Sermons from September 2016
A sermon on 1 Timothy 6:6-19. When you come to church, do you feel yourself hearing Christianese rather than truth?
A sermon on Jeremiah 8:18-9:1. Do you mourn the state of your community and our world? Do you ever look around and say, “it shouldn’t have to be like that”? Sometimes there is something to be done, but every once in awhile, we just need to mourn.
A sermon on Luke 15:1-10. Our reading has us think about lost sheep and lost coins. But today leads us to consider lost sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers– specifically those that were lost 15 years ago today at the twin towers, the Pentagon, and a field just north of Shanksville, PA.
Jesus’ mission to bring and embody the reign of God on earth means living out God’s will with complete self-giving abandon. You cannot have the kingdom without the cross.
