Wednesday Night Recap

Friends,

Last week we discussed Chris’ painting on the conversion of Paul.

Many have asked where they can see Chris’ paintings. You can see them at chriscookartist.com and I highly recommend visiting the site.

Prior to his conversion Saul was a very religious man who saw Christianity as a threat to Judaism. Indeed Saul participated in murdering believers. We discussed how a religious person could so easily turn to violence. ¬†Some believe that the problem is fundamentalists. Any person who claims that their religion is the only true religion is a potential problem, however, we agreed that the real question is what is a persons fundamental. (more…)

10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Last week we discussed the lesson of the loaves. Jesus feed over 5,000 with two fish and five loaves. The disciples did more than witness this miracle they served the masses and bussed the tables. Immediately after they headed out across the lake – each with a basket of fish and bread. These baskets were a tangible reminder of Jesus power and promise to always provide. (more…)

 

Wednesday Night Recap

Friends,

Last week we began a series based on Chris Cook’s paintings. We discussed a painting which depicted Jesus baptism.

This marked the beginning of Jesus earthly ministry. We talked about the courage it took for Jesus to be baptized knowing what the future held in store. We also discussed how John’s encounter with Jesus changed John. Because John knew that Jesus was the Christ John was able to lead a life devoted to the truth.

We agreed that the Holy Spirit is active in our world but many don’t see God’s miracles. In his painting Chris included people on the opposite shore going about their daily lives oblivious to the miracle happening in the river. My prayer is that we will never fail to see the hand of God at work in our lives and the lives of others.

Tonight we will be discussing John:9 – Chris’ painting is titled “Was blind, now see’
