not to do so is to try and understand a timeless and timely God through the unchanging lens of a time long past.
