I Believe in the Holy Spirit

[Our Summer Sermon Series this year provides us a unique opportunity to look at the great celebrations of the Christian Church with new eyes. We can take a little different perspective on the events because we’re not so caught up in them all. We’ve had Christmas in June and Easter in July… Today brings another look at Pentecost… the arrival of the Holy Spirit. This is not the normal story of the Holy Spirit that we use from the book…

And on the Third Day

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went…
Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, Our Lord

As part four of our continuing Summer Sermon Series on the Apostle’s Creed, today you’ll get some real meat and potatoes; something of substance to work with. I have been trying to decide how best to approach ‘Jesus Christ, His Only Son, Our Lord’- which could surely cover a lot of territory. I’ll begin with a question for all of us today.

After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias; and he showed himself in this way.

When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Now standing…

Every Eye Shall See Him

Revelation 1:4b-8 Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood, and made us to be a kingdom, priests serving his God and Father, to him be…
