Let All Things Rise: "Sown In Weakness"
Posted by VCC on March 31, 2019 at 12:45 PM

This is the time to press into God! We’re in a five-part series that will help as we move toward Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter. Invitations These hold the key to all God has done, is doing, and will do with the universe, His Creation, you, and all humanity. In the *song “All things Rise” it says: “All things once sown in weakness You raise in promise Your beauty arches above it all”. So this morning we’ll be talking about how much of what we *experience with God has been sown in weakness. Lent and Easter are all about this. They *exemplify what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1:27 (ESV) But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.

Let All Things Ride - "Light From Darkness"
Posted by VCC on March 17, 2019 at 12:22 PM

I hope you are engaging this season of Lent with some level of sincere intent. If not, there is no time like the present to start. This is the time to press into God. We’re in a five-part series that will help as we move toward to Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter. These hold the key to all God has done, is doing, and will do with the universe, His Creation, you, and all humanity. One the primary teachings of scripture, from beginning to end, is the foundational understanding that God calls out light from darkness. Lent and Easter are all about this. About our being brought into the freedom of the Light of God, out of the darkness of all that tries to suppress that light, but ultimately cannot.

1 John 1:5 (ESV) This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

John 2:8 (ESV) At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.

Let All Things Rise - "Free and Boundless"
Posted by VCC on March 10, 2019 at 12:40 PM

This morning is the first Sunday of Lent. My pray is that most of you are engaging this season with some level of sincere intent starting with this past Ash Wednesday. If not, there is no time like the present to start. This is the time to press into God. If there were ever such a time, this is it. Not only as it relates to the times we live but what God is doing. We’re undertaking a five-part series that will take us to Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter. These hold the key to all God has done, is doing, and will do with the universe, His Creation, you, and all humanity. All throughout history, from the time of the beginning until now, we cannot *ignore that the goodness of God is free and boundless; much of which Lent and the Easter season is all about! Though we must recognize that for many this fact is unknown. You?
