Jason Miller - In our final week of To Build an Altar, we hear from members of our community who have created tangible memorials to the goodness of God in their lives.

Jason Miller - When you build an altar to recognize the gift you've received, the next question you might ask is: is this altar calling me to stay here, plant some roots, and resist the temptation to keep moving? Or is it compelling me to keep walking forward, trusting that the God who was good to me here can be good to me anywhere?

Ryan Yazel - In week two of To Build an Altar, we find goodness in the mundane.

What are some ways we can challenge ourselves to recognize the goodness in the simple, unremarkable things around us?

James 1:17; Acts 17:24-29

Jason Miller - In week six of our Everyone an Icon series, we asked again what is the God like whose image we bear. We also celebrated baptisms.

Beth Graybill - In week five of Everyone an Icon, we paused to reflect on the tradition of baptism. We heard stories from a few friends in our community regarding their own baptism experiences, and reflected on how we can identify with the life of Jesus through baptism.

Jason Miller - In week four of Everyone an Icon, we asked where our anxiety about God comes from. We turned to Exodus 20, Matthew 2 and 3, and Ephesians 1 and considered whether Jesus is an exception to the character of God or a revelation of the character of God.

Jason Miller - In week three of our conversation about bearing the image of God, we’re continuing to ask what we know of the God whose image we bear. We consider the implications of a God who is 3-in-1. If God is a community, then we cannot bear the image of God alone.
