Out Of Egypt I Have Called My Son

Matthew 2:13-23 It's amazing how quickly we can go from the heights to the depths in our lives. That is what we see happening in Matthew 2 to Joseph and Mary. A group of wise men from the East come and visit them and throw a baby shower that is fit for a king and, indeed, that is who they say this baby is. ...

Faith’s Bitter Foe

According to this sermon, Abraham has much to teach us concerning the life of faith. Despite the millennia that separate us, Abraham's successes and failures, of which there are an ample supply of both, offer surprisingly relevant insights into our struggle to live by faith. His life, much like ours, reflects an on-going battle with fear, faith's archenemy.

Comfort for Manoah’s Kin

God: Our Omnipotent God

The ability to launch into space and catch by hand a satellite weighing much more than an elephant should amaze us all. But as astonishing as that is, it is insignificant compared to the ability of God.

Advent: Meet Mary

God does not function with whistles and sirens. God's strategy was not to blitz Rome, charging through the forum to the senate, with a warrior Messiah on a white stallion. No, as this Christmas sermon reminds us, God chose to come to the womb of a sensitive teenage girl who was willing to grow in her understanding of the things of God, who had a vision, at least partial, of what God was about.
