Death, Grief, and God

Hello Church! 

I wanted to share a bit of faith with you, but I’m not sure I am up to speaking in front of the congregation quite yet.  So I hope you take a moment to read this and find something applicable for your life from it.

First – a huge thank you for being the church in prayer and support during our family’s difficult time.  Rhys thanks everyone who brought us brownies – he’s still working on them out of the freezer, 🙂 and I know Geoff was delighted to see so much delicious food brought in for us.  And your prayers of healing are immeasurably valuable.


Talk About Your Faith

Last Sunday we talked about the importance of being able to give an account of the hope that it is within us (…Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect 1 Peter 3:15.)  At Big Life C.C. we believe sharing Jesus is our high calling as Jesus followers.  Bringing together the clarity of our own personal faith story with respect and gentleness towards those who do not believe yet is a pathway forward for Christianity in our culture just as it was thousands of years ago when those words were written. 


What Is Spiritual Maturity & Why Strive For It?

The converted aim of every Christ-follower is “spiritual maturity.”  But what is it and how do we live it?

Hebrews 12:1-3New International Version (NIV)
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
