Sacred Meals (#2): Guess Who's Coming to Dinner :: Donnell Wyche :: August 19, 2007 :: http://www.annarborvineyard.org/ This meal, this sacred meal is a celebration of the victory Christ won for us on the cross. It's a pronouncement of our freedom from death, sin, evil, and destruction. As we celebrate this meal, we share in the life that was awarded to us, but our failure to see that excluding the poor from the table is tantamount to evoking again the death that Christ defeated on the cross.

Conspiracy of Kindness #3: Good News for the Poor :: Don Bromley :: August 5, 2007 :: http://www.annarborvineyard.org/ In the Old Testament, the number seven was considered to be a kind of divine number. Every seventh day was to be sacred to God-a Sabbath Day. Every seventh year was to be a "Sabbath Year" a sabbatical year-in which the land was to rest. It was an expression of God's concern for his creation and of God's concern for the poor.

Conspiracy of Kindness(#2): Developing a Heart of Kindness and Compassion :: Don Bromley :: July 29, 2007 :: http://www.annarborvineyard.org/ Jesus is saying that the ultimate mark of a transformed life is a compassionate heart. The writer named John, on of Jesus' followers, writing to the early church says: "If you say that you love God, and you don't love the people around you, you're a liar." We love God insofar as we are loving other people.

Conspiracy of Kindness (#1): Introducing the Father's Love :: Donnell Wyche :: July 22, 2007 :: http://www.annarborvineyard.org/ Kindness outreach, or servant evangelism is a way of demonstrating God’s love for people by introducing them to the Father’s love through simple (and sometimes practical) acts of kindness. These simple acts of kindness open the door for people to receive the love of a caring and involved creator. Rom 2:4; 1 Tim 6:18; Eccl 11:6.

The Art of Being Yourself: The Paradoxical Path to the True Self :: Ken Wilson :: June 23-24 2007 :: http://www.annarborvineyard.org/ A Brief Philosophical Rabbit Trail: The Modern Debate About the Self's Existence From the earliest encounter with Jesus, the earliest disciples understood that in finding him, they were finding their truest self. If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose of forfeit himself? (Luke.9:23-25)

Jumbo-Jet Forgiveness (#2): Delivers Us From Evil (Ken Wilson) :: April 21-22, 2007 :: Summary: The message of Jesus was for just such a cultural context. Forgiveness delivers us from evil. The death and rising of Jesus is like an epic hinge in history. God has entered human history and is nudging it from within. The death and rising of Jesus is orchestrated by God to forge and to powerfully affirm the path of forgiveness as the means by which we are delivered from evil. http://www.annarborvineyard.org/

Text Messaging: The Bible in Your Everyday (#3) - The Biblically Informed Imagination (Don Bromley) :: April 1-2, 2007. Summary: The world is both agonizingly beautiful and astonishingly ugly. Full of enormous joy and full of enormous pain. The question I want to ask is, how as Christians do we respond to this? How do we live as genuine, authentic human beings in the midst of all this ugliness, and this beauty? We need a biblically informed imagination to make sense of a world of beauty and distortion, and our place in it. http://www.annarborvineyard.org/

Biblical understanding of human footprint on the creation is dynamic tension between pitfall & promise; unvarnished truth and hope.

From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." (Eph. 4: 11-16)

Permission to Speak Freely: In the Secret Chamber of Prayer (Ken Wilson) :: January 6-7 2007. Summary: We receive permission to speak freely in the secret chambers of prayer and there we learn to grant others the same permission. Thus we are to become a community that together learns to "speak the truth in love." Another approach: What if it's permission received, first from God for use with God in the prayer chamber, where we learn to grant this permission to others. Only then can we become the kind of community where the rule of love prevails as we learn to "speak the truth in love," and bring that freedom ito all we do.
