Salvation History Pt1: How Bad is it?

Sermon-Salvation-History.jpg

I am kicking off a sermon series that will go 10 weeks (with a few gaps) telling the large story of the Bible through some of the epochs of the story. Here, I develop the problem of sin and how bad it is, so that we look through the rest of the Bible at how God will fix this problem.

In this sermon, I flowed right into communion. Each person came forward, saw themselves in several mirrors with words of the fall written over them (unloveable, worthless, sinner, ugly, broken...). Then they took communion and came to another set of mirrors with other words (holy, forgiven, loved, valuable, precious...).

Catching the Spirit: Week 3- Life in the Spirit

holyspiritwindo.jpg

In this sermon, I talk about what it means to walk in the Spirit. If you are not producing fruit, then there is something blocking and/or you are not walking.  I reflect on my experience with the Holy Spirit, then I talk about spiritual gifts.

Catching the Spirit: Week 1- Understanding the Trinity

Trinity_Carving.jpg

I get a lot of questions about the Trinity and specifically about the Holy Spirit, so I am taking three weeks to give a crash course. In this first sermon, I develop the Trinity not as a theological construct but as a means for experiencing and relating to God. I use a picture of this carving, coming from the Cartmel Priory.

3 Wise Men and 3 Unwise Men

star-bethlehem.jpg

The three wise men saw the star, interpreted it, pursued it, and found and worshipped the baby Jesus. But some other men were less wise. I call them the 3 unwise me who, like the chief priests and scribes that identified Bethlehem and did not go and see for themselves, missed their moment. There are stars on our horizons. How do we make sure we wisely see, interpret, and follow them.

Christmas Christians

In this sermon after Christmas, I talk about the implications of Christmas. I first talk about the theology of the incarnation, but then I turn much more practical to talk about what it means for us to be incarnational Christians.

Christmas Road Trip: Jerusalem

This year, for Advent, we are taking a little road trip. We are going to go to Nazareth, Jerusalem, Egypt, and Bethlehem. We are particularly interested in what these places add to the story of the birth of Jesus. In this sermon, we visit Jerusalem, the city with so much history and meaning that the birth of Jesus almost had to relate to it.

Christmas Road Trip: Nazareth

This year, for Advent, we are taking a little road trip. We are going to go to Nazareth, Jerusalem, Egypt, and Bethlehem. We are particularly interested in what these places add to the story of the birth of Jesus. In this sermon, we visit Nazareth, which is most notable for how un-notable it is.

The Story of God’s Faithfulness

great_is_they.jpg

This sermon I gave while the confirmation class was leading the service and I let them make suggestions for my sermon. We had been working at telling the big story of the Bible. They have to do it in 7-8 minutes. In this sermon, I tell the story of the Bible chronologically in 12 minutes, and talk about why knowing the big story of the Bible is important.
