Miscellaneous (Page 2)
Brant taught about the need to choose which voices we listen to–the positive ones or the negative ones. We need to focus on listening to G-d and not allow ourselves to be distracted by negative influences. He encouraged us to examine our own words to ensure that we’re speaking words that encourage and bring light.
In this week’s message, Brant teaches us that we’re called to repentance and that repentance means a life of change, restoration, and reconciliation for us.
As we enter the month of Elul, Brant taught about the importance of reconciliation in the forty days leading up to Yom Kippur and the centrality of forgiveness and reconciliation to community life. Yeshua taught that we need to forgive one another in order to be forgiven by the Father (Mark 11.25, Matthew 6.14-15).
In this week’s message, Brant exhorts us all (strongly) to find ways to serve in our community—serving being the highest calling as modeled by Yeshua. We also explored the tie between Romans 11, Ruth and the unique role Messianic Gentiles play within the Messianic Jewish movement.
In this week’s message, as we anticipate the arrival of Shavu’ot, Allen poses the question “How well do you count?” as he explores how a believer finds joy in the midst of life’s struggles and losses.
In this week’s message, Brant examines HaShem’s original purpose for women–that is, a well-matched helper for man who was intended to conquer and rule over creation with him–and contrasts that with how ancient and modern cultures have changed the role of women to suit themselves and have stolen from them the valor that HaShem intended.
This week, we had our annual Yalde HaB’rit (YHB) showcase–where we recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our young people that are enrolled in our homeschool co-op. In this week’s message, Brant teaches on what “from generation to generation” means to a community like our own.
