Mother's Day 2011 g-163
This Mother’s Day, Pastor Brett takes a break from our study in 1 Corinthians and discusses the story of the mother who asked that her two sons, James and John, be seated at the right and left side of Jesus in the kingdom of Heaven. To some, this act may seem selfish. However, in Matthew 20:20-25, we see Salome’s approach to Jesus, her attitude toward Jesus, her appeal to Jesus, her awareness of Jesus, her acceptance of Jesus and what we can learn from these.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
