#DontJudgeABookByItsCover
Proverbs 14:30 says: "A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones." Envy resents God's goodness in the life of others and ignore God's goodness in our own lives. Therefore, we should stop comparing ourselves to others and their highlights. Listen as Pastor Jim unpacks how our modern interpretation of envy is "judging a book by its covers."

    #BirdsOfAFeather
    You have heard the expression "birds of a feather, flock together;" It simply means we hang around people who are similar likes, appearance, and behaviors. Proverbs gives us a similar saying: "Walk with the wise and grow wise, for a companion of fools suffers much harm." Pretty straightforward. We should be wise in the friends we choose to hang around. However, what about those difficult people in our lives...or better yet, the modern day "sinners and tax collectors" no one wants to associate with. Pastor Jim unpacks this friendship issue, take a listen.

    Learning To Live With Grace

For Jonah is was about an "us vs them" mentality, but God meant it to be just "us." We can be reminded that grace is for everyone...including "them." Listen as Pastor Jim unpacks the last chapter of Jonah.

    Taking Second Chances
    Our God is a God of second chances. God will accomplish his purposes even if we aren't willing participants. Jonah discovered you can't out distance God. Jonah convinced the Ninevites to repent so that god may relent. In this sermon, we will discover that our own trajectory matters more than our location.

    Running From God
    Running is in our nature. When we bump up against something we don't like--we tend to run. Jonah was no different. Jonah ran from his mission. He ran by sailing on boat in the opposite direction of his mission. We, too, might be sailing in the wrong direction. Listen as Pastor Jim unpacks Jonah chapter 1.
