Jesus teaches us that those who humble themselves will be exalted, and those who exalt themselves will be humbled. He also challenges us to invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind to our banquets, rather than seeking our own honor and reward.

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly."
-- Matthew 11:28-30 MSG

This series is based on the life of Joseph. We will be exploring how to experience healing from broken trust, find joy, meaning, and purpose, and restore relationships with God, ourselves, and others. Betrayal is unfortunately all too common in our lives, whether it's through personal, spiritual, psychological, or social trauma. But the story of Joseph shows us that there is hope for healing and restoration, even in the midst of the pain and brokenness.

Even though we strive to make Christmas the most joyful, wonderful and celebratory time of the year, in reality what we read in the holy scripture is entirely different. It was a difficult, doubtful, painful, and even violent time. It is very obvious. The stable was stinky and messy. We will dive into this series seeing that many lives related with the Christmas story were actually difficult messes, and the place where Jesus was born - in a stable - must have been surrounded by messy and stinky animals. But from those messes and from that stink, the Savior was born. It can get stinky and messy and still be Christmas
