    The rules say: don't tell them too much, don't be real or vulnerable. Yet these rules keep us stuck.

    Come As You Are
    Grace is the centerline of Christianity. When we don't embrace grace it causes us to continue to be trapped in a cycle of sin-death. But God embraced us with grace, and called us to be channels of His grace through acceptance of others.

    Deceit
    Many of the characters of the Bible are subject to deceit. We are as well. But the comforting truth is that God's plan is never hijacked by deception. His purposes will always be worked out.

    Chosen
    Our culture says choose the best, the brightest, the fastest, and the biggest. But when God chooses He tends to choose the unconventional, the unlikely. That is the pattern of the Kingdom.

    Covenant
    Every covenant includes a rite of admission. For Abraham that right was the act of circumcision for all the men who were part of his household. In circumcision they showed they agreed to be counted among God's covenant people. For Christians, we enter into that covenant relationship through the action of baptism.
