Your Faith Has Saved You

Sermon on Luke 17:11-19 for Pentecost 18 (Pr 23), October 10 & 13, 2019 Language has changed. And one word—one very important word has developed a very sloppy and hard-to-define meaning. That word is faith. In our time, faith has come to mean many things. Most of the time it seems that having faith or believing…

Money!

Sermon on Luke 16:1–13 (also references to 1 Timothy 6:6-8) Pr. 20, September 19 & 22, 2019 Money is a sensitive subject in the church for a couple reasons. There are some preachers that talk about money constantly. There used to be one who was on TV every day and he had one text he preached…

Sermon on Luke 10:38-42 for the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, (Pr 11) July 18 & 21, 2019 We don’t realize what a task preparing food was in ancient times. We saw that in both the First Reading and the Gospel. Abraham and Sarah did not have a breadbox with loaves of Wonder Bread. If you wanted bread,…

What Does It Mean that Jesus Is Savior?

Sermon on Luke 8:26-39 for the Second Sunday after Pentecost (Pr 7), June 20 & 23, 2019 Today’s Gospel was kind of wild, wasn’t it? A demon possessed man, living in the tombs, naked and shouting. It also made for a wild bulletin cover picture!  In Madagascar, there is a Lutheran church body that does exorcism as part…
