Big Idea: This life purpose was given to Abraham - be blessed in order to be a blessing. In the great chain of being, it is given to some to realize that they have been blessed, in order that the chain of blessings be increased. That is the way God is working out the purposes of creation for blessing. God is more Omega than Alpha.

Duration: 17 mins 23 secs
Big Idea: The ancient story of the flood and restoration of life on earth is another piece of God's Big Story with humans and life on earth. God has made this Creation and Covenant the source of a trustworthy relationship with humans. Can humans still trust this God to keep the promise? Can God still trust the humans to remember it?

Duration: 16 mins 23 secs
Big Idea: History is replete with "flood" stories--stories about life on earth being threatened by wickedness. Every devastating war, every community catastrophe has the potential to wipe out life. When life is threatened on this planet, what is required for human life to again flourish?

Big Idea: In the human-constructed world of our time we have everything we need to preserve the life and health of the planet, including the thriving of human life. God has "shut us in." Now we are the current stewards of decisions that our ancestors have made--for good or for ill--to care for the planet that is our ark. Are we going to honor the calling to obey God and care for the planet?

Big Idea: Why does evil persist in a universe that God declared "Good?" This question has haunted humans forever, so much so that philosophers and thinkers have a name for it, the "theodicy" question. How we deal with this serious question will lead us either into life or despair.

Duration: 15 mins 22 secs
Big Idea: The creation that is still going on in you is what you and God are doing together in creating the purpose of your life. The most persistent feature of creation is it's continual evolution toward a future of a lovely and beautiful purpose. The universe is becoming aware of itself and of its purpose alongside its creator.
Sun, Oct 07, 2018
Duration: 19 mins 29 secs
Big Idea: How does creation continue by means of the diversity of languages and peoples and cultures? Does diversity only drive us into tribes, or does it contribute to healthy human thriving? What is God up to in a world of immense cultural diversity?

Duration: 16 mins 57 secs
Big Idea: "Am I my brother's keeper?" is the question that Cain asks of God. From the rest of the story we know that God's answer is "Yes, you are!" Even though Cain is punished for his crime, God still is taking care of him by not abandoning him to the cycle of retribution, so that the cycle of killing and vengeance will be stopped by Cain's forehead mark.

Big Idea: The consequences of falling out of step with creation blessings can be catastrophic. But God's care for God's creation doesn't stop with expelling the earth creatures from the garden. God is still taking care of them by making them clothing, to protect their vulnerability.

Big Idea: The Universe, and all life within it, is fundamentally a blessing, fundamentally good, and created to flourish, with us in it. This doesn’t prevent hardship and difficulties, but it does strengthen us as we go through tough times. It allows us to deepen in faith and spirituality without fear. Life in all its joys and struggles is a blessing–which means, it is something worth sharing.
