Every family has a family name which does two things: 1. it identifies us from other families, and 2. it identifies us as one family — who’s part of our family and who isn’t. In today’s passage (Luke 8:19-21) Jesus pushes against traditional family ties, not to disparage the family, but to enlarge it to include those who we wouldn’t normally consider family. Our collective family name is JESUS! In these few verses we unpack the earth-shattering, unfathomable, ground-breaking challenge of Jesus to expand our concept of family to include any and all who “hear the message and do it” (Luke 8:15).

Have you ever found yourself in prayer but by the end you don’t remember what God was saying to you? Have you ever found yourself reading something in the Bible but forgetting what you read a short time later? Or have you wondered why following Jesus hasn’t really changed your life? In this message, Pastor Marc Gagnon takes us through a parable in Luke 8 to unpack the meaning behind Jesus’ words, reminding us that if we’re committed to following Jesus, we have to be here for more than just the miracles.

Have you ever felt like God is unresponsive or not listening to your cries for help? In this section of Luke 7, Pastor Marc Gagnon takes us through Jesus’ unexpected response toward his cousin, and shows us that even when God doesn’t do what we want, we can still trust that he’s working.

What was the purpose of Jesus’ miracles? Everywhere he went he was displaying his power over disease, nature, and even death. But at the heart of these displays of power we see the heart of Jesus for people, particularly the vulnerable. In this message, Pastor Robyn Elliott takes us through a section of Luke 7 and shows us how Jesus again blows us away with his call to justice — social justice. How do we join him? Let’s grab a bier with Jesus!

Our world has always been polarized… social media has just made us far more aware of it. Things were even polarized in Jesus day. And Jesus has a unique way, not of yelling, name calling or throwing stuff… but of reaching across the divide with life. Join us today as we see an unexpected way forward in the midst of polarized times.

When you live “the Jesus way” it’s about a life where the inside matches the outside. It’s about a life where Jesus transforms you from the inside out. You don’t just “put on a bold face” to make the outside seem like all is well, when inside things are falling apart. Jesus uses four illustrations in Luke 6 to make his point.
