Notes and Discussion Questions - Post-Materialism

Notes and Discussion Questions, "Post-Materialism" by Greg Sidders


Listen to "Post-Materialism" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 07-24-16

When it comes to money, which of these two statements best fits you?

a) "I worry about not having enough."

b) "I have more than enough, and I know how I'm going to spend it."

Actually, there is a third option. Jesus advocated a "none of the above" mindset about money in the Matthew 6:19-34, and those rare few who adopt it find peace and joy that eludes most people in our materialistic world. I hope you'll join us this Sunday as we allow the Sermon on the Mount to purify our perspective on money.

Notes and Discussion Questions - How Good Is Good Enough

Notes and Discussion Questions, "How Good Is Good Enough" by Greg Sidders

How Good Is Good Enough

Listen to "How Good Is Good Enough" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 07-10-16

The more sermons you hear, the harder it is to discern where God's word stops and human interpretation begins.

But the Sermon on the Mount was different. In it, Jesus stripped layers of human commentary off of God's word to restore it to its original condition. By doing so, he showed us exactly what it takes to get to heaven, and what it looks to live like someone who is headed there.

I hope that by listening to this Sunday's sermon your soul will be detoxified as you hear the unaltered voice of Jesus.

The Kind of People Who Change the World

Listen to "The Kind of People Who Change the World" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 07-03-16

What kind of people please God? What kind of people have the brightest future to look forward to? What kind of people change the world?

The eightfold answer to those questions is found in the famous words with which Jesus began the Sermon on the Mount.  They're called the Beatitudes, and we study them together this Sunday at White Pine.
