Upside Down: Be Prepared…BYOF

Jesus tells a parable about five foolish bridesmaids and five wise bridesmaids that seems upside down to other parables Jesus taught about grace, mercy, and sharing. Jesus criticizes the unprepared for not bringing enough oil and highlights the reward for those who have arrived with enough resources. This message will examine what Jesus is teaching us about faith and preparation.

I Am… the Light of the World


We rarely experience the disarming quietude of total darkness. We have so much artificial light that we can hide from the darkness that otherwise surrounds us. Darkness with all its confusion and dread; light with all its promise and warmth. Jesus knew the power of the metaphor of light when He described Himself as the light of the world.
