The Gift of Jesus

Isaiah 9:6-7 is part of a prophecy given by Isaiah, describing the coming Messiah. It was given to the Kingdom of Judah, in the midst of great political turmoil. In these verses Isaiah uses four names to describe this coming Messiah: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Remarkably, these names were…

2020 Reflection

My dad drew great maps. Sure, he was an artist but, the quality of his drawings aside, his maps were great because of the detail. All the necessary and helpful streets were labeled and important visual landmarks were sketched in too. He could have added much more detail because he knew all the street names…

Who Do You See?

The heart of the $50K Days of Christmas campaign isn’t simply to give gifts during the holidays to those in need. It’s also an opportunity for us to do what Jesus does.

The Coaching and Comfort of a Spiritual Mentor

I was standing in the middle of Sproul Plaza on the UC Berkeley campus talking to a guy named Doug Muraki from the Bible study I was in when, seemingly out of the blue, he challenged me to step up my game in Bible reading. More specifically, he said, “If you’re really serious about studying…

A Light in the Community

Imagine being a grade school student during this time of the Covid-19 pandemic. For the duration of your fall semester, you are told that you are only allowed to come to school on either Mondays and Thursdays or Tuesdays and Fridays, and every other Wednesday. This is done to keep class sizes down in order…

Fieldwork

In the past few years, we’ve noticed that our students struggle throughout Jr High with equating knowing about God with knowing God, and with having a relationship with Him. Students would woefully admit that following Jesus made sense when they were in their small groups, at summer camp or listening to a sermon, but as…
