What does it mean to be “all in” when it comes to church life? Why does it matter? In today’s message, we talked about that in light of 1 Corinthians 12.12-31a, and Mark 10.17-31. You can listen here:
We might think that attachment to our stuff is a modern phenomenon, but it was just as prevalent in biblical times. Jesus talks more about money, in the gospels, than he does about prayer! So it’s no surprise that he has an encounter with a rich ruler in Luke 18.18-30.

The picture of the Needle’s Eye was taken by my friend, Duncan Cameron (and features John Vissers, Moderator of the 138th General Assembly of The Presbyterian Church in Canada). The picture of the modern version of our Bible story was borrowed from jonathanmerritt.com. You can listen to the message by clicking here.
