Ever Wonder What God Wants From You?

Sermon January 30, 2011, on Micah 6:1-8.  God was frustrated with the Israelites.  They seemed to be frustrated at God.  They weren't getting it.  What does God really want anyway?

Article referenced in my sermon this morning.
Egyptian Muslims Protect Coptic Community with Their Bodies
This article was found on a Jewish Rabbi's blog about Muslim people protecting our Christian brothers and sisters.  Amen.

Same Mind, Same Purpose

Sermon, January 23, 2011, on the text 1 Corinthians 1:10-18.  How can we be so diverse and even celebrate our diversity and still be of one mind, one purpose?  It does seem like foolishness to some.

The response to the sermon is a "Litany of What We Can Agree On."  The audio for the congregational response is not good, but the response is but we can love.

Held In Tension

Sermon January 16, 2011 on the Scripture text Isaiah 49:1-7.  Do you feel the strain of tension on your life?  Maybe it is because you are struggling with God.  Does everything you do glorify God?

The Memory of Water

Sermon January 9, 2011 on Matthew 3:13-17 and Acts 10:34-43.  As part of our service, we reaffirmed our baptismal covenant.  In light of the shooting in Tucson, AZ, we discussed what it really means to be baptized in the manner of Jesus, and what is asked of us as disciples of Christ.  Remember your baptism and be thankful.

The Light Continues to Lead Us

Sermon January 2, 2011, on Isaiah 60:1-6 and Matthew 2:1-12.  In spite of coming into contact with the light that was the Christ, not all people were changed.  The visitors from the east were changed.  Herod hearing that the prophecy had been fulfilled in his time, something that should bring joy, was not.  We see this throughout Jesus' life.  Some were transformed by their contact with the Christ.  Others were not.  Are you?
