Last week we saw the true miracle of God wasn’t Jonah escaping a whale but encountering the miraculous mercy of God. This week we’ll look at another miracle—a whole city repents! How could that happen? Do we have faith for such a thing in our city? What does it take for a city to repent?

Was does it take to really get through a trial? The right view of God, our theology? Saying the right things to God, prayer? Or something else? Jonah shows us it takes more than good theology and prayers to relate well to God in the ups and downs of life.

With the onslaught of hurricanes, Jonah is a timely book for us to learn from. Does God send the storm or does it just happen? What was God doing with Jonah in his trials? How should we respond to God in the trials of life?

“This isn’t right!” We’ve all thought this at one time or another. With the development of mass and social media the pangs and ripples of life in a broken world are felt by all. Touched by this brokenness—hate, violence, self-interest, greed, sin, death, evil—one cannot help but hope for something better…something pure…something otherworldly. Join us this Sunday as we look at what it means to be a colony of heaven and to live with anticipation of Christ’s return. Feel free to spend some time meditating on Philippians 3:17-4:1.

Everybody is living for something. Our passion for education, family, entrepreneurship, fitness, and fun are all fueled by our ambition to attain the life we want. It is possible to be ambitious for the wrong things, and for all the wrong reasons. We see this in the first part of Philippians 3 when Paul says he considers all his achievements “as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ.” But then a few verses later, Paul says he is “straining forward” and “pressing on toward the goal.” He is full of drive and focus. So what is the place of ambition in the life of a Christian? In these verses, Paul is tapping into the innate sense of purpose and longing in each of us. It’s not less ambition that we need, but more. The real issue is where it is aimed. Join us this Sunday to explore what Paul has to say about spiritual ambition as we continue our study of Philippians.

We live in the fast-paced, high-performing city of Austin. Whether we're working in tech, involved with politics, engaged in ministry, or striving to raise (fast-paced, high-performing!) children, we're constantly striving to keep up and maintain an impressive list of achievements. Often times, we oscillate between seasons of success and seasons of failure, and our emotional, physical, and spiritual lives follow suit. How can the Apostle Paul, who at one time was a cultural elite in his day, make a statement that all of his life's greatest achievements were "counted as loss compared to knowing Christ?" Though we often give lip service to this type of idea, if we're honest, we seldom truly live this way. Instead, our hearts cling to our achievements, merits, and pedigree. Is it possible to truly "count all things as loss" compared to knowing God? If so, does it even make sense to live in that way in the city? Join us this Sunday to explore what Paul has to say as we continue our study of Philippians

If you're like most people, you probably have this idea in your head for how your life is supposed to go. We all want to succeed in one way or another. But what happens when you realize that you can't live up to your own ideals? Join us on Sunday as we continue our study in Philippians where we will delve into this paradox of why we have such a hard time living up to standards given to us by God. We may even find an answer for our struggles as well.

Where can true hope and joy be found? Many things promise hope and joy: possessions, relationships, experiences. But what happens when that’s still not enough? This weekend we are continuing our study through the book of Philippians by looking under the hood of the Apostle Paul, who, despite having everything taken from him, remained filled with hope, joy, and faith. So, what’s his secret? No matter whether you are in a season of thriving or you are running on empty, we invite you to join us this Sunday and find out.

Who we are, determines what we do. In the midst of a culture vying for significance and identity, St. Paul gives us an indication of who we truly are in the opening lines of his letter to the Philippians. Join us on Sunday as we begin Philippians and consider how our most foundational identity leads to a different way of living in the world.

Many say we live in a disenchanted world. Gone are the days of communing with the gods. But why do we still yearn for more? What could an enchanted everyday life look like? We can commune with God by living blamelessly, doing what’s right, and telling ourselves the

In his closing prayer, Jesus talks about three things every single person longs for—unity, glory, and love. Unity, how do I connect meaningfully with other people? Glory, is there something truly great worth living for? Love, can I be known and accepted in fully?

What does it take to change a city? Jesus started his ministry, not with a stellar individual but a less than stellar community, a fledgling band of followers. He prays that God would send, keep, and sanctify communities for the sake of the world.
