March 13, 2011 sermon

We have entered Lent, it is a time that is set aside for self examination, repentance, reconciliation and restoration. And on this first Sunday of Lent, we hear the readings where Jesus is tempted, Adam and Eve are tempted and sin, and Paul tells the Romans that sin is death. It is a good thing that the Psalm tells us that we can be forgiven of our sins, otherwise this could be a real downer. read the rest of the sermon please click HERE...

February 13, 2011 sermon

The Corinthians self-image was of a spiritually mature congregation, endowed with all the spiritual gifts they needed, well taught and self-sufficient. In fact they were quite similar to some churches today. They thought their learning and their experience of the gifts of God made them better than others. But as Paul looks at them he says Mature? I think not! Spiritual? No! Not spiritual. read the rest of the sermon please click HERE...

Children's Object Sermon, 1/30/2011

Today's Gospel is from Matthew, and focuses on the Beatitudes.  All this begs the question:  "What do you want to B like?"

Jesus gives us an opportunity to show this to others daily.   When we have the choice to interact with others, we may B kind or we may B judgemental.  We may B stewards of the resources God gives us to use, or we may B greedy, using more than our fair share.

God doesn't expect us to B perfect, but he expects us to model to others the Love Christ shows us.   Be with these children, Lord, and help them show the best of themselves to others.  Amen.

In 1961, one of the abiding symbols of the Cold War and Communism went up between East and West Germany. On November 9, 1989, that symbol came down. I remember watching TV news reports as people celebrated on top of the wall and how they took sledgehammers to break the wall down by themselves. I also remember reading an article about the fall of the Berlin Wall written by a World Methodist Council representative, it quoted a sign that the author saw the day after the wall came down, it read, 'Not the bear, not the lion, not the tiger, but the Lamb; the Lamb wins! read the rest of the sermon please click HERE...

January 2, 2011 sermon

Sometimes,we take the long way home, just to enjoy the scenery and the companionship. Christmas is about a lot of things, but it is at least about getting back home. We sing about it: “I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams. read the rest of the sermon please click HERE...

December 19, 2010 sermon

What we have heard here in today's Gospel is Joseph’s story. The struggle of a good and righteous man, the struggle to come to terms with the fact his fiance is pregnant and that he is not the Father. read the rest of this sermon, please click here
