August 2nd, we cheered on the Everett AquaSox to victory. We are thanking God today for this time of fellowship and connection with friends, neighbors, and coworkers.
John, a member of Sound City, recently came forward and offered some insights with me on how we as a church can best love and serve people in times of disaster. The conversation was very helpful for me, so I thought it was a good opportunity to share it with our larger church community. Here’s the interview!
Easter is less than three weeks away. This holiday is my absolute favorite because we get to celebrate the most surprising, unexpected and world-changing event in human history — the resurrection of Jesus! Because Jesus is alive we can know that death is defeated, our sins are forgiven, and we have been given eternal life. Christians should party on Easter!
In addition to celebrating, we have an opportunity this time of the year.
In less than two weeks, Americans of all types will gather together to celebrate our nation’s unofficial holiday, the Super Bo…oh wait, I’m not allowed to use that phrase due to NFL rules. I guess I’ll just call it “the big game.” Like any good resident of Seattle, I’m bummed that our Hawks didn’t make it to the big game this year. At Sound City Bible Church, we’re still going to have all three of our normal service times (9a, 11a, and 5p) because I’d much rather teach through the book of Hebrews than be blinded with the bright and clashing uniforms of some ponies and kitty cats.
