Sermon from Sunday, May 5, 2024 | God created us, which means God hates when any one of us is objectfied. At the heart of the seventh commandment is this: your neighbor is not an object. The words and ways of Jesus stand against objectifying my neighbor. For more information about Mosaic, visit us online at www.mosaicknox.org…

Sermon from Sunday, April 7, 2024 | Most of us are marked by some parental wound. So, what does it look like to honor those who we are so relationally tied to, and yet from whom we experience a void? The invitation most of us know is the one most of us spurn -- honoring those whose wounds we carry. For more information about Mosaic, visit us online…

| Each of us has that nagging question; what does God look like? But that might not be the right question. The second word prohibits us from making images that represent God precisely because it cannot be done. But just because we're unsure what God looks like doesn't mean we can't know what we sounds like. For more information about Mosaic, visit …

Sermon from February 4, 2024 | For next several months, we are going to enter into what are known as the “Ten Words” or the Ten Commandments. The ancient Law given to the people of God has something for us, in 2024. How might we re-oreint our desires and loves for the sake of God and his kingdom? The first commandment is first for a reason: God req…

Sermon from January 7, 2024 | God is doing a new thing in us, and He’s inviting us into deeper faith, and a better story. Crossing the Jordan River is an inflection point in the story of the Israelites; and it’s also an inflection point for us. Lean in as we ready ourselves for God’s new work among us. For more information about Mosaic, visit us on…

Sermon from December 3, 2023 | We would think that if God were to enter the world, he would come in the most unbelievable of ways. This, of course, makes his arrival on Earth all the more astounding. The long-awaited King came in a highly believable way, to easily discredited people, in the least ideal of circumstances. Why? Because that’s where we…

Sermon from November 19, 2023 | Ultimately, the desire for our life can be summed up in one word: “shalom.” In concluding our series on Vocation, Kyle Pickell breaks down what shalom is, and how we might join God in the work He is doing in our little corner of the world. For more information about Mosaic, visit us online at www.MosaicKnox.org…

Sermon from November 5, 2023 | In a world that cares about the bottom line of metric of up-and-to-the right, the story God writes for the world is counter-intuitive. What does it mean to be a human "being," rather than a human "doer." How might we root ourselves in rest and resistance, and not a slave to the machine and the story of futility? For m…

Message from October 29, 2023 | Your vocation does not center around your job, it also centers around your home. One of the vocational callings is parenting. God uses this calling to grow us up, and Ken and Nicky Norman pull back the curtain on what the invitation is from Jesus in the life of a parent. For more information about Mosaic, visit us on…

Sermon from Sunday, October 15, 2023 | While most of us probably don’t see it this way, your job is one of the primary environments that your spiritual formation gets worked out. But the big question is, “Does my job matter? Does it have any meaningful significance in the world?” Throughout the Scriptures and apexing in the life of Jesus, we see th…

Sermon from October 1, 2023 | Vocation: Identity | There’s a lot of discussion in circles around what God is calling you to do. But, before you can answer that, you need to listen to who He has called you to be. And only when that answer is solidified can you be free to go and do something. For more information about Mosaic, visit us online at www.…

Standalone Sermon from September 17, 2023 | God speaks in the Scriptures, but he does not speak incessantly. In fact, throughout much of the Bible, He is silent. And so it is with our life. Many times, the Spirit of God is so loud in our life it’s as if He’s speaking audibly. Yet, other times, the opposite is true. What do we do with the silence of…

Sermon from September 3, 2023 | Series: Three Circles | Title: Co-Mission | The church stands as a sign-post in every community she is in of another kingdom, of another city. God’s interruption into the world gives us both signs and symbols of his kingdom. But it is the summit of his kingdom that is both so startling, and the beginning of an altern…

Sermon from Sunday, August 20, 2023 | Series: Three Circles | Title: Community | Cynicism is the air that many of us breathe, but there is an alternative story we are invited into. A story of celebration. What if we became a church known for celebration over cynicism, authentic joy over easy skepticism. For more information about Mosaic, visit us o…

Sermon from August 6, 2023 | Series: Three Circles | Title: Communion |The story of God can be summed up in one word: intimacy. Our challenge is believing that God is really after intimacy with us; and it has nothing to do with our earning, and everything to do with our capacity to receive His unending invitation. For more information about Mosaic,…

Sermon from July 23, 2023 | Strangers and Citizens | A War For Our Soul Sometimes our real struggle is believing that God is for me; but other times it’s living under the assumption that the Devil is a figment of our imagination, not a real agent acting in the real world with real consequences. In Peter’s final exhortation, he calls the churches to…

Sermon from July 16, 2023 | Strangers and Citizens | Shepherds and the Shepherd In a world that is strongly skeptical of authority, what does Jesus say about godly authority? Who are the shepherds of the church, and what does their life look like in relation to Jesus, the true Shepherd? A look at Peter’s life and Jesus’ final exhortation to him spu…

Sermon from July 9, 2023 | Strangers and Citizens | Family in Exile | Life is hard; and that is no less true within the confines of discipleship to Jesus. What are the key markers that identify us as followers of Jesus, and how might our witness to the world increase with how we treat one another? Peter gives us some strong exhortations about how w…

In his last sermon at Mosaic which was preached on June 14th, 2023, Zeru shares how rest and love from the Mosaic community have shaped his heart to notice and witness the powerful presence and promises of God. Communities have the power to form or deform us, and communities that choose to listen to and love Jesus participate in a formation that ha…

Sermon from June 18, 2023 | We continue on in 1 Peter as we work through the implications of making a defense. What is an appropriate offense? How might we hold our convictions and welcome people into them? Listen as we lean into being a prophetic voice in our contentious world. For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mosaicknox.or…

Sermon from May 21, 2023 | When we read exhortations in the Scripture, we immediately flash to, “What do I need to do” without first considering, “Who I am.” Everything flows from our belief in how loved we are. There is important work to do; but not before naming our beloved-ness. For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mosaicknox…

Sermon from May 7, 2023 | We finally arrive at one of the more uncomfortable passages in 1 Peter: the one about submission. But before we enter into the semantics of how we do this, we must first answer Jesus’ most pressing question: “Do you understand what I have done for you?” For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mosaicknox.or…

Sermon from April 9, 2023 | Good Friday and Holy Saturday are reminders that following Jesus is marked by a ton of sin, pain, and doubt. And Easter Sunday is a reminder that God did not come to alleviate pain or overlook sin, but to prove life in him is resurrection — for us and His world. Death is inevitable, but it is not final. The dawn is comin…

On the Wednesday of Holy Week, Jesus entered the house of Simon the Leper and was anointed by a woman who many labeled as sinful, unwise, and a nuisance. But Jesus honored her worship and linked it to his Messianic purpose. In this podcast, there are a few reflections to help guide our meditations for this part of Jesus' Passion.…

Sermon from March 19th, 2023 | In this part of his letter, Peter starts addressing certain people groups; and his first order of business is to address how to live as citizens under a regime that isn’t kind to Christians. How does that translate now? How do we navigate the cluster that is American politics? And what does honor have to do with polit…

Sermon from March 5, 2023 | We come to the lynchpin passage in Peter’s letter to early Christians. He wants them marked by a sincere sense of taste of God, receptive to his mercy, and overcome by his presence. As we seek to put some stakes in the ground as a body, these are the traits we want as emblems over our house. For more information about Mo…

Sermon from February 19, 2023 | When we hear the commands of Scripture, our first instinct is to ask, “How can I do more?” But what if we’re starting in the wrong place? Everything about who we are is rooted in identity; who do we believe we are? From this place, we can become the type of people whose lives are compellingly strange; who are markedl…

Sermon from February 5, 2023 | Sometimes Christians feel shame for not being able to walk in joy as much as they'd like (or as much as they believe they're expected to). Psalm 5 shows us that the experience of joy is wrapped up in our awareness and experience of God as a refuge, a protector. This sermon digs into how we are discovered by joy and re…

Sermon from January 22, 2023 | When we think of hope, we think of wishes. But, Christians throughout the centuries do not see the resurrected Jesus as some far-off wish; but as a living reality. They see this so much so that it has cost many of them their lives. Even in our own country, belief in the resurrected Jesus — and the prophetic call to fo…

Sermon from Sunday, January 8, 2023 | 1 Peter is a letter penned by the Apostle Peter, to an unimportant, marginalized group of people who are spread out across the Roman Empire. But these little outposts of the kingdom are at the beginning stages of upending the global superpower through radical faith and supernatural love. We don’t live in Ancien…

Sermon from Sunday December 18, 2022 | Nothing about God's arrival went as expected, or as it was "supposed" to. But isn't that the story of Advent—God wrecking all our "supposed to's" and continuing to remind us that our expectations around following Jesus are way to low. For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mosaicknox.org…

Sermon from Sunday December 4, 2022 | In a world where many of us have received indifference from others during our times of need—and have showed indifference to others in theirs—we are encouraged that God has intervened, in Jesus, in response to the wild situations we find ourselves in. In Advent, Christ took on flesh and intervened, for us. For m…

Sermon from Sunday November 20, 2022 | Each of us have questions about the Bible, but there is a question underneath all the other ones: Is the story true? As jarring as the Bible is at times, it is even more surprising in the unfolding message of a forgotten word: grace. For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mosaicknox.org…

Sermon from Sunday November 6, 2022 | Hell has become somewhat caricaturized over the past 100 years, but what is the biblical storyline of judgement?What is the surprising, good news of a perfect Judge; and how might that spur us on with hope as we look in the face of evil day after day? For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mos…

Sermon from Sunday October 30, 2022 | The Old Testament is littered with war and violent descriptions of conquest. How do we make sense of this? Is God on a violent war path? The caricatures of God are actually much more comedic than they are accurate, and the patience of God is as surprising as it is sobering. For more information about Mosaic vis…

Zeru and Nick sit down and chat about Nick's story of becoming a disciple of Jesus. It started with men who helped him explore the content of the Bible and systematically learn its themes, which led to both helpful and not-so-helpful habits. However, Nick has encountered God's grace over and again through the realization that "it's okay to just ope…

Today, Zeru and Izzy discuss her journey of seeing the bible as impersonal to the greatest love letter ever written. Izzy shares the excitement she felt when being around others excited about the Bible, which influenced her engagement with the Bible. Hope y'all enjoy!Door Mosaic Knox

Today Wes hosts the Midweek podcast and the guest is Zeru (me). I share my story about growing up in a Ethiopian Pentecostal family that loved the Bible, and about my time in the Southern Baptist community that loved the Bible as well. However, I've had some questions along this journey of a lot of exposure to the Bible.…

Sermon from Sunday October 16, 2022 | The Scriptures are full of insights and stories, informational bits that are interesting and thought-provoking. But if our reading of the text leaves us with greater knowledge, we’re missing the point. A major shift happens when we allow the Holy Spirit to do a work in us while engaging the Scriptures: we go fr…
