This is our new series, "Highlights From The Book Of Judges." You can watch this series here, or on our YouTube channel, or in person with us on Sundays at 10:00AM In the Westminster Mall.
This is our growing playlist of Hot Button Church Topics. Community members ask us to research, study, and present in context. We've covered topics like women's reproductive rights, the story of Sodom and Gomorra, the rapture, the mark of the beast, kookie Christians, religious freedom, Exvangelicals, word of faith doctrine, praying away the gay, and several more. Watch or listen to the entire playlist here or on YouTube.
This is our current Bible book study. "The Book Of Romans" is rich and full of complexities that are generally overlooked by many mainstream career church pastors. This fact has catapulted this letter to the Roman church to the top of the list of misused books of the Bible. Many verses that are often taken out of context and fashioned into a weapon against other people come from the book of Romans. When presented in context, the letter to the Roman Church shows us how the early church communities worked through the challenges of divisive doctrines, fractured congregations, and difficult relationships. This letter was written to bring unity and remind each of us that we are all one in Christ.
Join with us and learn what the book of Daniel actually says and teaches us when we look at it and work through it in it's proper context. We hope you find this book study healing and helpful.
Context, context, context! When you walk through the Book of Revelation in context you will come to realize that there is nothing to fear and that God is for you and not against you. We hope you are encouraged by and enjoy this deep dive into the Book of Revelation.
Context always matters. When we examine the books and stories in the Bible, the linguistics, the historical background, the cultural context, the social order all play a part in how the author tells their story. It gives us a perspective we can't obtain any other way. We hope this study through Haggai the Prophet gives you a better view of how we all can move forward from the real life catastrophes we've experienced during the global pandemic of COVID 19 and it's mutated variants.
1st Thessalonians is a challenging letter to read when it's presented out of context because of the fear it produces. A closer look at the 1st Thessalonians letter in it's proper context becomes a wealth of knowledge and inspiration for working through challenging times both individually and as a community of Jesus' followers. We hope this study encourages you.
The book of James is a great "How To" live like a follower of Jesus in our everyday life kind of book when it is presented in context. We hope this Book Study of James is helpful to you.
Learn how the early church and followers of Jesus dealt with the political systems of their time?
Do the wedge issues the "church" has created damage the witness of Jesus and the Gospel, and are these issues really helping or actually harming other human beings?
Were Adam and Eve real people? Was Jonah really swallowed by a giant fish? Was there really a "Noah's Ark" and was the flood a real event? Why is God so angry in the Old Testament? These are just a few Bible stories that tend to conjure up some very disturbing questions about God. We hope you find some surprising and helpful answers as we work through these stories in their proper context.
Realizing and creating your own "self-care plan" should be at the top of our to-do list. Tips for inner peace and mindfulness are just a couple of the many gems Dr. Portia shares with us.
Dr. Portia Jackson Preston started her garden to create a healing space for herself as she worked to support others. Along the way, she learned important lessons about how to navigate challenging times with resilience. We hope Dr. Portia's stories encourage and empower you.
We hope our non-hearing community members, family, and friends find this playlist of Bible Studies helpful. All of our videos on this playlist are in ASL.
Christian Worship Songs With Lyrics are a special kind of experience that can help you connect & contemplate the vastness of God and His immeasurable amount of love for you.
In this mini diary video I call out the worst advice churches give to parents with kids who are LGBTQ. If your church advises or even hints that you as a parent should shun your child, you need to find a new church or faith community. That kind advice is 100% inconsistent with the teachings of Jesus in the Bible.

In this mini dirty laundry diary video clip I ask "what would you do and how would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot? What if everyone else was LGBT Q+ and you were not, but if you wanted to get to heaven you had to make yourself change into being LGBT... That would be CRAZY right?" Yet that is what is pounded into LGBT people who want to be part of most church communities. Find an open and affirming church, a progressive church that welcomes everyone just like Jesus. This year documented proof will be made public that exposes the words that were taken out of the Bible and added in the Bible that would encourage Fundagelical churches to target and demonize the LGBTQ community. Get ready folks!✋😃🤚
In this quick video I cover one of the most offensive words used to disparage and dehumanize LGBTQ people. The "H" Word is used by fundamentalists and evangelicals, aka, Fundagelicals, to degrade the humanity of people they have been misled to believe the Bible condemns. It's not a Bible word. The Truth has been uncovered that the "H" Word was added to the Bible when certain members of the religious right within the publishing industry inserted the "H" word in the Bible to replace a word that is NOT who or what LGBT people are. It's the big cover-up and the Fundagelical agenda to marginalize and dehumanize LGBTQ people.
