The Sufficiency of Grace

The Rev. Patrick Schlabs | 2 Corinthians 12:1-10

The self-sufficient individual is the great American archetype, even a founding principle, yet our experience tends to contradict this aspiration, and we meet burnout and failure. As we read Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians, we find a similar story of credentials and experience meeting pain and disappointment. What do we make of this suffering? What about apparent prosperity? Join Patrick Schlabs as he unpacks this text and finds the beautiful sufficiency of Christ alone.

Independence from Dependence

The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson | Deuteronomy 15:7-11

Generosity is not a natural trait, particularly in the rat-race drive of America, yet the story of Scripture is one of grace, unmerited generosity from God towards humanity. Deuteronomy gives an evocative and challenging picture of this generosity as God commands the people of Israel. Yet what does this mean for us today? How is generosity acted out in our own lives? Join Peet Dickinson as he explores this challenging command and sees our generosity stemming from our gracious God.
