[Upcoming] The Wisdom of the World and the Wisdom of God – Mar 3, Third Sunday in Lent

:
In person worship and live on YouTube at .

The world values a certain kind of wisdom which has a veneer of excellence about it but which, when exposed to the foolishness of the preaching of the cross, reveals itself to be empty and ineffective.

How to Rejoice in Sufferings – Midweek Lent Service

Paul invites Christians to rejoice in the hope of the glory of God, but also to rejoice in our suffering, knowing that suffering ultimately leads toward the future hope of the resurrection and new creation in Jesus.

Readings and sermon were delivered by Pastor Aaron Mueller.

Christianity and Stoicism (Ep86)

The ancient philosophy Stoicism is making quite a comeback in today’s culture, largely by offering an alternative to our culture’s commitment to personal, instantaneous pleasure as the highest good. And why Christianity certainly agrees with Stoicism about the problems of our post-sexual revolution Western culture, the two worldviews also diverge at important points.

In this episode, Chuck and Aaron talk about the similarities and differences between Christianity and Stoicism.
