Can These Bones Live 3-29-20

Today’s sermon is taken from Ezekiel 37:1-14. This is Ezekiel’s vision of the Valley of the Dry Bones.  Through this passage we are reminded of God’s promises that we will not be left in the place of separation and death and hopelessness.

Who To Blame? 3-22-20

Here’s the sermon for the 4th Sunday of Lent, based on John 9:1-41. Jesus encounters and heals a man born blind, then promptly disappears while the man endures ongoing controversy.

4 or 5 Moments 3-8-20

Today’s sermon is based on Genesis 12:1-4a. God calls Abram (later known as Abraham) out of the familiar and safe into the unknown of God’s ultimate promise. Likewise, we are called to believe in God’s promises made real for us in Christ, as the action has already been accomplished on our behalf by God.

Prove It 3-1-20

In this sermon, based on Matthew 4:1-11, we explore the temptation of Jesus. This is always the featured story for the first Sunday of Lent. The devil, or Satan, or the Tempter…or more specifically “The Slanderer” attempts to get Jesus to question his identity as Son of God and “prove it.”  We can learn a lot from Jesus’ response to this time of temptation.

The sermon was preached extemporaneously, so there is no text to read, but you can listen to the audio of the sermon here:
