June 13: Growing Into the New Creation

Scriptures: Mark 4:26-34; 2 Corinthians 5:6-10, 14-17 I’m not the same person I was twenty years ago. I’m not the same person I was ten years ago. Or five years ago. By God’s grace, I’d like to be able to say that I’m not the same person I was a year ago. And hopefully, I’m not the same person today that I’ll be a year from now. The same is probably true for each of you. It was around 1994/1995,…

May 30: Does the Trinity Matter?

  Scriptures: Isaiah 6:1-8 and John 3:1-17 Raise your hand if you have a solid understanding of how to safely blast a rocket into outer space. Raise your hand if you’v e got a firm grasp on the detailed mechanics of a combustible engine (meaning, you could tear one down and rebuild it without the use of instructions). Who here would be able to explain to the rest of us exactly how the brain constructs what we see out of…

May 23: Jesus Within Us and Around Us

  May 23 Bulletin Scripture: Acts 2:1-21 I have a question for you. It’s not a trick question, but the answer I’m looking for may not be obvious to everyone. If you want to see God’s “face,” what are you supposed to do? Another way of asking the question would be, How does God intend to reveal himself to people who don’t know him? Some might suggest the Scriptures, and that’s certainly one important way God reveals himself, but it’s…

One Reason Why I’m a Christian

  At the conclusion of my June 13 sermon, I encouraged you to be consciously aware of the reasons behind your Christian faith and practice. To that end, I suggested writing out your own answers to questions such as Why am I a Christian? What difference does Jesus make in my life? Why do I ‘go to church’ (worship)? In light of 1 Peter 3:15 – “If someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain…

You’re Right Where You’re Supposed to Be

  I recently sat and talked with a person from our community of faith who’s experiencing a tremendous amount of grief. Because our culture puts a high premium on quick remedies as well as getting on with it, many who are in a place of grief struggle with the sense that they’re supposed to be “working through” their grief. While it’s helpful to bear in mind that there are various ‘stages’ of grief, sometimes knowing that can be a hindrance…

Dying? Says Who?

Maybe you’ve seen the recent headline about the precarious state of the church of today. Three such news captions are “America is Becoming Less Religious” (Washington Post), “Fewer Than Half of Americans Belong to a Church” (Christianity Today), and “In U.S., Decline of Christianity Continues at Rapid Pace” (Pew Research Center). What hit the newsstand is the latest report from the polling giant, Gallup. According to Gallup, for the first time since the late 1930s, fewer than half of Americans…
