Hope and Desperation, September 2016

god-promiseshopeMorsels & Stories: I talked about the theology we had sung earlier in the hymn “Alleluia! Sing to Jesus.”  Found in Common Praise as hymn 374, you can find the lyrics here at oremus.org.

 

Sermon: Jeremiah does a big and foolish thing, given his situation.  But should we have any other expectation from God’s prophet?

 

The lessons can be found by clicking here.  I worked most closely with Jeremiah 32:1–3a, 6–15.

Holy Cross, 2016

failure-rooted-in-loveSt Peter’s has a mid-week service and have been working toward recording and occasionally posting those sermons.  My mid-week sermons are often shorter and closer to extemporaneous.  This year the Feast of Holy Cross Day fell on a Wednesday.

 

The lessons can be found by clicking here.

You can watch “The West Wing” scene I mention here.

God throws a party, September 2016

partyMorsels & Stories: We spend some time talking about our favourite parts of  Scripture.
Because this was interactive and personal, much of it may not have recorded well.  I’d invite you to ponder the questions yourself in those times.

 

Sermon: It’s all about the party.

 

The lessons for today can be found by clicking here.  I worked most closely with Luke 15:1-10.

The Potter’s Flower Miracles, Sept 2016

miracle of a flowerMorsels & Stories: I talked about one interpretation of “the sacrifice of praise” and mention a favourite CS Lewis quote.

Sermon: I tackle Jeremiah in the potter’s house.  What doesn’t it mean? How might we listen better to my favourite grouchy prophet?

(The picture is something I mention in the sermon.)

The lessons for today can be found by clicking here.  I worked most closely with Jeremiah 18:1–11.
