This fifth Sunday in our Lenten journey, we explore John's gospel and the story of Lazarus. How did Jesus showcase His full Godliness and full humanity at that moment? And how much can we glean from John 11:35, the shortest passage in scripture, that says, simply, "Jesus Wept?" We can draw great comfort from Christ here. Listen and learn why!
As we worship via live-stream while public worship and gatherings are suspended due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), we turn our attention to Psalm 23, perhaps one of the most well-known passages of Scripture in Christianity. We explore how the Lord is and always remains our shepherd and caregiver. (Audio pulled from live-stream video, pardon sound quality and echo). REMINDER: public in-person worship is suspended across Tarrant County, TX, until further notice. We encourage you to follow our podcast and all updates on stbarnabas.us to keep up with worship patterns as is possible.
When you're tempted by sin, know this: Jesus was tempted, too! Learn how to respond to temptation by growing in holiness, safeguarding yourself against sin and the Devil. That's what Lent is all about: self-denial in the service of deepening and strengthening your relationship with God.
Ash Wednesday is one of those Church holidays the secular world doesn't seem to want to co-opt. Why do Christians face their own mortality on this day? What does it have to do with repentance and self-examination? Let's explore together! "Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return." (Genesis 3:19)
The Rev. Greg McBrayer teaches on the lessons we should learn from Christ's Transfiguration, and what it means for us, as Christians, and how we should live out those lessons in life and in the workplace.
