Hey City Beautiful! I had the opportunity to interview your amazing Pastor on my Podcast last week and I just wanted to share it with all of you. Praying Jesus' grace and favor over all of you in this season!!! Check out this new podcast entitled, “Where Grace Abounds”. A program dedicated to promoting the complete Gospel message of the Lord Jesus Christ. Meaning, the Gospel is not just about putting faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection so that we can go to Heaven when we die. See additionally, the Gospel is also the good news that Jesus came so that His followers could have life and life more abundant while they live out their days here on Planet Earth. Moreover, this program also aims to celebrate individuals who are being perpetually transformed for the better by both the Gospel message and the balance of what is contained in God’s Holy Word. Subscribe to “Where Grace Abounds” so you don’t miss an episode! We are on: itunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Tune-in, iHeart Radio and everywhere you listen to your favorite podcasts! https://open.spotify.com/show/089avJ2mFpzZkfdqevfdKr?si=bQiRcymxTh-1eAW8Ku9iAw https://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/show/thepuritypodcast/id/15782888
So stoked to put this together!
As I've been in prayer this week, I've been very keyed in on the reality that the novelty of isolation will be quickly wearing off, and we will enter into a space where it is so easy to become numb. We cannot let that happen. Tomorrow I will be talking about the audacity of prayer in trying times, and the need to learn how to grief in order that we might cultivate true hope and justice.
Thank you to all who joined us in prayer this evening for my dear friend Andrew Brunson, who is awaiting trial tomorrow. I know it means so much to him to know we are lifting him up in his time of need. Here is a recent article about his plight.
Feliz Navidad querida familia!!!
Hello! I used to attend this church back in 2012 when I lived in Orlando, and have continued to follow on social media. I have since moved back to Ohio. Now my husband and I are most likely moving to the Cocoa Beach/Melbourne area! I was wondering if anyone had any connections there and could recommend a church? We have no idea where to start, as our only people connections so far are non-believers. Thank you so much!
Morning, is there an email or facebook account for whomever runs podcasts? I'm hearing impaired it's a rough time for people like me. Not having transcripts. Thank you!
Thank you for your prayers for Shannah Jeffers and Alexander. God bless you.

Operating as usual

Too easily we find ourselves living a beautifully packaged life of self-destruction. Following the Sermon on the Mount, this follow-up to The Good and Beautiful God guides us to look behind these character flaws and to replace our false beliefs with Jesus' narratives about life in the kingdom of God.
Join Johnny Michaud via Zoom on Thursdays at 7pm for this study on "The Good and Beautiful Life" by James Bryan Smith. Link in bio.

What do I do when I hit a Wall in my faith journey? How can I make sense of overwhelming tragedy? Is my faith dependent on having the Right Answer in every moment? Where is Jesus in all the confusion, and what does it mean to truly turn to him in the darkest moments, when everything seems terrible?

The good news is these are not uniquely modern questions; they’ve lived at the heart of our faith tradition since the beginning. Our next series, (What to Do When) Everything is Terrible, will delve into Old Testament wisdom to show us how to remain faithful in trying times. Join us this Sunday at 10:10am for fellowship, and 10:30am for worship.

Cultivating a rich interior life with God gives us the fuel for meaningful action in the world about us. Each Friday morning we use the psalms to center us on God, allowing Him to speak his truth into our stories, wherever we may be. We then practice interceding for the Church and the world out of those revelations, enabling us to see with new eyes the Kingdom.
Join Ryan Adams via Zoom on Fridays at 9:45am for a time of contemplation and intercession. Link in bio.

Channeling state-of-the-art research, personal stories, and careful biblical study, Confronting Christianity explores 12 questions that keep many of us from considering faith in Christ. Look more closely, McLaughlin argues, and the reality of suffering, the complexity of sexuality, the desire for diversity, the success of science, and other seeming roadblocks to faith become signposts. Jesus becomes not a relic from the ancient world, but our modern world’s best hope.
Join Nicole Ponder on Wednesdays at 7pm, on Zoom or in-person, for this book study on "Confronting Christianity" by Rebecca McLaughlin. Women only. Link in bio.

Ryan will be continuing his IGTV conversations with Aaron Niequist this coming Friday at noon. Aaron is a liturgist, writer, and pastor currently living in NYC whose book, The Eternal Current, advocates for moving towards a more practice-based faith. DM us any questions you may have for Ryan and Aaron!

The Invisible War examines what every believer needs to know about Satan, demons, and spiritual warfare, offering a balanced look at this controversial subject. This provocative book will help Christians understand what the Bible says about these threats and will show them how they can safeguard themselves and their families through prayer.
Join Scott Armstrong via Zoom on Wednesdays at 7pm for a book study on "The Invisible War" by Chip Ingram. Link in bio.

In our broken world, ethnicity and racial identity are often points of pain and injustice. We can’t ignore that God created us with our ethnic identities. We bring all of who we are, including our ethnicity and cultural background, to our identity and work as God's ambassadors. Ethnicity and evangelism specialist Sarah Shin reveals how our brokenness around ethnicity can be restored and redeemed, for our own wholeness and also for the good of others.
Join Steve and Jenna Wimmer on Monday nights at 7pm for a study on "Beyond Colorblind" by Sarah Shin. citybeautiful.ch/praxis

We want to continue to grow in maturity in Christ, even in the midst of a pandemic. For the Fall season, we are focusing on hosting several intriguing studies that cover a wide array of topics. Our hope is that each person who considers our church “home” would commit to one study so we can all stay connected and encourage one another to stay the course. Prayerfully consider each of the studies laid out in this video - which will help you to grow in this next season? To sign up, follow the link in our bio.

“If it should happen one day – and it could be today – that I become a victim of the terrorism that now seems to encompass all the foreigners living in Algeria, I would like my community, my church, my family, to remember that my life was given to God and to Algeria; and that they accept that the sole Master of all life was not a stranger to this brutal departure.�I would like, when the time comes, to have a space of clearness that would allow me to beg forgiveness of God and of my fellow human beings, and at the same time to forgive with all my heart the one who will strike me down.�I could not desire such a death; it seems to me important to state this: How could I rejoice if the Algerian people I love were indiscriminately accused of my murder?�My death, obviously, will appear to confirm those who hastily judged me naïve or idealistic: “Let him tell us now what he thinks of it!” But they should know that...for this life lost, I give thanks to God. In this “thank you,” which is said for everything in my life from now on, I certainly include you, my last-minute friend who will not have known what you are doing...I commend you to the God in whose face I see yours. And may we find each other, happy “good thieves” in Paradise, if it please God, the Father of us both.” - Christian de Chergé, martyred in 1996 by Islamic extremists

Join us tomorrow, 10:10am online for our family fellowship time. Come early, connect with community, and we'll begin worship together at 10:30am.

Check out the blog for Ryan’s thoughts as we close our series on the spiritual gifts, CHARISMATA. https://www.citybeautiful.ch/blog/celebrating-our-gifts

Living by faith means acknowledging, embracing, and integrating all our doubts and shortcomings in order to come to Jesus as we truly are.

Faith, like grace, is more a gift we receive than a status we have to earn. We often measure our decisions by aesthetics(what feels good) or ethics(what’s right behavior based on conventional wisdom), but we must transcend them both with an open-handed approach to Jesus, like the man whose son was suffering from a demon: “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”

Do you ask for an increase in your faith? In what area of your life do you need more faith currently?

Lord, I will trust You,
Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown.
Give me faith to leave the old ways and break fresh ground with you.

Christ of the mysteries,
Can I trust You to be stronger than each storm in me?
Do I still yearn for Your glory to lighten me?

I will show others the care You’ve given me.
I will determine amidst all uncertainty always to trust.
I choose to live beyond regret, and let You recreate my life.

I believe You will make a way for me and provide for me, if only I trust You and obey.
I will trust in the darkness and know that my times are still in Your hand.
I will believe You for my future, chapter by chapter, until the story is written.

Focus my mind and my heart upon You, my attention always on You without alteration.
Strengthen me with Your blessing and appoint to me the task.
Teach me to live with eternity in view.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven.
Feed me, and, somehow, make my obedience count for You.

- St Brandan the Navigator

In an effort to stay connected and steward this season well, we want to move in the direction of “house churches” for the foreseeable future. Our heart is to safely and responsibly gather groups of 5-10 in people’s homes each Sunday morning to worship together using our online.church platform, then spend time sharing and praying with one another. The hope is that limited face-to-face commitments will give us the motivation we need to stay focused on the Lord and what he’s up to in and through our community.

If you would like to join a house church in your area, click the link in our bio to sign up and we'll connect you.

The gift of Faith is trust in Who God is and active participation in His story, especially when the going gets tough. Faith is not a blind escape from reality, nor is it passively waiting around for something to happen. In Hebrews 11, we see how the ancients were commanded for their faith - all these people stayed true to God, especially when everything around them told another story. They entered into the unknown as they followed God, even when they were full of doubt and confusion. They resisted the temptation to go backwards when there was suffering. They recognized that knowing Jesus was more valuable than all the creature comforts afforded them by the world around them. True faith transcends conformity and rebellion, realigning to following God wherever He may lead.

Lord, I will trust You,
Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown.
Give me faith to leave the old ways and break fresh ground with you.

Christ of the mysteries,
Can I trust You to be stronger than each storm in me?
Do I still yearn for Your glory to lighten me?

I will show others the care You’ve given me.
I will determine amidst all uncertainty always to trust.
I choose to live beyond regret, and let You recreate my life.

I believe You will make a way for me and provide for me, if only I trust You and obey.
I will trust in the darkness and know that my times are still in Your hand.
I will believe You for my future, chapter by chapter, until the story is written.

Focus my mind and my heart upon You, my attention always on You without alteration.
Strengthen me with Your blessing and appoint to me the task.
Teach me to live with eternity in view.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven.
Feed me, and, somehow, make my obedience count for You.

To wrap our series CHARISMATA, we're going to celebrate holy communion from home this coming Sunday. Grab whatever you can to represent the body and blood of Jesus for you and your family, and let's remember together all he has done for us in this season.

Join us this Sunday at 2pm for a Zoom deep dive on the spiritual gift of Pastor. Bring your questions and experiences ready to share! Register using the link in our bio.

The first move of compassion is to have our hearts broken for those who are just like us. The gospel of “me too” is often our first calling, but if we only love those with the same stories as ourselves, we enter into tribalism. The second move of compassion is to have our hearts broken for those who aren’t like us. There is power in being able to say to someone, “I don’t know what your story is like, but I’m with you in it”. The final move of compassion is to be broken open for the whole world, like Jesus, because there are no more barriers to our capacity to love.

What dividing walls of hostility keep you from loving “them”? Is God calling you to enter into the stories of those who aren’t like you so you can learn to love all over again?

Ryan will continue his IG Live conversations with faith leaders around the world tomorrow at 3:00pm. He will be talking with AJ Sherrill, current pastor at St. Peter's Church in Mount Pleasant, SC, and former pastor at Status here in Orlando. AJ has also recently released his book "The Enneagram for Spiritual Formation", intended to help us know ourselves more that we might know Jesus. DM us any questions you might have for Ryan and AJ!

Going Deeper Zoom Meeting: Pastor

This Sunday at 2pm we will take a deeper look into the spiritual gift of Pastor. Bring your questions and experiences ready to share! Register on The Weekly. citybeautiful.ch/weekly

People with the gift of Mercy put the bleeding heart of Jesus on display, and remind us why we do what we do in the Kingdom. We tend to turn away from pain to protect our comfort, but that keeps us in perpetual self-absorption and blind to the pain of those around us. Jesus’ whole life was motivated by compassion - the word means “to suffer alongside”. Jesus feels your pain in his guts, he can’t help but be moved by your pain.

Who best demonstrates the gift of Mercy to you?

In you, Father all-mighty, we have our preservation and our bliss.
In you, Christ, we have our restoring and our saving.
You are our mother, brother, and Saviour. In you, our Lord the Holy Spirit, is marvellous and plenteous grace.
You are our clothing; for love you wrap us and embrace us.
You are our maker, our lover, our keeper.
Teach us to believe that by your grace all shall be well, and all shall be well,
and all manner of things shall be well. Amen.

Julian of Norwich (14th C.)

In a new blog post on our website, Ryan walks us through Psalm 122 in a sacred reading that meditates on finding joy in our closeness to God and to one another. Click the link in our bio.

Our spiritual gifts work best when we’re outwardly-focused and other-centered, because we’re created to live as Jesus did. Can we believe we’re meant to live this way? That’s the vision for maturity found in Jesus’ example - moving from being self-centered to other-centered without losing our true selves. At all times, Jesus lived “incarnationally” - he was fully invested in those around him, in the moment, without losing his identity as God’s Beloved.

Can you trust that obedience to God in using your gifts will make you more wholly human?

People with the gift of giving show us that everything we have belongs to God and can be used for His Kingdom. We’re all called to a generous lifestyle, but it comes naturally to some who can lead the conversation. In Kingdom economics, it’s not about how much we give or don’t give, but about a joyful sacrifice to God that costs us in order to set us free from the miserly worship of our bank accounts or the stock market. The givers among us creatively find resources to support the vision of the church; they actively trust God to provide while being actively involved in His work on earth.

For all of us, it’s not how much or how little we give, but are we settled in our hearts to be generous? Do we joyfully look for opportunities to give, or do we have to be convinced for obligation’s sake?
