The Moody Church online in downtown Chicago. Worship services and weekly programming.

It’s Mother’s Day, and on this happy occasion, I thought I’d share a little anecdote that relates to both my Mom and The Moody Church. Some of you know that my Mom attended Moody Bible Institute in the mid-70s, and she sang in the Moody Chorale as well. She’s always had a deep love for Chicago. … [Read More…] May 12, 2024

Have you ever noticed that the heroes we most admire—in the books we read and in the films we watch—always combine the paradoxical traits of grit and grace? They are tough and tender. They possess might and meekness. They have extraordinary strength and exceptional sensitivity.   The paradox of those traits is important. It’s easy … [Read More…] May 5, 2024

Well, I missed it again. The grass turned green this week. I noticed it had happened when I took my Wednesday morning bike ride. The luscious green lawn along the lakefront was bright and beautiful. Tuesday, the grass had been dingy and dormant. But by Wednesday it had turned brilliantly green. Each year I hope … [Read More…] April 28, 2024

In light of the enormous problems facing our city, nation, and world, I want to invite you to join me in a Day of Prayer and Fasting on Wednesday, April 24.   As you know, when temperatures rise in Chicago, so does the violence. We want to lift up our great city to the Lord, … [Read More…] April 21, 2024

As a kid growing up in church, I was so close to the Gospel that I missed it for many years. Being a firstborn with a leaning toward people-pleasing, my natural inclination was toward performance. So at church, that meant bringing my Bible each week, attending Sunday school, memorizing verses, and adopting socially acceptable behaviors. … [Read More…] April 14, 2024

Today we begin a new chapter in our series through the Gospel of Luke. The question front and center is: “Who is this Jesus?” The crowds think He’s a great prophet, others describe Him as a brilliant rabbi, and as we’ll see this week, John the Baptist isn’t quite sure who Jesus is anymore. Who … [Read More…] April 7, 2024

It’s Resurrection Sunday! This is the day we get our lives back. Two thousand years ago, the crucified Jesus walked out of the grave— and the world has never been the same. Jesus has a death-defying life, and He wields His resurrection power on behalf of His people. When Jesus draws near, everything changes.   … [Read More…] March 31, 2024

Growing up, my family prepared for Easter with daily readings, journeying with Jesus in His final and most glorious of days. It was a meaningful time to pause and remember what Holy Week is all about. Perhaps you and your family would like to read along in a similar fashion this year.   Anointing of … [Read More…] March 24, 2024

When my kids came home with their Awana derby-making kits a little over a month ago, I knew I was in trouble. You see, when we came to Chicago four years ago, we moved from the suburbs to the city, which meant no basement or garage. So I sold off almost all my tools and … [Read More…] March 17, 2024
