  • 4th of July: The Bible, The Declaration of Independence, and UFOs'

    04/07/2021 Duração: 23min

    This is a live stream of the message for our Fourth of July Worship Service in Gorgas Park. What do the Bible, The Declaration, and UFO’s have in common ? How can you be part of re-weaving us together as one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all ? Turns out the first step you need to take is being honest about who you feel most alienated from in our society right now. And second, it turns out that both the scriptures and the Declaration of Independence show us how to come together again as a people. Today’s scriptures are: Old Testament: Deuteronomy 10:14-20 New Testament: Luke 4:16-21. We apologize for occasional drops in the signal.

  • Easter Morning Sermon - Why I believe in the Resurrection

    09/04/2021 Duração: 39min

    If the moment that Jesus rose from the dead is the most important moment of the Christian faith, the event upon which the entire movement is based, why do the Gospel writers only give us an empty tomb ? Why aren't there details and witnesses to the actual moment of resurrection ? Why do we only get people claiming to have encountered him AFTER the resurrection ? What if these very questions point to very good reasons for believing the resurrection actually happened on the first Easter ? Join us as we re-learn basic tools that help us understand not only the first Easter, but the political and social events we see all around us today. The scripture reading upon which this sermon is based is Matthew 27:62-Matthew 28:20

  • That Hideous Strength - Addendum: Hegemony = Counterhegemony = Evil

    15/03/2021 Duração: 22min

    George Orwell reviewed C.S. Lewis's book "That Hideous Strength" and loved everything about it except the fact that Lewis worked God into the equation :-). When you read the two books together, it seems Lewis may have had a strong influence on Orwell later writing "1984" : This message is an Addendum to the primary sermon on the book "That Hideous Strength" It explores how "That Hideous Strength" and Orwell's "1984" both prophetically predict actual techniques that have been and currently are being used by those interested in toppling Capitalist and free societies. We look at four quotes from 1984 that lead step by step to the overturning of true democracies. : You can see the entire series at https://levpres.org/the-c-s-lewis-spa...​ : Series Cover Image Credit: Sanford Schwartz “C.S.

  • Letting Jesus Wreck My Life #6 - How I can use Religion to avoid reality

    21/02/2021 Duração: 37min

    True faith in God is about the courage to be open to reality and hard truths. But when used inappropriately, it can actually help us avoid reality, including the reality of God. Many people have accepted a view of Christianity that included claims never found in the scriptures. And then when terrible times or difficult questions arise such people walk away from Jesus because their faith was built upon a foundation of sand. Today we look at 5 counterfeits to true faith. We hope this message will be helpful to both new Christians and to those who have been burned by the church. You can see the entire series at https://levpres.org/letting-jesus-wre...​

  • Letting Jesus Wreck My Life #4 - Psychology: Carl Jung meets Jesus

    31/01/2021 Duração: 40min

    A lot of us like the sound of "choosing reality over appearances." But when it involves taking a hard look at the worst parts of ourselves and comparing that to "together" persona we present to others, we tend to avoid this crucial hard work! Today we look at Carl Jung's idea of the shadow and how we hide our own worst flaws from ourselves by projecting them on to others. This idea echoes the deep teaching of the scriptures. If I am going to be a Christian, I need to be brutally honest about my own sin. Today we look at the relationship between Psychology and Faith, and explore the ways we can distort our thinking when we use Psychology the wrong way.

    24/01/2021 Duração: 39min

    Whether we are aware of it or not, all of us are operating under some philosophy of life - we have theories about how life actually works, what is worthwhile and what is not. Philosophy and Logic can be a great way to figure out what is true and a great way to access reality. But we can also use Philosophy the wrong way - to avoid reality and to shield ourselves from the presence of God. In this message with examine the relationship between Faith and Philosophy, and explore the ways we can distort our thinking when we use philosophy the wrong way.

  • Politics: Why we all are wrong but the United States is pretty great - and practical steps you and I can take to reduce the division in our country!

    10/01/2021 Duração: 01h04min

    This is not a sermon - this is a political essay. It is an attempt to explain why we are so divided, why the United States is worth saving , and what ordinary people like you and me can change in ourselves to reduce the polarization in our country. I tried to write in a way that would make sense to both progressives and conservatives which probably means I probably just annoyed everybody! Although I know my faith informs my positions, this audio article is meant to be a argument limited to the realm of human politics and I hope it will be useful to you whether you have any faith or none. I welcome your honest critique and value one on one conversations when possible.
