We like to tell conversion stories, but we don’t like to think about where conversion starts… with being wrong! And while we are painfully aware of the many ways we fall short and are wrong in our behavior, we are literally unable to know where we are wrong in our beliefs! These chapters teach important lessons about conversion and change in the lives of Paul, Peter, and the early Church.

Reading: Acts 6-9 (for July 14); 10-15 (for July 21)

The beginning of Acts tells of conversion, courage, and community. Peter, now converted so he can strengthen others, powerfully testifies no matter the cost. People are “troubled in their hearts” and turn to Christ, and join an ideal community where all are cared for.

Have faith in Jesus, even though you haven’t seen him. This is the message of each of the gospels. And Jesus’ message to us is to love each other during this life.

In addition, each gospel has a distinct emphasis: Mark teaches us to overcome fear with faith; Matthew encourages us to tell the world that God is with us; Luke teaches us to recognize Jesus through faith and covenant; and John encourages us to live our love.

Reading: Mark 16; Matthew 28; Luke 24; John 20-21.

Jesus’ crucifixion isn’t really about his death… it is about misunderstanding, humiliation, and the tragic subversion of Jesus’ proclamation that the Kingdom has come near.

Gethsemane. These chapters teach us some of the hardest, most essential lessons life requires. How do we deal with betrayal? How do we have the strength to show up for each other? And most importantly, how do we align what we want with what must be? How do we shift, turn, return, to God’s path?

Reading: Mark 14; Matthew 26; Luke 22; John 18 (Also John 13-17 from last week).

SECRET BIBLE CODE REVEALS THE EXACT DATE OF THE END OF THE WORLD!!

As attention getting as that headline is (though would we really want to know? I doubt it), what these chapters teach is far more useful: How we can live so well, so awake, and so ready that it does not matter when Jesus returns, when the world ends, or when our own lives end. We can live ready to die tomorrow and ready to live a century. And I dearly pray we can transition to sustainability so human civilization can last another two thousand years if needed.

Jesus’ protest in the temple got him killed. In these chapters we see him as the powerful Messiah, coming into the seat of power triumphant yet humble and then standing up to corruption in the holiest most powerful institution of his day. These powerful actions drive home Jesus’ teachings that we should align our principles and practices, and live in such a way that we can peacefully explain to others the choices we make.

Most of our stories have to do with relationships, usually relationships that end “happily ever after”. In reality, marriage is much more complicated! This episode explores the idea, ideal, and history of marriage, as well as what makes a good marriage on earth as it is in heaven. And yes, I have a compelling answer to the question of whether Jesus was married.

“A Kingdom, Which Shall Never Be Destroyed”

“A Kingdom, Which Shall Never Be Destroyed” “Let Us Rise Up and Build” “The Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord”

The final three lessons of the year fit together quite nicely. Lesson 47 evokes the inbreaking of the kingdom, and the dominion of God… hoped for on earth, but more urgent in our souls. Lesson 48 focuses on restoration and our need to focus our efforts on worthy tasks. And Lesson 48 thrills us with the idea of God’s complete victory, making everything right… yet we must take care that our hope for God’s triumph does not prevent us from living sustainably and prepared here and now.
