For the week of: Wednesday, April 5, 2017

 

For the next two weeks we will be focussing on Resurrection Sunday, and the Youth-Led Good Friday Service. Each Wednesday will be a mixture of practice for all of our various youth-led parts, as well as a discussion focussed on Jesus’ resurrection and what that means for the world.

This week we will be looking at John chapter 21. After the resurrection, the disciples returned to fishing. Jesus met them on the beach and asked Peter three times (parallel to the three denials) about Peter’s love for him.

This week we will be looking at John chapter 20. Thomas was absent when the disciples saw Jesus after the resurrection. Later, Thomas encountered Jesus and made his confession. Jesus blessed Thomas for seeing and believing.

This week we will be looking at John chapter 19. After three years of public ministry where he often spoke about his suffering and death, Jesus was arrested, beaten, and crucified until he died. This was the worst day for his family and disciples, but it was a day God had planned since the creation of the world.

Welcome to our communiqué on the Elevate blog!

For the week of: Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Jephthah’s rather flawed rule (sacrificed daughter, civil war with Ephraim) points to the downward spiral of the Age of Heroes. This leads us to the final Judge… Samson. He is a dichotomy—great triumph and great failure all in one man.

Samson’s story is one that shows God’s forgiveness and justice. He uses Samson despite all of his failings. Though Samson made many mistakes, he still accomplished many things and in the end saw the error of his ways. What can we learn from his turnaround? What can we learn about the consequences of our actions even after we have repented?

Sadly, Samson is the final recorded Judge. After all that God has done throughout the Age of Heroes, Israel continued to fall away. Their story is a cautionary tale, but it is more than that. Despite everything that Israel did to defy God, He continually answered their cries for help. He didn’t have to. He had already given Israel more chances than they deserved. What does His love and mercy throughout the Age of Heroes teach us about our relationship with Jesus?

We will answer these questions and more this week at Elevate!
