“I wanna be a lionYeah, everybody wants to pass as catsWe all wanna be big, big starsYeah, but we got different reasons for that…” ~ Mr. Jones, by Counting Crows Everyone seems to have an innate desire to be significant somehow.

The Sacred Story Resumes

When the first Back to the Future movie ended, the words “To Be Continued” popped up on the screen. It was sort of a shock to me back then that a movie was created with the sequel already fully intended. Lord of the Rings was another movie series told in three parts. It felt like […]

We incorporate meals into our three main holidays here in the U.S. – Thanksgiving, Christmas and Superbowl Sunday. There’s just something inherent in us as humans that we commemorate things by sharing a common sustenance. That’s probably why God incorporated […]

Last week we watched as Jesus performed the most wide spread miracle in all of His public ministry, feeding the multitudes on a mountainside. Today in our text we’ll pick up with an equally impressive miracle, the story of Jesus walking on the water and then another wide sweeping miracle of healing. All of this […]
