My Little Spiritual Gifts

Posted by tsaeureka in Spiritual Gifts

I'm sure we are all aware of the powerful modern parable presented by episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Don't worry - As Roger explained the four spiritual gifts described in this particular message, he had lots of input from the children in the congregation as they kept him on track and accurate where the cartoon horses were concerned.

I know that sounds odd, but it's still worth hearing!

The Bloodthirsty Hate the Blameless

Posted by tsaeureka in Genesis, Sermon, Holiness, Misconceptions

In a week filled with death and anger, perhaps it helps to know that God is present in even the most messed up circumstances.

Starting from one of the best known and least understood stories of the Bible, wandering through 3,500 years of unanswered questions, and ending up in the center of current affairs with some difficult conclusions, this is not the message you want to skip. Unless you're planning to kill someone.

Unfolded Giving, Moving Mountains

Posted by tsaeureka in Spiritual Gifts

Some people have the gift of giving. Some have the gift of faith. Some, both. But are these gifts that only a few have or are they some kind of spiritual fruit that all believers should manifest? Or is there more going on here than you might first imagine?

This message from TSA-Eureka isn't the one you want to miss!

Don’t be a Non-Prophet Ministry

Posted by tsaeureka in Spiritual Gifts

The spiritual gift of prophecy: Does it still exist? Or is it a thing of the past, plucked away from the church once the canon of scripture was settled? When you listen to this message from TSA-Eureka, you'll be able to answer that question and start asking yourself another: Which spiritual gifts have been given to me?

Green Eggs and Spiritual Gifts

Posted by tsaeureka in Spiritual Gifts

I will not use my gifts for others; not for sisters or for brothers.

I won’t do God’s special plan; I’ll take my gifts out on the lam!

 

Sure, that's us before we use our gifts. But then, once we've experienced them in action...

 

Oh, yes, dear LORD, now I can see,
You must send lots more folks to me!
So that I can serve them all with glee,
Using my gift of hospitality!

 

What do you mean, I rhyme like a Vogon? This is serious stuff here!

 

This week's message from TSA-Eureka - It's worth a listen!

Unwrapping Spiritual Gifts

Posted by tsaeureka in Spiritual Gifts, The Church

You know how you're double-jointed and can make it looklike your elbow bends the wrong way? That's not a Spiritual Gift. Neither is the way your cousin sings, even if ever bit of creation will stop to listen when she does. Neither is patience. Sorry. What ARE Spiritual Gifts? I guess you'd better listen to this week's message from TSA-Eureka to find out.
