Songs from Andrew and Bobi Bergh (3/21/20)

A note from Andrew and Bobi: “Here are a couple of songs that we recorded. The songs are Beautiful by Phil Wickham and No Longer Slaves by Bethel. Our thoughts for these songs is that even during a time such as this, we have a lot of opportunity to be reminded of God’s goodness through the beauty of nature and remembering that although there is mass hysteria in our world, we are not slaves to that fear. God is ultimately in control of everything and we are loved by him.”

The Woman at the Well (8/9/20)

Hello friends. We are taking a couple Sundays to hear from other important voices. This sermon is from Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil. Brenda is Associate Professor of Reconciliation Studies at Seattle Pacific University, and the Associate Pastor of Preaching and Reconciliation at Quest Church in Seattle. Brenda is an important voice to keep listening to in this time of racial tension, and what she has to say about Jesus in this sermon is very important!

Sabbath (8/16/20)

This is our second Sunday to listen to important voices of others. What A.J. Swoboda has to say about Sabbath is crucial, insightful, and will cause you to chuckle.

A.J. is a fascinating person, a graduate of George Fox Seminary and a PhD from the University of Birmingham (UK). His research was on the never ending relationship between the Holy Spirit and ecology (the environment).

He’s local. He makes his home in Eugene, OR. He has served as pastor and leader at numerous churches in Oregon, and as the campus pastor of the University of Oregon. He serves(ed) as professor at Bushnell University, Fuller Seminary, Northwest Christian University, Kilns College, and George Fox Seminary. He’s the author of numerous books. Enjoy!
