Rejoice! Paul uses words like joy to describe the depths of happiness he has found in identifying with Jesus as Messiah. This isn’t a happiness devoid of reality, where he invites the church at Philippi to wear Christian rose colored glasses. This sort of happiness embraces struggles, pain, suffering, and broken relationships. It holds the frustrations of life, names the circumstances we can’t control, and yet chooses a joy-filled contentment that can only be explained by having encountered the God of the universe in Jesus Christ. Journey with us through Paul’s powerful letter: Philippians.

The following few series were all part of our "pre-launch" phase of the church planting journey. We will likely return to some of these themes in the future, as they are relevant to the ongoing life of Pangea. These sermons served a specific purpose for a season of leadership development and differ some from the sort of talks that folks should expect after our official launch. (Shoot, some of the older talks happened in houses... you can even hear babies in the background!).
For many of us, faith creates tension. We aren't talking about relational tension (although that can be true as well) but the tensions that arise as we try to hold together faith and doubt. Experiencing these two simultaneous realities can become one of the heaviest burdens for followers of Jesus. However, ambiguity also creates spaces in our lives where authentic struggles, doubts, and questions help us move to new territory in our spiritual journeys. Sometimes having all the answers is less important than asking questions in the context of Christian community. This series will seek to explore several such tensions. Dates: Feb. 22 — Apr. 5 (The Season of Lent)
Revelation is perhaps the most read and misunderstood book in human history. It's been the justification for numerous wars, predictions, and various forms of fanaticism. Most people have heard it explained as if it were a book of secret codes or a crystal ball predicting the end of the world. But what if it is something completely different than what we've heard? What if this book is less about doom and gloom and more about gardens that bloom? What if the connections to the first century world of the author, John, to our world are more relevant today than we might think? Not as a predictor of future events, but as a counter-imperial script for living subversively in a world predicated on greed, violence, and corruption? Come and explore this incredible and misunderstood book with us as we unpack its wisdom that applies here, now, today! We were in and out of this series during our "pre-launch" core team phase, but set it aside as we clarified our vision for launching Pangea publicly. At a future date, we will return to Revelation in some sort of mini-series to reexamine its major themes and what it means to be a disciple in the midst of an empire.
NOTE: Since I've received several requests for the raw audio of the last talks in this series (we halted our podcast posts for a season), I'm going to make them available here. Revelation: talk 12, talk 13, talk 14 (Ryan Morey), talk 15.
This Advent series focused on: Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.
In our Threads series, we've looked at our [former] core values. These are the core threads that make up what it looks like to experience a full human existence. Not only so, but they are the values that help us to be "woven together into a tapestry of love." That phrase comes from our theme passage:
I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery! I’m telling you this because I don’t want anyone leading you off on some wild-goose chase, after other so-called mysteries... Colossians 2.2-4 (The Message)
