Morning Worship, 11/18/25: "Ending Is Beginning"

           The Bible is filled with apocalyptic, or end-times, literature.  Mark 13 is a type of apocalyptic literature, as are some of the prophets of the Old Testament and Revelation, for example.  Each of these stories teaches us about the end of the world.  Over the centuries, people have come to believe they provide a step-by-step blueprint for how the end will come.  They see wars and natural disasters and believe they are signs for the end.  It’s no wonder 22% of us think the world is coming to an end! 
            The problem is that apocalyptic literature, like Mark 13, wasn’t written as a blueprint for the end.  It was supposed to be a roadmap to the future.

Morning Worship, 11/4/12: "Anonymous Saints"

Have you ever loved someone so much you wish they could come back from the dead?  While that may be possible in a children’s movie or for the Son of God, we know it is not possible for us.  As much as we may want to, we cannot bring back the dead.  That’s not the way it works.  In fact, and this is the good news, it’s just the opposite.  They bring us forward!
