When it seems like everything is changing or shaken up in a way you weren’t expecting, it’s important to go back to the foundation. Back to what you know is true. Back to who you know you are. Back to who you know God is. As we move forward in a new year, with all that happened in 2020 still heavy on our minds and hearts, let’s remind ourselves of …

“Like writing, fisting is both a replicable skill and a rarefied art form.” This brachioproctic line begins writer Tausif Noor’s “Hand In Glove” (Artforum, 12 April 2019), a joyfully loaded review of William E. Jones’s novel I’m Open to Anything, released in 2019 by Los Angeles independent publisher We Heard You Like Books. In this searching conver…
 
Although we’re embarking on a new year (and let’s be real –– we’re relieved to head into 2021, right?), we can’t deny how much the events of 2020 disrupted all of our lives in tons of different ways. We’re still dealing with the effects of all that happened! At Crossroads, we know God wants to do a unique work of restoration in us individually and …

In every great story of fiction we find a few key characters: there’s always a hero trying to head home, and there are always characters trying to help or hinder the hero. In the same way, our own choices can either help or hinder our journeys forward. Reliving the past makes us our own worst enemies––it keeps us stuck, often in shame or regret, an…

When God came to rescue his creation, he drew near to us in the birth of Jesus. Angels sang, shepherds worshiped, Mary and Joseph were in awe––it’s a miraculous story. But sometimes we forget the humility of the circumstances Jesus chose to enter. Mary was a first-time mom. The nation of Israel was oppressed by Roman rule. A wicked king was bent on…

“Let’s stop talking about Philip Guston and start talking about structural racism.” This has been critic Nikki Columbus’s refrain through the past season, issuing what many considered the final word of a furious debate surrounding the postponement of a Guston retrospective. Titled “Guston Can Wait” and published October 27, 2020 in N+1, the text (w…
 
In a year as tumultuous as 2020 has been, it can be hard to see where God has been at work. As we pick up where we left off in the Christmas story, we’ll find encouragement for all the problems we face, no matter how big or small––because it’s in some of the humblest circumstances that God works in the most unexpected and powerful ways. And when Ma…

When the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to tell her she would give birth to the Messiah, the news was both wonderful...and terrifying. Mary would have been publicly shamed and humiliated and probably disowned by a lot of people in her community. So what did she do? She jumped right into humble service on behalf of someone else. Crazy, right? If we …

Because we’re so familiar with the Christmas story, it’s easy to forget Mary was probably a teenager when Gabriel showed up and told her she would give birth to the Messiah. She wasn’t wealthy. Nazareth was a small town. No one in the Christmas story was “special” by worldly standards. God’s majesty and sacred presence came to a very humble place. …

It’s a funny law of the universe––as we thank God for what we have, we naturally start to become less greedy and more generous. Thanksgiving isn’t just a holiday we celebrate in the United States, it’s a way of life and the “antidote” to some of our deepest issues! As we study Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 9 together, we’ll find the key to our own …

Season 4 of Momus: The Podcast invites art critics and journalists to talk about an important piece of their writing – texts that carry stories, that ran in prestigious publications to great acclaim, or that were killed under tense circumstances. Every two weeks, co-hosts Sky Goodden and Lauren Wetmore will ask a different writer to read their text…
 
You always know when someone smells either really good or really bad, right? What’s funny (and cool) is, as Christians, we’re supposed to carry the “fragrance” of Christ into the world. The idea is, wherever we go, we “smell like” Jesus––we make people think of God when they observe how we live! To do that in the best way possible means we have to …

What do I do? That’s a question we find ourselves asking so many times over the course of our lives. When given the opportunity to have anything in the world he wanted from God, King Solomon asked for the ability to answer this question. He asked God for wisdom. In this message we will explore how wisdom is the art and craft of building a life that…

Most of us are never just satisfied with our lives “as is.” Sometimes that means we need to practice contentment...but other times, this is actually a good thing, because on some level we’re all longing for transformation. The beautiful news is that Jesus wants to transform us as we walk with him - and that takes shape in lives that produce beautif…

Are you passionate about your work? Would it surprise you to know that 87% of Americans say they have no passion for their work? But what if your job, school or stay-at-home work is the exact place God has placed you to powerfully use you to advance both His presence and His principles? What if your life’s work can actually become a Work of Life? J…

In our current cultural moment, we all kind of just define ourselves however we want, right? We build our identities on various principles, passions, goals. The bummer thing is, how we understand ourselves drives how we live and why we do what we do, so if what we’ve built our identities on crumbles...everything else does too. That’s why the only c…

There’s always two sides to every story, and the truth is somewhere in the middle. When it comes to restoring relationships, the person who humbles themselves in pursuit of peace is the person building the bridge, while the other is building a barricade. Jesus was the ultimate bridge-builder between God and man. How can we better identify whether w…

God never saves us for isolation––he saves us for community. In a world divided along every line imaginable, Jesus is truly unique. He brings together people from wildly different cultures, backgrounds, languages and ethnicities to form a relational network called the church, God’s family, the body of Christ. It means none of us is ever truly alone…

Who is Jesus––really? Whether you love him or hate him, everyone has an answer to that question. A great teacher. A prophet. A healer. A wandering troublemaker. A divisive rabbi. All of these answers are true in one sense or another, but eventually we all have to take a side on the most controversial of Jesus’ names: Son of God. Is Jesus really God…

We all understand the difference a little care can make, but it seems that all-too-often we forget how important it is to take care of ourselves. In this message Pastor Daniel unpacks how God is interested in - and has a plan for - every nuance and detail of our lives, and how self-care is not just a practical discipline, but a spiritual one as wel…

Every broken place in our lives is an opportunity for healing, and no healing is impossible. Broken relationships are some of the most painful places we inhabit in this life. That’s why, when we’re confronted with broken relationships, we can take courage and find great comfort in knowing Jesus is the great Reconciler. He reconciled us to God, and …

The Bible uses some pretty big language to talk about Jesus…Preeminent. Firstborn of creation. Humbled and exalted. What does it all mean? And, what difference does it make in our lives? Understanding who Jesus is makes all the difference in the world. In a world that’s constantly changing, uncertain, sometimes overwhelming, Jesus is hope and truth…

2020 has been tough –– there’s no denying it! But as we all search desperately for a “return to normal” or even a “new normal,” let’s not miss the ways God maybe doesn’t want us to go back to how things were...As we seek the Lord for fresh vision moving forward, let’s expect the very best from him because for the follower of Jesus, the best is alwa…

We’ve all got those friends who are super blunt and say the things we were thinking about but didn’t verbalize. Jesus is kind of like this, but often he asks questions instead––the kinds of questions that get us to say those things that are on our minds and reveal what’s truly going on in our hearts. When we let God’s words to us (including his que…

2020 is a Year of Renewal for Crossroads...but it definitely hasn’t turned out like we expected! Our dream continues to be revival in our community and in our world, but global revival begins with individual renewal. This Wednesday night we’re taking a look at what biblical renewal looks like for us as individuals and as the worldwide people of God…
