The Strength to Overcome
Skip Bowersox on Nehemiah 8. Here is what Skip said before Sunday,  "Church on the Rockers, When I think about my own funeral, I imagine it would go something like this: I'd like to be cremated and have my ashes kept in one of my five-gallon buckets. As attendees walk through the door, everyone gets a Bowersox Tile t-shirt. My wife has already told me that she will likely not attend.  I believe this is because she will be too overcome with grief, though I suspect the real reason is this will be her first opportunity to clear the kitchen counter of all my paperwork and whatnot. After the service, we'll all meet at the homestead where Alan and Linda will provide burgers, and Pam and Dwayne will provide Cocoa Pebbles. We'll gather around the campfire as Robert Tonner leads us in a sing-along of Paul Overstreet’s greatest hits. The only piece I don't have figured out is who will speak. I would like Aaron Weisser to share, but he will likely be too choked up (you know how he gets). Scott Fraley could share some funny stories about selling encyclopedias. That really has nothing to do with me, but it’s always fun to hear. We could just do an open mic as long as you guys promise not to let my brother-in-law, Josiah Fisher, have a turn. Unfortunately, our best option for speaker at my funeral would be the dead guy in the bucket. I know exactly what passage I would share. I know exactly what message I would give. If I were preaching at my own funeral, I would turn to the passage that has most clearly defined the gospel in my own experience.  Ironically enough, this very gospel passage is found in the Old Testament. Since I can't preach it at my own funeral, I decided to beat the rush and preach on Nehemiah 8 this Sunday. No need to bring flowers. Skip"

Can We All Get Along?
Bill Wilkinson on Reconciliation. Here is what he said before Sunday: “I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we...can we all get along?” Many of you may remember those words of Rodney King during the Los Angeles riots of 1992.  This lasted six days, resulted in 63 deaths, over 2300 injured, and required the US Army and Marine Corps to restore order. The people were rioting because of the acquittal of the police officers that had severely beaten Rodney King. America saw that beating on video tape. What’s amazing is that in the midst of the rioting here was Rodney, the man who had been beaten, on national TV pleading for people to get along, to essentially forgive what had been done to him.  Let’s take a look at God's view of “getting along” this week as we open His word. His word may shed some light on how we can better “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39, Gal 5:14).  See you on Sunday, and let’s see if we can all get along on the car ride to church.

Good Job Job
Job |3| Randy Weisser "Job and Genesis tie for being my favorite book of the Bible. In terms of the number of notes scribbled in the margins of my Bible, Job comes out ahead (using that metric). Job is such a unique book among all the other Bible books. We don’t know who Job is, we don’t know where he comes from, and we don’t even know who wrote the story. It begins with this powerful, explosive left hook to the jaw out of nowhere which sends Job, and us, reeling. Then we go along for the agonizing, wrenching journey as Job spends 40 chapters trying to figure out what just happened. We then discover that, all along that journey, there are gems to be discovered that help us understand who God is and how much he values His relationship with us. Join us this Sunday for the last in this three part series from the Book of Job. Randy Weisser"

Then I Thought
Job |2| Then I Thought - Aaron Weisser Key Verse: Job 29:18-20 "Have you ever chosen to do something really difficult for someone else and then, while doing that difficult thing, consoled yourself by thinking about how much they were going to owe you? Then later you find yourself angry when you realize the person doesn’t fully appreciate the degree of his or her indebtedness? So, you try to find ways to draw attention to your sacrifice so you can fully enjoy the benefits of their obligation to you? Yeah, me neither. I would never be so immature…. This Sunday we will continue in the study of Job. We are going to look at the fundamental error and point of confusion in Job’s thinking. It has to do with Job being a great guy and God not fully comprehending how much blessing Job deserved as a result. I want you to think about this question leading up to Sunday: "When you are good, what does your goodness purchase for you?" Looking forward to our time together, Aaron"

Your Answers Are No Longer Helpful
Job week 1 of 3 with Luke Epperson. Key Verse: Job 13:15-16 Here is what Luke shared with us before Sunday: "Pain hurts. It makes us wince, cringe, cuss, cry, hide, and want to avoid those situations at any cost. But pain can often be managed, and pain is often temporary. Suffering, however, shakes us at a far deeper level. It slams us beyond the limits of who we are and what we love. Pain hurts us. Suffering changes us. And there, in the middle of our personal pain, grief, and chaos, God reigns with justice and goodness. And that brings up all sorts of questions that defy the answers we have loved so dearly. This Sunday we will begin looking through the book of Job, the story of unthinkable, personal horror for the man recognized by God as the most righteous man alive. Job lives his suffering in front of us, asking questions you’re not supposed to ask, saying the things you’re not supposed to say, and moving through the limits of his identity in a way that led, finally, to peace. As we explore Job over the coming three weeks, we will look at the Philosophy of Suffering, the Theology of Suffering, and this week, the Humanity of Suffering. See you soon, Luke Epperson" Takeaways:  Suffering deconstructs us.  God reconstructs Job with a broader understanding of God and self.
