Jessica Kelley: Triumph by Testimony

Jessica Kelley is a good friend of ReKnew, and she preached this last weekend at Woodland Hills Church. Normally we only post clips of sermons, but we wanted to post the full sermon on this occasion. We feel like Jessica’s testimony about how her picture of God helped her through the death of her son Henry is so powerful, and God is doing something unique with this woman. Take some time and watch it when you get a chance. It will change your life.

Also, here’s a clip from Greg’s sermon two weeks ago. Omnipresence is a concept some are familiar with, but in the sermon clip, Greg Boyd discusses its meaning when trying to have a constant, on-going prayer life. Jesus calls us to abide in him, and we will bear much fruit. Jesus wants us to be always present with him just as God is omnipresent. However, this requires us to allow God into our lives. In the full sermon, Greg shows us how to be fully present with Jesus in every moment.

Full sermon here.

Theology and Imagination

The human brain is by far the most amazing, complex, and mysterious aspect of the physical world. Our brains continually interpret our world, and the way we interpret it is mostly determined by the way aspects of our world trigger our imagination. Our imagination encodes messages and creates feelings, and thus motivates behavior. And most…

Conflicting Pictures of God

In my ongoing reflections on the ReKnew Manifesto, I’ve spent the last two posts (here and here) arguing that nothing is more important in our life than our mental images of God. If so, then the all-important question is: what authority do we trust to tell us what God is like? To most evangelicals, the…
