After the church fast we talk about what had staying power and why change is hard. What grit is and how to develop it. We need:
Physical Nurture, Positive Environment, Autonomy, Goal larger than current capacity.
Repetition Reflection, Focus
Everyday ask, “ What is the gift God wants me to share with the world today?”
Mark 10, Luke 15
When we ask for our truest desires there is a risk. But ask.
We risk being wrong. We risk being shamed. We risk rejection. We risk disappointment.
Jesus is the sower who sows with stories… especially the stories of our own lives. Here we look at the parable of the sower and the four types of soil that are in each of us. We also look at this famous painting by Van Gogh and some of the misunderstandings around his life and work.
The land doesn't lie fallow forever. There comes a time to plow so new things can grow.
Let the land lie fallow, including the land in you. Lev 25
Judy, Joe, and Danielle share stories of transformation, healing, and open doors.
Vine39 is doing “40 Days of Fasting” starting tomorrow Wednesday June 18th. We will conclude with a feasting party on July 28th! July 28th we will have a “pass the mic” Sunday to hear stories about what God does in you during this season.
God will move in you as you take time to tune into God. What you are fasting from and what frequency is up to you. See a short video about the fast here https://youtu.be/27buoyawLdU
Everyone’s favorite topic- fasting! But seriously there is growing research around the benefits of fasting that are physical and spiritual.
Here is the link to the Vineyard movement’s time of fasting right now:
We conclude our Revelation series with how it all ends.
If you have questions about the book of Revelation in the bible email them into email@example.com so we can get to as many as possible this series.
The story of the gospel and it’s history around the world is about how it expands, includes, and elevates those formerly ignored and disregarded. We continue to talk about the diverse community in scripture with two key women in the gospels.
Diverse community doesn’t mean people who agree with me but look different. It means the inclusion of whoever our group is tempted to exclude because, as the gospels demonstrate, God will often choose to speak through whoever we are tempted to ignore or reject.
This is what we call a “conversermon” between Vine39 pastor Jim Zartman and pastoral team member Nancy O’Brian
On Sunday Jim and Nancy talked about two stories of women in scripture but wanted to cover so much more. This is a conversation we had on the topic in the studio in preperation for Sunday morning.
