Passage: Psalms 100
Duration: 33 mins 17 secs
In general, an architect might look more at the aesthetics and beauty of a building. In contrast, a civil engineer might spend time looking at the construction and functionality. In looking at this well known Psalm, the Hebrew poet has importance in the the beauty and emotion as well as in the poem´s construction which helps focus on the deeper meaning. Pr. Nathanael helps us see the chiastic structure of Psalm 100 to see the beauty of what God is trying to teach us.

An anchor keeps a ship secure in harbor. It can keep the bow of an enormous ocean going vessel pointed into the waves to keep it from capsizing. Strong links in an anchor prevent ships from drifting and colliding into other objects. A ship in a harbor without an anchor can be a devastating force. In the same way, love without an anchor, is like a ship bobbing around in tidal waves of history being moved about by currents and wind. The world tries to tell what love is apart from God. However, 1 John 4:8 states that God IS love. How does God´s being and action define love? The word "love" is not present in the Christmas story, but we see it displayed from beginning to end. Pr. Nathanael returns to the basics of John 3:16 to remind us where love should be anchored.

Passage: Luke 1:46-55
Series: Advent 2019
Duration: 36 mins 7 secs
Joy is not the same thing as happiness. It is not based upon circumstances. It is a delight in life that runs deeper than pain or pleasure. It is a quality of life and not a fleeting emotion. Can you experience joy even while grieving or suffering? The angels appeared to the shepherds saying they had GREAT joy for ALL people. So the answer is "yes." Pr. Nathanael Fawcett looks at Mary´s song, or magnificat, to better understand "joy" and how to have it.

Passage: Isaiah 9:2-7
Series: Advent 2019
Duration: 33 mins 20 secs
Clack – Clack – Clack - Clack… A broken wheel makes the entire grocery cart noisy and shacky. A little part of the wheel missing or damaged causes a lot of ruckus in the store, for the one pushing and for those around it. What can help make this grocery cart more peaceful? What can make our lives more peaceful? Pr. Nathanael looks at Scripture to better understand this term we often use a Christmas – Peace.

Passage: Luke 1:67-79
Series: Advent 2019
Duration: 36 mins 58 secs
The prophet Isaiah helped communicate God´s messages to the people of Israel. At that time, God told Isaiah that Israel would be taken into exile as a form of discipline. In His messages of coming judgement and doom, there was always a balance with prophetic announcement of hope that after the exile would come a period of new, glorious and amazing hope. This hope included a new king, a new Jerusalem, and a new purity of heart. Pr. Nathanael looks through Scripture, especially Isaiah 9, to draw the analogy for Believers today who are living in this world which is not our home, but looking forward to the future hope that God promises.
