Which do you need more: new things, or new places to store them? We conclude our “Uncluttered” series with a lesson from Jesus about what to do when we start thinking we might need bigger barns. Pastor Luke teaches from Luke 12:13–21 in “Bigger Barns,” part 6 of his 7-part series “Uncluttered.”
This week, we’ll talk about something that’s never been easy, but it is increasingly rare in our society: forgiveness. Why is it a discipline, and how can we practice it? Pastor Luke looks at Ephesians 4:30–5:2 in “Relinquish,” part 3 of his 7-part series “Uncluttered.”
This week we’ll study one of the most difficult spiritual disciplines. But it doesn’t need to be. People rarely struggled to practice it in Bible times, or even 200 years ago. Pastor Luke preaches from Genesis 28:10–19 in “Stairway to Heaven,” part 2 of his 7-part series “Uncluttered.”

Being a disciple means trusting Jesus enough to put his teaching into practice. But when you’re stressed out and have too much going on, taking on a new project doesn’t seem wise—even if Jesus recommends it. But what if Jesus already knows that? Pastor Luke preaches from Mark 2:23–28 in “Uncluttered,” the first message in a new series “Uncluttered.”
People often begin a new year by making resolutions. We might finally kick a bad habit, say, or to tackle some project or take on a responsibility. How can people of faith make that kind of change in their lives? What guidance does our faith give us? What help is it? Pastor Luke looks at Exodus 3:7–12 in “Now Go.”
Peace on Earth is what the angels sang to the shepherds. But people sometimes find it difficult to experience that peace, especially in December. Maybe we aren’t thinking about peace the right way. What else might the angels have been trying to communicated? Pastor Luke teaches from Luke 2:1–20 in “Peace on Earth.”
