“The Unknown God”

Nearly 2,000 years ago a Christian missionary named Paul brought the gospel to one of the world’s greatest and most impressive cities, Athens. He shared his message in the synagogue and in the agora (marketplace). His message was radical … in fact a repudiation of the very things that the city was founded on… pagan gods like the goddess Athena, the patron goddess after whom the city was named and all the other gods whose temples dominated the landscape. In fact he challenged everything that they held sacred… all their institutions and rituals and practices.

At the End of Your Rope?

What do you do when you are ready to throw in the towel…when you have been facing trials for extended periods of time…when you’ve tried everything you know to try? You are hurting and you just wish the pain would stop. Where do you find strength?

The first thing you do is to hold on to your story – the story of what God has already done in your life, how He has shown up in powerful ways before. The first thing you do is that you remember! And you thank God for what He has done and what He will do. You pray. You turn to scripture.

Vision

On Sunday night the elders laid out the Singing Oaks Vision and handed it out. A good deal of work went into that vision… and hours of discussion. And there is a lot to it… more than anyone can do justice to in one meeting, or one sermon, or one blog. So, I’m not going to attempt it.

However, I want to make absolutely sure that our eyes are on the focal point of that vision… the opening statement:

“Singing Oaks is called to love God and to love others as Jesus loved. We believe that this decision to love matures in each of us as the power of the Holy Spirit works through us to make us Christ followers.”

Renew

Welcome to 2018! A new year begins, and with it the sense of a fresh start… beginning over. It is a time for resolve. I have been told that in the month of January over 133 million Americans will make New Year’s resolutions. Yet less than 10% of us will keep them.

Have I discouraged you? I hope not. After all, if resolutions were easy we wouldn’t have to make them in the first place! We would have achieved our aims long ago. No. When we make resolutions we gird ourselves up to go where we have never gone before. Resolutions are special because they take us to new heights. It is small wonder that resolutions often fail. If 133 million Americans were making their resolutions and were achieving 100% success, I would assume that we weren’t aiming very high. Wouldn’t you?

Post-Truth

It’s official. Truth is dead. Facts are passé. The Oxford English Dictionary selected “post-truth” as its international word of the year for 2016. The dictionary defines the term as “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”

Each year the OED chooses a word that captures the “ethos, mood or preoccupations of that particular year… and to have lasting potential as a word of cultural significance.” “Post-truth” was selected as the editors noted a 2,000 percent increase in its usage over 2015… in articles and social media on both sides of the pond. I believe the editors nailed it. I believe it is where we are as a culture. It is almost universal. And it is where we are likely to remain for a long time.
