Jesus Prom Small Group Study

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Wouldn’t it make sense that if we claim we want to be like Jesus, we would want to do what He did?  To LOVE as He loved, BE with others as He was with them, SEE with His eyes, DANCE with His joy, GIVE like He gave, and REMEMBER like He remembered?  In this six [...]

Lent 2015

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

Lent is a season of preparation that many who practice a less liturgical form of worship have never celebrated.  I had not really considered it before coming to New England.  It has been meaningful for me this year, to focus on the anticipated sacrifice of Christ, spoken of by our Savior in the Gospels.

GALATIANS

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

This is a survey of Galatians, not a verse by verse exposition.  One sermon for each chapter except 3, due to a recording glitch that Sunday.  Galatians speaks of the danger of legalism, the clarity of the gospel, and the importance of love in all relationships. DOWNLOADS HERE

DEEP and WIDE

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

According to the author of this book, Andy Stanley, “This is a book about creating churches that unchurched men, women, and children love to attend.“ I am praying that God uses Deep and Wide to help the church see how we may be causing unchurched people to stay away, or to be put off by [...]

HOPE

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

When we face the tough things in life, we need hope to make it through.  This summer my family faced the terminal illness and eventual death of my father.  I love my parents, mom and dad.  Dad was home with help from hospice for 8 weeks and then he died.  I enjoyed two weeks with [...]

Mother’s Day

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Jessie shared a great sermon for Mother’s Day (she is my wife).  Her 4 daughters surprised her by being present for church that Sunday.  Then we shared a church brunch together.  Jared and Rebecca came later on Sunday afternoon.  Here is a photo we snapped of Jessie with all our children (and me).

Relationships

Monday, May 5th, 2014

People most likely to suffer alone are those who have severed their relational connections.  I hope you are looking for a biblical perspective on establishing priorities and maintaining your relational connections.  If you are, start listening.

Christ is Risen

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

You can believe or follow anyone.  It makes sense to me to believe and follow the man who died and came back from the dead.  No one ever spoke love like him, lived service like him, died voluntarily like him, or arose victoriously from the dead like him. We are celebrating Easter this Sunday.  We [...]

Songs of Suffering

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

The subject of suffering came up during Men’s Group recently.  We need to understand the subject and how it fits into our belief system. My own theology of suffering grew out of my heavy exposure to southern gospel music.  Some of the songs that came to mind seemed to be worthy of a sermon, and [...]
