The Good Life

Good Life bannerThe next two weekends at Eastbrook I will speak about “The Good Life” from Psalm 23.

In a world the trivializes nearly everything and mocks both meaning and depth, what sort of truths do we encounter in Psalm 23? While much of our contemporary American Christianity relegates Psalm 23 to either sentimentalism or the closing days of our lives, what would it look like to truly enter into the realities found in Psalm 23 in our daily lives? What does it mean to live the “with-God” life where He is our Shepherd daily and all lifelong? I have a hunch that it would be the good life which so many people are desperately trying to find.

July 19/20 – “Living the Good Life” – Psalm 23:1-4

July 26/27 – “Sustaining the Good Life” – Psalm 23:4-6

What Makes You Wanna Shout?

On June 22 at Eastbrook Church, we had an outdoor worship service with 30 baptisms and block party afterwards called the Big Block Bash. It was a blast to see more than one thousand people spread out worshiping the Lord and celebrating what God is doing in our church, city, and individual lives.

Here is the short message that I preached in the service based out of Luke 19:1-10, where Jesus encounters Zacchaeus. I built the sermon off the question: “what makes you wanna shout?”

Living at the Intersection

Love Your Neighborhood bigWhat happens when individual believers and the church together live at the intersection of the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, of words and deeds, of proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel? I’ll tell you what…it’s dangerous and attractive faith.

This is the heart of what I talked about in my message this past weekend, “Living at the Intersection,” at Eastbrook Church. This was the second weekend in our series entitled “Love Your Neighborhood.”

The outline and video file for the message is below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here. You can access all the messages from the “Love Your Neighborhood” series here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Mark DeYmaz on Loving Your Neighborhood

2014-05-31 11.34.07This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, guest speaker Mark DeYmaz kicked off our series “Love Your Neighborhood” with a powerful and challenging message. Mark is the Pastor at Mosaic Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, and the founder of the Mosaix Global Network, a network of churches, organizations, and leaders seeking to strengthen multi-ethnic churches and ministry.

At a more personal level, Mark has been of help to me as the pastor of a multi-ethnic congregation both through his numerous writings (see Building a Healthy Multi-Ethnic Church and Leading a Healthy Multi-Ethnic Church) and personal conversations. Mark is working alongside of Elie Hasbani, who is the lead pastor for our new church plant coming in September 2014, Ethnos Church.

In his message, Mark speaks about what a neighborhood is, who truly is our neighbor, and what it means to love “the other.” You can view the message in its entirety below.
