The Abounding Faithfulness of God | Lent Series 2024 | Pastor Rich Villodas

This final part in our Lenten series is all about the abounding faithfulness of God. Our Lenten series examines the five core attributes God uses to describe himself to Moses in Exodus 34:6: compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. These compelling characteristics are continuously repeated in the Bible more than any other biblical text. When something is repeated, it means it is important and we should pay close attention. Not only are these qualities of God emphasized through repetition, but they are also put on full display in the life of Jesus because he is the image of the invisible God (Col. 1:15). whatisgodlike #lent #faithful #faithfulness

In this sermon, Pastor Rich preaches on one of the commands that often reminds us of the wounding we have experienced or observed in others.

Episode 265: GRC2019: Pete Scazzero - Going Beneath The Surface of Racism

For the past 31 years, New Life Fellowship Church has been one of the most multiracial churches in North America. This happened out of an intentional, beneath-the-tip-of-the- iceberg approach to discipleship that deeply informed our approach to race and the gospel. (In fact, the development of Emotionally Healthy Discipleship around the world happened out of the crucible of racial reconciliation.) From the creation of speci c tools (e.g. genogram your family, incarnational listening, clean ghting) to a theology of brokenness and vulnerability and grief and loss, New Life developed speci c theological applications of the gospel to the powers and principalities around race to become a prophetic sign for the world.

Episode 262: GRC2019: Can You Drink The Cup? - Rich Villodas

Any attempt to address the connection of the gospel to matters of racial justice and reconciliation requires a spirituality marked by a “cruciformed” imagination. The death and resurrection of Jesus points to God’s great act of reconciling all things. It is out of this place that followers of Jesus are called to imitate him as we seek to build communities marked by truth, mercy, justice, and forgiveness. In this session, Rich Villodas explores the various “cups” we must drink to be people marked by the gospel’s great power to tear down barriers.
