A sermon on Isaiah 62:10-12 for Christmas Day, December 25, 2020. All the preparations have been made.

Sermon on Mark 1:1-8 for Advent 2, B, December 3, 4 & 6, 2020 There are some people mentioned in the Bible who only get a verse or two. We are told very little about them—that makes them even more interesting. An Old Testament example would be Enoch. “[He lived] 365 years. Enoch walked with…

Rejoice, Dear Christian!

A sermon in Philippians 4:6-20 for Thanksgiving, November 25/26, 2020.

Debates rage on about the election results, although more and more of…

The professor in introducing us to the basics of preaching talked about the importance of the pericope, the lessons picked out for each Sunday.
