Perseverance, The End, and The Power That Keeps – Jude 17-25

How Not To Judge – Jude 8-16
We may know it is not our place to be judge of others. But what does that mean? And how can we avoid judgmentalism in the midst of our increasingly shame-based culture?

It Gets Weird – Jude 5-13
An archangel fights a duel with a devil over the corpse of a dead, Old Testament prophet? That’s weird stuff. So is a lot of stuff in this small letter. But what is even weirder than that to us today? Jude shows us just how strange it can get and why that is okay. From the 12th of July, 2015.
Receive, Contend for, Share – Jude 1-4
When something belongs to us, originates from us, we may do with it what we want. When something is given to us, entrusted to us, we must treat it in a completely different way. How is Christian Faith a gift like this? From the series 'Jude in July', the 5th of July, 2015.

Fret Not Thyself – Psalm 37:1-11
