    Scripture Passage:  Ecclesiastes 3:1-13
     
    This classic song is an almost exact quote of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, which gives wisdom for dealing with life's many frustrations and disappointments. It reminds us that God has given us many seasons of life, so we need not miss the blessings of our current season by longing for a season long past. Ecclesiastes is a call for contentment as we live in a rapidly changing world.

    The Cross and the Jukebox: “What Love Really Means”
    Song:  "What Love Really Means " - by J.J. Heller
    Link:  https://youtu.be/PgGUKWiw7Wk
    Scripture Passages:  Luke 6:32-35, 1 John 4:11, Romans 5:8, Mark 12:31
     
    "What Love Really Means" delves into the meaning of agape love, which Jesus calls us to continually. Christian faith involves trusting that God overflows with love for His world, and that our purpose is to receive that love and then give it back out to others, especially those who are rejected and forgotten by the world.

    “Roll Away Your Stone” uses images of Easter morning and of the prodigal son to talk about the experience of trying to restore relationships broken by sin, and in so doing gives a picture of grace and of what grace looks like in our relationships with one another.

    Song:  "American Pie" - by Don McLean
    Link:  https://youtu.be/iX_TFkut1PM
    special guest:  Michael Bird
     
    “American Pie” is a lament for the decline of a culture, both musically and in general. The gospel speaks to our anxiety about decay and decline by giving us the hope of renewal and resurrection when Christ returns in glory.

    The Cross and the Jukebox: “I Walk the Line”

    Scripture:  Proverbs 4:23, Matthew 15:17-20
     
    In what may be Johnny Cash's most famous song, he talks about how our real enemy lurks within - in the heart. Not the organ that pumps blood through our veins, but that invisible, intangible place where we experience all of our emotions. Wisdom involves monitoring our hearts and knowing what is going on within them.

    Fruitbearers
    Series: (All)
    Scripture:  John 15:8, 16
     
    One of the big marks that we are truly followers of Jesus is that we bear fruit in our lives, as opposed to simply stating what we believe.

    Everyone is invited to follow Jesus, and Jesus calls us to trust in him in such a way that we are freed from fear. What does that look like when we live it out?

    What Makes You Happy: “Content with Your Life”
    Scripture:  Ecclesiastes 4:4, 6-8
     
    Happy people have a common practice: They have learned how to be content, and do not spend their lives trying to be richer or smarter or better, and resist the temptation to compare themselves with others.
