    Seasons of Trust (February 19, 2012)

    Rachael Barham reflects on Psalm 62:8 and what it might mean to “trust in God at all times”.  As life shakes us, trust has to take on different forms at different stages of our lives and for different challenges, so can we let go of old or incomplete ways of trusting in God and grow into new ways? Here are the links to her poem/reflection and to the song she ended with.

    A Message to Shock the World (February 19, 2012)

    David Moore gives an amazing message about forgiveness and reconciliation that grows out of an appreciation of the difference between the forgiveness of Joseph for his brothers and the forgiveness of Jesus for his executioners. This talk challenges individuals, churches, and societies toward solidarity with both victims and perpetrators in order to participate in God’s work of reconciliation.
