Salvation History Pt6: We are in Exile

We are moving through the whole story of the Bible--salvation history. Here I take a look at the story of the exile and where it fits in the Bible.

I didn't know when I laid out this series the way the coronavirus would be impacting our world. But God did. As I studied the exile, I realized that we feel in some ways that we are in exile.

Some Trust in Toilet Paper

This sermon was preached for video on the first week of a cancellation of church due to the Coronavirus. I reflect on the situation and ask where our hope really comes from.

Salvation History Pt4: Don’t Judge Me

When we were young, we read about the judges as heroes. As adults, these stories seem more fitting for an HBO series than a Sunday School lesson. What is the meaning of this dark and violent book, especially in the grand narrative of salvation history?

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...).

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.
