Priests, Kings, and the Pursuit of the Good Life

By Eric Henderson - 1/7/2024

Each of us live pretty different lives than God’s people did 3000 years ago, but one similarity jumps off the page: we too look around, probably no more so than right now at the beginning of a new year, and say “life would be better if”. Every New year's resolution, or intention, or hopeful thought is about pursuing a better life. Whether we realize it or not, we are all in search of “the good life,” and the examples of the Israelites, Saul, and Samuel provide windows into how it is found: don't look over the fence, don't take matters into your own hands, and live the better story.

Fragments: Glimmers of Hope

Series Date: 1/7/2024 - 2/11/2024

Series Summary: “Fragments” are broken pieces of something that used to be whole. In this section of Scripture we find the slow breakdown of the Biblical kingdom of Israel, eventually leading to their exile in Babylon. However, a piece of the kingdom is left, reflecting the beauty of God’s covenant that he would not abandon nor forsake his people. Christ comes from this fragmented people.
