Hurricane Ida Relief

Friends in Christ, I hope that you and all your friends and family on the Gulf Coast were safe and secure as Hurricane Ida passed through, leaving destructive flooding and wind damage in its wake. I praise God that my in-laws, who live in a New Orleans suburb, just happened to be here visiting us in Flower Mound when the storm struck! My prayer is that all the people you love were able to evacuate or find a place of refuge to ride out the storm. Hurricane Ida’s death-toll is still... Read More

Try Vulnerability

Alyssa Robinson shares why she struggles with vulnerability. I don’t understand vulnerability. There. I said it. I’ve seen all of Brene Brown’s Netflix specials, watched a few Ted Talks, and read a couple of her books, but when it comes to practicing vulnerability, I just don’t get it. Until recently, I considered myself an open book. Even today, I honestly answer any questions without hesitation about sex, politics, religion, all of the heavy-hitter topics.... Read More

Jesus as Lord

Rev. Karen Chraska shares what it means to her when she says, "Jesus is Lord." In G.F. Handel’s oratorio “Messiah” my favorite and the most thrilling part from the Hallelujah Chorus is when the chorus sings, “King of King and Lord of Lords!” It gives me goose bumps every time. I believe these words, taken directly from Revelation 19:16, are true. In Confirmation classes I have taught students that Jesus is Lord. In seminary I had to... Read More

Jesus as Prophet

Rev. Bill Mauldin shares why he loves exploring who Jesus was as a prophet: I have always liked a little bit of danger; I think it adds a little spice to life. As a teen I really enjoyed the danger of contact sports. I always felt it wasn’t much fun unless you could get hurt. I had basketball goal in my back yard in high school that I painted the words “No Blood, No Foul." That was just a more fun way to play the game. I extended this... Read More

Jesus as Teacher

Rev. Doug Meyer shares the qualities of a good teacher and how Jesus exemplified the role of teacher. For me there are few things more fun than a class with an animated engaging teacher: one who captures my mind through a multisensory teaching style helping me encounter the subject from many different angles. That is the way Jesus teaches! Jesus, the teacher, used everyday items and occurrences to capture the listener’s attention and heart. From a wheat field to a water well, to... Read More

Jesus as Friend

Rev. Daniel Humbert  shares his understanding of who Jesus is as a man, focusing on his role as a friend: I have been tremendously fortunate to have had many close friends throughout my life. They have been there for me and with me through thick and thin, good times and bad. Like all good friends they offered me connection, commitment and companionship. A true friend will never let you down. My earliest “best” friend was Keith. He and I lived down the street... Read More

Our hope this month is that, by exploring the full humanity of Jesus and the many human roles he held during his ministry on earth, we can come to a better understanding of his... Read More

What is the Church?

The church is the body of Christ—all the people who accept Christ’s gift of salvation and follow Christ’s teachings. It is much more than a building. In the Bible, “church” never refers to a building. It always refers to people—the people who follow Jesus Christ. Being part of the body of Christ means we are called to be continually shaped to be more and more like Christ. This happens by letting the Word of God, the Bible , guide our faith and our lives,...
