    Part Three: “Building God’s House” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    Series: The House
    Everybody wants to be a builder, but who wants to be the building material? Peter reminds us that God is building a “temple”, a dwelling place for himself that displays his glory to the world. But it’s not a physical structure. Jesus is the foundation, and we are the building blocks for the temple. But we are also the “priests” of God’s House, the ones who offer worship and live in a way that makes God famous to the world around us. What a privilege to be God’s big project!

    Fourth Week of Advent: “A Child of God” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    We all love the re-telling of Jesus’ birth, the baby born to Mary, laid in a manger and adored by shepherds, angels and the Magi. But they weren’t simply worshiping a baby who would become the Savior – they worshiped the baby who is Jesus, the Son of God, the Word made flesh, the Source and Sustainer of all Creation. Only faith in the Son of God can make you and me a child of God.

    First Week of Advent: “Don’t Be Afraid” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    Do you have a reason to be joyful? When an angel appeared to the chilly shepherds in the field to announce the birth of Jesus, they were terrified, with no reason for joy. But they were immediately given Good News, a message of great joy for all people. God’s message of joy chases our fear away, when we act on the Good News.

    King Jehoshaphat: “Taking Shortcuts”; The Wisdom of Kings” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    Jehoshaphat was a good king, all the way through. But he wasn’t perfect, and got himself in trouble by using ungodly partnerships to shortcut his way to what God already had in store for him. Jehoshaphat reminds us to seek God in God’s way to receive God’s blessing.

    King Rehoboam: “Paying the Price of Worship”; The Wisdom of Kings – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    The Kingdom of Israel divided under Solomon’s son, Rehoboam, into the northern and southern kingdoms. But Solomon had just finished building the temple! Would the citizens of the north continue to worship at the temple in Jerusalem? Would that even be possible? Would it be okay to worship idols closer to home instead?
