Seek First | Seeking a Solitary Place
What gift might be wrapped in this season of isolation? Most of us aren't leaping to answer such a question though it's probably an important one. From Mark 1:35-39, we'll take a look at how Jesus intentionally withdraws to be with God, regardless of what's happening around him. For sermon slides, visit realityboston.com/teachings.

Advent Together | A Son is Given
On the last Sunday of Advent, we're going to take time to reflect on a popular passage of Scripture— John 3:16. If you grew up in church you know it well, and perhaps it's lost its meaning to you. But as we actively await the Messiah's second coming, we must do so by remembering his great love, humility, and lavish generosity towards us. For sermon slides, visit realityboston.com/teachings.

Advent Together | Fear Not
Many of us know the story of Jesus' birth well, and we know that his conception was nothing short of miraculous.

From Luke 2:1-12, Sarah Cowan Johnson reminds us that God is with us, and is as work.

Advent Together | Vulnerability
As we continue our sermon series in the season of Advent in Luke 1, we see God choose to come to us in a vulnerable state— that of an infant. Not only that, but through an unlikely woman, carefully set aside to care for and raise him. We see God's faithfulness to go to great lengths to bring salvation to the children he loves.

The Life of Joshua | Joshua, the Apprentice of Moses
Where we're headed in life is almost always tied to how we steward our present moments.

Prayers of the People | Prayer for Boldness
Arrest. Trial. Threats. This is the reality of Peter, John and the early Church for healing and proclaiming the Good News. Upon their release, they return to the community of believers and pray -- not for safety but for boldness. As followers of Jesus, we will be called to heal and to speak truth to power. We will be judged and threatened in spaces beyond our competency and influence. In these moments of confrontation and intimidation what will our response be? Will we turn inward, or will we run to our community of faith and collectively pray for BOLDNESS? Will we continue the work of restoration and reconciliation? "Speaking holy words has serious consequences." - Willie Jennings

Prayers of the People | Pharisee and Tax Collector: Prayer of the Destitute
In life it's so easy to fall into the trap of showing the best version of ourselves. This can also be true of our approach to God in prayer. In Luke 18 Jesus contrasts two different people and their posture to prayer, and in this parable, he points out that the calling of prayer is about brutal honesty with who we really are in the light of God's presence, and our great need for HIm.

Prayers of the People | Simeon and Anna: Waiting Faithfully
There are few things we despise more in life than being asked to wait. Proverbs 13 says that hope deferred makes the heart sick. Throughout the scriptures and in our own experience we find ourselves and others waiting on God. Waiting is such a common part of life, but how, as followers of Jesus, do we wait well? In Luke 2 we are introduced to Simeon and Anna, two godly people who show us a path for what it looks like to wait faithfully upon God. For sermon slides, visit realityboston.com/teachings.

Prayers of the People | Prayer of Repentance + Restoration
When it comes to asking God for forgiveness, many doubt that God is willing to forgive them. Not only that, we likely mistake worldly sorrow with Godly sorrow and true repentance. From Psalm 51, a prayer of repentance from King David, Ruthie Kim shares about how passionate God is about forgiveness, and true intimacy with Him.
