A new work of God in San Diego's East Village

Matthew 18.21-35 from September 17, 2017

In the context of a discussion on sin in the church community, Peter asks Jesus how many times he should forgive – seven times?  Jesus’ reply and the following parable challenge us to forgive indefinitely.  We talk about the challenges of forgiveness and the calling that Jesus places on his disciples to forgive.

Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52 from July 30, 2017

We look at the parables of the mustard seed, the yeast, the buried treasure, the pearl of great worth, and the dragnet.  We focus on the parables of the mustard seed and the yeast, noticing their scrappiness and their need for “death” or “emptying” in order for growth.
