Description:A common misperception is that the Christian life is all about avoiding messes and staying out of trouble. But following Jesus isn’t about avoiding something; it’s about becoming something.
Description:I know a mess when I see one because I am a mess. When we acknowledge our messes, we're a baby step away from acknowledging God. Your mess has the potential to bring God near you.

Description:In the days and weeks preceding the first Easter, the high priest Caiaphas stood in the presence of Jesus, the Savior of the world. But he refused to abandon his quest for control and surrender to his Creator. It's easy to dismiss Caiaphas as a fool, but what have we put in the place of God?
Description:Why do we build churches? Aren't there enough churches in Pittsburgh? We build churches because the church encourages us to embrace a mandate that could change everything: love your neighbor as yourself.

Description:Everyday, our friends and neighbors feel like life is aginast them, and in some cases, that God is agianst them.

Even more importantly, what if our church and our lives becamse a megaphone to let them know Jesus is FOR them?
