Sermon

We Come in Repentance

A sermon on Luke 13:1-9 for the 3rd Sunday in Lent, March 24, 2019. It is time for us to go back to school for a little bit. I have a science question to ask you. What is Newton’s 3rd law of motion? You probably did not think that this would ever come up in…

No One Can Resist God’s Plan; No One Should Resist God’s Grace

Sermon on Luke 13:31-35 for the Second Sunday in Lent, March 17, 2019 In the Lord’s Prayer, we say “your kingdom come,” and “your will be done.” There are two angles on both of those petitions. First, if God’s kingdom is where God rules, then God’s kingdom is everything, right? There’s nothing beyond his control. And if…

Take Him Away!

A sermon on John 19:14-18 for Lenten Midweek worship service. The shrieks could be heard from down the hallway. Audible gasps from the gallery filled the air.

The Messenger Brings Hope

A sermon on Isaiah 61:1-6 for the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany, January 24/27, 2019. Ed had been here before. It seemed like the new normal for his life. Ed would look across the desk. A doctor sat opposite him going over the file before them. For a moment the silence was deafening. Ed and his…

Beyond Imagination!

Sermon on Ephesians 3:14-21 for 2nd Sunday after Epiphany, January 20, 2019   A concern among child psychologists and probably teachers, and maybe parents today is that children aren’t allowed or forced to use their IMAGINATIONS.  They don’t seem to read like children used to.  They don’t seem to be shooed outside by Mom and…

See God’s Kindness and Love!

Sermon on Titus 3:4–7 for the Baptism of Our Lord, C, January 10 & 13, 2019 In Catechism class, we teach the kids about the attributes of God. Maybe you remember some of them.

The Epiphany Message Lives On

A sermon based on Acts 13:46-49 for Epiphany Sunday, January 3/6, 2019.
