All of us experience loss as we navigate life. As we experience any level of loss it is important to learn to grieve well. Grief is never something to get over but to walk through.
All through the scriptures we see biblical characters battle prayerfully with the emotions of loss and grief. As part of this talk Marjorie interviews Jo Mckinnis on the tragic death of her little boy a few years ago and how she has walked this journey with God.
Marjorie introduces the Spring 2019 teaching series 'The Emotionally Healthy Church'. Looking at a good day and a bad day in Jesus' life, how did Jesus handle strong emotions? She challenges us to be honest with our emotions and submit our desires to God.
Nick presents the vision for the Well for the next season focusing on planting people, growing the church and redeveloping the site to increase the capacity of the church.
Nick and Marjorie cast vision and talk through the culture at the Well. We all have a part to play. Every person, everyday everywhere in dreaming for our city.
Nick and Marjorie look at what it means as a follower of Jesus to walk out your life with integrity as a “new creation” in our current culture. Unpacking the reality that our identity will be built on one of two realities - knowing that we are deeply loved or longing to be loved and proving you are lovable.
We didn’t “find God” - He always initiates and we respond. Marjorie looks at the balance between “receiving” and “giving” in our Christian walk. God sets us up with opportunities to mature from being babies in the faith; to children; to adolescents; to trusted sons and daughters.
Marjorie explores our identity as citizens of heaven, yet living in flesh and blood. Marjorie uses the three chairs of identity as a helpful tool for walking this out.
Continuing our paradox series, Marjorie introduces us to a God with a pure holy heart who rolls up His sleeves and gets His hands dirty amongst humanity. In Matthew 9:9-13 Jesus challenged those who envisaged salvation by separation, because He models salvation by association.
Marjorie introduces the theme of paradox and apparent tensions throughout the scriptures between points of view. She focuses on identity. We are all unique yet before the cross we are all the same. We are ‘saints with a sin problem’.
