Christmas Lights: Children of the Light

Posted by tsaeureka in Christmas

Giant golden lampstands, undies in a bunch, backflips and juggling... You know that these things are signs of God's biggest party of the year!

It's time to embrace the joyous light and live it out, as is befitting of the heirs of God! Backflips are optional, but your listening ear is required.

Christmas Lights: Live in the Light

Posted by tsaeureka in Christmas

Do you ever feel pulled in two different directions? Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. Dual directions and dual ideas and dualistic ideas, like light and darkness, dominate scripture and life.

You probably need to listen to this episode twice.

The End

This is the end. Can there be anything to be thankful for in the end? Yes, but it does take some thought. Sorry.

 

When judgment comes, as it must, what will you be known for?

The Plumb Line

Posted by tsaeureka in Amos

Amos doesn't like God's plan.

God changes his plan.

Amos doesn't like God's new plan.

God changes his plan.

God shows Amos why.

Amos changes his objection.

What does God do or say that upsets you?

Seek God and Live

Posted by tsaeureka in Amos

Quick solution to every problem: Make your own god. Then you can do whatever you want and be praised for it!

Is this a good idea? Definitely NOT, as we learn from the next section of the message from Amos.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Posted by tsaeureka in Amos

Amos chapter 4, in which the prophet speaks harshly about our consumption of gummy bears. Okay, that may be a little indirect. He certainly had things to say to the people of his day as well. But gummy bears play into it, if you really HEAR what he is saying.

The Theology of Spider-Man

Posted by tsaeureka in Amos

My Spidey-sense tells me that people need to pay attention to what Amos is trying to convey in the third chapter of the book which bears his name. With great privilege comes great responsibility, after all! Check this week's message from TSA-Eureka and see whether you agree.

 

(Spider-Man image is copyrighted by Marvel Comics and probably didn't belong on the Creative Commons site I got it from. But it's awesome, and I'm sure Stan would approve. Give this a listen, then go watch the new Spider-Man movie.)

Forced to Judgment

Posted by tsaeureka in Amos

Amos delivers seven stinging prophecies. Do they matter to us today? Only if we or our nation are struggling with the same crimes against God they were back in the day. What are the odds of that, right? Surely we've learned and moved on! Unless we haven't.

Throwing Ashes

Posted by tsaeureka in Holiness, Amos

Mount Carmel is a garden in the desert. And it's doomed because it's part of a nation that can't treat people with dignity and justice. We begin our study of Amos with some history that makes his world sound a lot like ours. What does that mean for us?
