There is no doubt that we are called to help others live unbound lives, free from the demons which limit them, but we must not be so arrogant or blind as to think that we have no such demons in our lives.
A sermon based on Mark 1:14-20.
WHY did Jesus ask them to follow? To create community. A community that follows - is on the move, not stagnate. In a world of “spiritual but not religious,” in a world where so many consider themselves Christian, but not “church-goers,” I can think of few things more important than creating a genuine community that does not allow the expectations of the Institutionalized Church to bog us down and cause us to lose focus on the One we follow. Because when we do it, it will change everything.
A sermon based on 1 Samuel 3:1-20 and on the occasion of Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday.
"You see, God has plans for you. God has told you what is right, to seek justice, to practice kindness and to walk humbly with God. That – that is your prophetic calling. That – that is the discipline of the priesthood of royal believers. That – that is God calling out to you in the dark night of oppression, discrimination and marginalization which still happens in our great nation.
A New Year's Day message based on Colossians 3:12-17.
After the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future have each paid Ebeneezer Scrooge a visit, Scrooge makes this vow, “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year." In moving from Christmas, which we celebrated last Sunday, to New Year's this Sunday, I think that Scrooges' pledge is very apropos for us to consider today.
