26:30
November 23, 2021
Episode 56 > A Cause Worth Serving
Today, Kristie takes a look into the story of Nehemiah, rebuilding, and the spiritual matter of faithful giving. Some of us feel like the wider Christian church feels broken – having lost its way in rejecting its own people and placing biblical literalism above the more fundamental lesson of love. It’s in need of rebuilding, just as Jerusalem needed to rebuild its temple. And like Nehemiah, we’ve been called to help rebuild God’s church.
20:44
November 16, 2021

24:55
October 26, 2021
Episode 52 > Stirring the Soul > Mourning
Though the desert religions today are religions of scarcity, a look at the Old Testament story shows that God has always had a generous heart. In this podcast, we’ll look at the story of Jonah, talk about the reality that humans want to belong more than they want to know the truth, and how difficult it is to mourn loss.
24:24
October 19, 2021

22:06
October 12, 2021
Episode 49 > Doubt

27:07
September 28, 2021

23:30
September 14, 2021
Episode 46 > Left Hand's Directions > Upward
In this week's sermon, we conclude our sermon series entitled. Left Hand's Directions with a look UPWARD, at how we celebrate all we have learned along our journey to this point and all we have to look forward to as a community.
26:09
August 31, 2021
Episode 45 > Left Hand's Directions > Serving Outward
Where are we called, and to what purpose?  This week, Paula talks about what kind of a person we need to be to recognize and accept our call when it comes.
25:35
August 24, 2021
Episode 44 > Left Hand's Directions > Moving Withward
In this sermon, Paula talks about how our souls can embrace enough vulnerability to be able to live authentically with others. She’ll talk about how loving ourselves, accepting the world as it is, and accepting that part of life is lived in the swamplands, can help us become whole.
25:34
August 17, 2021
Episode 43 < Left Hand's Directions < Moving Inward
In this week’s sermon, John talks about Left Hand being the kind of church community where we’re willing to deal with the painful stuff, and where we believe that salvation and reconciliation is HOLISTIC.  John also discusses his dislike of the enneagram, and…..body hair?
25:40
August 10, 2021
Episode 42 < Left Hand's Directions < Looking Forward
In this week's sermon, co-pastor Kristie Sykes continues our sermon series on the direction of our church and how community, journey, and discovery of passion all play a part in looking forward.
23:02
August 03, 2021
Episode 41 < Left Hand's Directions < Looking Backwards
This week, Paula will kick off our new sermon series on Directions.  Sometimes the best way to move forward is to look backwards.  This week we’ll look back at the history of the church, including our own congregation, Left Hand Church, as we begin to discern where we are going from here.
24:30
July 27, 2021
Episode 40 > A Walk Through Ephesians>Ephesians 6> Obedience versus Faithful Questioning
In this week's episode, Paula continues taking a look at Paul's letter to the church at Ephesus, and the sixth chapter is every bit as explosive as the fifth chapter.  Both have done great damage to the church and in culture at large.  John dealt wonderfully with the fifth chapter last week, but we'll take a look at a foundational understanding that'll help us comprehend both the fifth and sixth chapters.
22:59
July 20, 2021
Episode 39 > A Walk Through Ephesians>Ephesians 5> Pushing Boundaries: The Submission of Women in the Family and the Church
"Wives, submit to your husbands" may be the most abused and misused passage in the Bible.  In this week's sermon, John will look at this passage from several perspectives and ask a hard question --- when, if ever, should we disobey scripture?
27:22
July 13, 2021
Episode 38 - Independence Day
In this week's episode, Paula talks about misconceptions and responsibilities of being a Christian and a responsible citizen.

July 06, 2021
Episode 37 – A Walk Through Ephesians: It’s A New World (Ephesians 3&4)
This week's sermon by co-pastor Paula Williams continues our sermon series entitled A Walk Through Ephesians, with a look at Ephesians Chapters 3 & 4. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be looking at what Paul had to say to the church at Ephesus about how to be human together. This week we examine how to live practically as followers of Jesus, including being committed to the truth, dealing with our anger appropriately, forgiving well, and empowering others.
26:21
June 29, 2021
Episode 36>A Walk Through Ephesians: A Walk Through Ephesians: Beyonce, Artemis, and Wonders of the World (Ephesians 2)
This week's sermon by co-pastor John Gaddis continues our sermon series entitled A Walk Through Ephesians, with a look at Ephesians 2. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be looking at what Paul had to say to the church at Ephesus about how to be human together. This week we examine that Paul is writing to the Ephesians in Ephesus - which happens to be the home to the largest temple in the known world -- and flips everything on its head by talking about how God is building a temple out of PEOPLE with Jesus as the cornerstone of the temple.
24:15
June 22, 2021
Episode 35>A Walk Through Ephesians: A Heart Journey (Ephesians 1)
This week's sermon by co-pastor Kristie Sykes kicks off our new sermon series entitled A Walk Through Ephesians, with a look at Ephesians 1. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be looking at what Paul had to say to the church at Ephesus about how to be human together. This week we focus on the idea that if you truly know that God loves you as you are, maybe you’ll stop focusing on what you do wrong, and spend more time thinking about what you do right, and how that can help the church and the world become a better place.Description: This week's sermon by co-pastor Kristie Sykes kicks off our new sermon series entitled A Walk Through Ephesians, with a look at Ephesians 1.

21:08
June 15, 2021
Episode 34>Why The Church, Part 2
Description: In today's sermon our co-pastor Paula Williams looks at how the Spirit started something in Jerusalem: the Church, and what Jesus said it should be. The church is the place where we do good deeds to leave the world a better place than we found it.  It is a place we work out together the meaning of life.  And it is the place we learn how to be human together.
30:25
June 08, 2021
Episode 15>Special Service>What Left Hand Means To Me
In today's message, our co-pastor Paula Williams hosts several church members speaking on what our church has meant in their lives.

Episode 32>The Blazing Breath of Heaven: A Celebration of Pentecost
In today's sermon our co-pastor Nicole Vickey celebrates and examines Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles in a great wind with tongues of fire. Pentecost is the kept promise of Jesus, as he ascended to Heaven, that he would send the Holy Spirit to live with us and guide us.
22:58
May 25, 2021
Episode 31>Parables Unlocked: The Prodigal Son
In today's sermon we conclude our Unlocking Parables sermon series. Our co-pastor Paula Williams reexamines the parable of the prodigal son. The sermon focuses on the father’s grace, even though neither son acted with much love toward the father.
19:36
May 18, 2021
Episode 30>Parables Unlocked: Everything is Spiritual
In today's sermon, John Gaddis looks at how our upbringing can impact the way we view the physical world and the spiritual world, and the work that we're called to do to bring those worlds together.
29:28
May 12, 2021
Episode 29>Parables Unlocked: Healing on the Other Side
In this week's sermon, Paula Williams teaches us that the kingdom of God is a dragnet that pulls up everything, our strengths and weakness, hopes and fears, joys and sorrows.  Jesus is the one who helps us sort through the junk and heal the open wounds.
22:13
May 04, 2021
Episode 28>Parables Unlocked: Mark Rothko, Green Thumbs and the Kingdom of God
In today's sermon, John will talk about how the Kingdom of God is, first and foremost, a reality to be experienced.  It's not a conquering hero defeating his enemies. It's more subversive than that --- it's slowing down and listening with new ears, or seeing with new eyes.
25:17
April 27, 2021
Episode 27>Parables Unlocked: You're Bigger Than You Know - The Mini-Parables
In today's sermon, our co-pastor Paula Williams continues our new sermon series, Unlocking Parables.
25:59

Episode 26>Parables Unlocked: The Parable of the Talents
This week's sermon is the first sermon in our new sermon series, Unlocking Parables.  In today's sermon, our co-pastor John Gaddis turns the parable of talents on its head and believes that the true message of the parable is to participate in the absurd, over-the-top abundant grace of Jesus.
28:01
April 13, 2021
Episode 25: Easter Sunday
This episode features our Easter Sunday sermon by our co-pastors Paula Williams and John Gaddis. In this special sermon, we look at this past year and the the darkness of pandemic we have each experienced. We ask ourselves: Does death have the last word? Even in the depth of our losses, death is not the end of the story. Resurrection, though, says the last word hasn’t been spoken.
30:35
April 06, 2021
Episode 24>It's all about the Palms & the Passion
This episode features a Palm Sunday sermon by our co-pastor Kristie Sykes entitled "It's all about the Palms & the Passion". In this sermon, we explore that idea that there is no quick or easy resolution to the palms and the passion. There is only the tension of the day. It’s a difficult place to be. The palms and the passion together are the reality of our world, the reality of our lives.
22:29
March 30, 2021
Episode 23>It Starts in the Human Heart
God says “love your neighbor.” Over and again, we choose loving power instead.  Why?  Well, the line between good and evil runs straight through the center of the human heart.  Because of that unfortunate reality, we need continuing reminders that power corrupts, and love wins.
29:15
March 23, 2021
Episode 22>EXODUS AND EXILE>Songs with Harps but without Joy
John concludes our Exodus and Exile sermon series by focusing on the universalities of the Babylonian Exile, and the pain of singing without joy.
24:43
March 16, 2021
Episode 21>EXODUS AND EXILE>The Lamb of God
In today's message, we continue our sermon series on Exodus & Exile with a sermon from our co-pastor, Paula Williams.
24:03
March 09, 2021
Episode 21>EXODUS AND EXILE>If That’s Wisdom, I’m Not Sure I Want to See Folly: Solomon & the Kingdom of Israel
As humans in groups, our tendency is to take care of our own and create enemies of everyone else.  God instructed Israel to love its neighbors.  Israel had a hard time taking in that message.  Jesus brought it home even more.  But still today, we have a hard time loving God, loving our neighbors, and loving ourselves.  Yet, it is the hope of our species.
24:28
March 02, 2021
Episode 20>EXODUS AND EXILE: Camels and Crying Out
In today's sermon, we start to work through one of the primary narrative driving scripture: the theme of Exodus that runs throughout human history.  Our co-pasor, John Gaddis, will discuss how crying out inaugurates history, and how Jesus is bringing about a New Exodus.
33:49
February 23, 2021
Episode 19>Giving Up What Keeps You From Love: A Left Hand Look At Lent
In today's message, we follow up on a lesson from our previous sermon series: the importance of applying wisdom to reimagine ancient traditions for today's world. Our co-pastor, Nicole Vickey, leads us in a look at the tradition of Lent, and how we might adapt this tradition to make it a more meaningful season for our community.
24:43
February 16, 2021
Episode 18>How Does The Bible Actually Work: The New Testament Letters
In today's message, we conclude our sermon series on How The Bible Actually Works with a look at the letters of the New Testament. Twenty-three of 27 books in the New Testament are letters, written to other people in other times.  Reading them is like reading someone else’s mail - we don’t really understand exactly what was going on.  And yes, those letters also need to be reinterpreted over time and matched to our understanding at the time. The Bible is a history and book of wisdom, not a rulebook to stay out of hell or an encyclopedia of facts.
23:54
February 09, 2021
Episode 17>How Does The Bible Actually Work: Applying Wisdom To Scripture
In today's message, our co-pastor John Gaddis continues our sermon series entitled How Does The Bible Actually Work. He talks about how the process of adapting the past and reimaging God is something that we actually see happening in the Bible itself. This sacred responsibility -- to imagine God in light of the present moment, in light of our faith in Jesus as God's Messiah -- now falls to the followers of Jesus today.
31:53
February 02, 2021
Episode 16>How Does The Bible Actually Work: Views of God
In today's message, our co-pastor Paula Williams continues our sermon series entitled How Does The Bible Actially Work. Her sermon looks at the Bible not just as a history of how Israel and the followers of Jesus understood their relationship with God, and a book of wisdom - but also as a history of how the followers of God, throughout history, defined their understanding of the very nature of God - right down to and including our attempts to do the same today.
25:35
January 26, 2021
Episode 15>Special Service>What Left Hand Means To Me
In today's message, our co-pastor Paula Williams hosts several church members speaking on what our church has meant in their lives.
32:02
January 19, 2021
Episode 14>How Does The Bible Actually Work>The Bible As History & Wisdom
In today's message, our co-pastor Paula Williams shares the second sermon in a new series called "How Does The Bible Actually Work" with a sermon entitled "The Bible As History & Wisdom". Is the Bible an encyclopedia of facts? Is it a rulebook? It is neither. It is a history of how the people of Israel understood their relationship with God and a history of how the followers of Jesus understood their relationship with God. It is a book of history and wisdom and as such, is a great source for us today.
22:13
January 12, 2021

December 29, 2020
Episode 11 > 4th Advent: God With Us
So, why did Jesus come to earth?  One of the main reasons was to show all of us that the human body is good - all of it - not a message we’ve heard enough from the church.  In this message, our co-pastor Paula Williams talks about why the human body is good.
23:11
December 22, 2020
Episode 10 > 3rd Advent: When Hope Comes Calling, You Answer Yes!
In today's message, our co-pastor Paula Williams shares a sermon about hope. Hope comes from the outside, while perseverance and persistence come from within. In between the two lies the most important decision of all - learning to say yes to hope.
26:36

Episode 9 > 2nd Advent: Finding Peace On Hard Journeys
