"Welcome to Wonderland" Sermon Series • February 9 - 23

We all wonder. When we fix our eyes somewhere other than on God, wonder leads to wander. If you've wandered from the faith or are looking for the door, it's not because of Jesus. You may think Christianity requires mind-numbing, experience-denying faith, but what if that's not true?


February 9 // Center of the World // Hebrews 12:1-3

We wonder because our frames of reference don’t provide us with all of the answers. As your frame of reference changes or expands, some mysteries are solved. Some remain mysterious. So, what do you do with the big mysteries in life—the mysteries that won’t resolve no matter how much you explore them? What do you do with your unanswered questions?

February 16 // Show and Tell // John 14:6-7

We wonder because our frames of reference don’t provide us with all of the answers. Every version of religion works for children. But then life happens. We experience challenging circumstances that sow doubt in our childhood faith. Tragedy causes us to question if God is good and loving. Sin leads to guilt and shame. We wonder if God can really love us. Is there such a thing as a frame of reference that can accommodate a grown-up faith?

February 23 // Faith // John 1:4-5

If you wondered, then wandered, here’s something to ponder: there will always be things about faith that make you wonder, but God’s love for you shouldn’t be one of them. Two thousand years ago, light broke through the darkness in the town of Bethlehem. God communicated in no uncertain terms that he loves you.
