Prayer Beyond Petition Towards a Person

Dear King's Cross Friends,

This Sunday we kicked off our new sermon series called “Considering Prayer: A Pilgrimage Through Psalms, Epistles and Gospels.” It was something that was stirred as we approached our third year anniversary as a church congregation that we as a community have so much to give thanks for. For the way God has grown the church, the depth of community that is centered on conversations on the gospel and also a deep conviction that our faith is to be engaged with a larger Flushing community. Over the last three years, we have seen our Flushing neighbors from different walks...

I was catching up with my friend one day and suddenly came to a point where I said, “It’s difficult going to therapy and facing all these things, but I am proud and happy to be a woman of God.” That was probably the first time saying that specific thought out loud. I started to laugh uncontrollably. It’s similar to when you’re first dating someone and you say, “Yeah, we’re...

A defining moment in my life was finally deciding to go to therapy. I was afraid to admit certain desires I had, such as being married and wanting a family. It all seemed to be the perfect mold of a “Christian life”. I used to think I wasn't meant to get married or have a family; I was going to remain single. But when I was honest with myself, I did have desires of...

Growing up in a Christian family with a dad who’s a pastor- my adolescent life was consumed with doubt . Every night I asked God to save me because I thought, “I sinned today so I must not be a Christian. I don’t feel God. I don’t feel like I love him. I’m not experiencing him. I need to ask Him into my heart again." I’d go through this cycle and this didn't change until...

I was so angry at God during my teen years that I stopped going to church. I basically said “I’m going to do my best to be an agnostic- to believe that there might be a God but he’s unknowable." I was pretty wild in college and a lot had to do with this anger, this rage. I think that was ultimately aimed towards God for not providing me with a "steady Christian experience"...

The blog is coming back (and other things too)

Today marks our actual three year anniversary. On October 14, 2012, a group of young adults from Living Faith Community Church planted a new congregation in Downtown Flushing: King's Cross Church; it has been a very eventful three years. Yet, while we have been serving our community and growing in knowledge and practice of the Gospel, we have not had shared much of that here, on our website.

As we approach pass this three-year milestone, we want to start sharing more of our story here on our blog and we invite you to follow us as we highlight the work the God is doing in and through the lives...
