The Hidden Goodness of God

Living in this present darkness, it’s sometimes hard to see the goodness of the Father.

In this video, we look at The Golden Rule and discover how it reveals the face of the Father.

Injustice, futility, and pain can mask God’s face so that people don’t see his goodness.

But if we look behind the mask, we can see the face of God. And when we treat others as we would like to be treated, we show the face of God.

Sermon on the Mount: The Lord’s Prayer

Presented on 10/11/20 by Pastor Steve at Curwensville Alliance.

This week’s video didn’t work as well as we’d hoped, but it’s here for you. The actual service video will begin after the elder prayer.

As we’ve said, The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus’ way of telling us that we’re seeing things backwards. From the start, where he notes that poor in spirit being blessed, throughout the message, he shows us that life is different than we think.

In this message, I try to help you see that theme as it runs, even through Jesus’ teaching on prayer.

Open Fists :: Sermon on the Mount

Presented on 9/13/20 at Curwensville Alliance by Pastor Steve Shields

We live in a world of closed fists. Even clenched fists. Few of us really like it, but we learn to survive in it.

We learn, even, to emulate it.

In this sermon, we explore what Jesus says about our fists…. Well, he’s actually talking about our hearts.
