Sunday and the Rapture

It seems like I have been handed some of the more challenging passages of Scripture over the past four years.  I love being a part of the teaching team at Creekside Church, but so far I have talked about Circumcision, Talking Donkeys, and the like.  Last sunday was no different.  I spoke on 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 a large part of that section of scripture is about the Return of Christ and the rapture.  Many people have said many things about the return of Christ, and growing up I was terrified of Jesus coming back.  Paul wrote this passage to talk encourage the Thessalonians and to show that the return of Christ should inspire hope.  So here is the sermon from last sunday morning:

A very helpful resource on all this stuff was from Mars Hill, when Mark Driscoll did a series going through Revelation.  This series was different than any other Revelation sermons I had heard before because it focused on Worship throughout the book of Revelation.  Check it out.

Lauryn Hill – Gotta Find Peace of Mind

I was listening to some CD’s that I just imported into my iTunes, and I heard this song from Lauryn Hill’s Unplugged Album. Everytime I hear this song I have to fight back tears. I wish our corporate worship times in church could be this authentic. Please watch this video, it’s worth 10 minutes of your day. Trust me.

I can’t vouch for everything Lauryn has said or done, but this song is so real.  I thought I would share it with you all.
