Braving the Wilderness

November 12th, 2017

Braving the Wilderness Exodus 16:1-3 November 12, 2017 Last week, we watched as our ancestors in faith were set free from their life as slaves in Egypt. For generations, they had made bricks, day-in and day-out. For generations, they had adjusted to that life. There was food (not good food but enough food—after all, no

Exodus: On That Very Day Exodus 12:40-42 November 5, 2017 At the beginning of our text, we are told that the Israelites were slaves in Egypt for 430 years: “At the end of four hundred and thirty years, on that very day, all the companies of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.”


Remember

October 29th, 2017

Remember Isaiah 46:1-13 October 29, 2-17 So, today we are going to start back in ancient times and work our way forward. We have to start with Bel and Nebo. Our text begins by telling us that, “Bel bows down. Nebo stoops.” Who are Bel and Nebo? Any listener in Isaiah’s day would have known


This Changes Everything!

October 22nd, 2017

This Changes Everything! John 3:1-10 October 22, 2017 This morning, I want to build a foundation for considering our text. In Jesus’ day, Israel had a ruling council which was called the Sanhedrin.

No Excuses

October 14th, 2017

No Excuses Luke 14:15-24 October 15, 2017 Last week, we watched as Jesus did the unthinkable: he touched a leper, an “untouchable.” He broke the law. He violated all sense of common decency. In a culture in which cleanliness was everything, he made himself unclean—deliberately and intentionally. He did this because there was no excuse


Come As You Are

October 7th, 2017

Come As You Are Luke 5:12-16 October 8, 2017   People can be incredibly mean. We need look no farther than the horrors of this week’s news to understand this. It’s Sandy Hook. It’s Virginia Tech. It’s Orlando and the Pulse nightclub. It’s a country music festival in Vegas. Human cruelty shatters whatever else was


Be Transformed

September 30th, 2017

Be Transformed Romans 12:1-2 October 1, 2017 Human beings have an incredible ability to accept and adjust to almost anything. This is both our strength and our weakness. It is hard to figure out when we are coping and when we are stuck. Over the course of years, I grew used to knee pain. I

The Places We Will Go–Together

September 17th, 2017

The Places We Will Go—Together Mark 3:31-35 September 17, 2017 As the earliest Gospel written, there are at least three interesting things about the Gospel of Mark. First, Jesus heals more than he teaches and when he heals someone, he tells them to tell no one. What this suggests is that Jesus was known as


The Places You Will Go

September 10th, 2017

The Places You Will Go Mark 1:16-20 September 10, 2017 When I was a sophomore in high school, I was called up to pitch for the varsity baseball team. This was a very uncomfortable move. I left my peers and the relatively carefree life of being on the j.v. team behind. That was replaced with
