Jesus’ Family, June 2018

Through the Question, June 3 2018

through the detailsMorsels & Stories: I talked about the differences in the Apostle’s (which we used in Easter) and the Nicene Creed (which we use most of the time).  For this I wrote the Creeds out in two different colours of ink.  That is still up at Church but I’d encourage you to do something similar if you want to see.  I wrote the Nicene Creed out in pencil, wrote over the Apostle’s Creed in one colour, and then finished the rest in another colour.  If you are doing this just for you, it would be easy to underline or highlight one of the parts.

Sermon: The pharisees want to talk about the law.  Jesus, who also loves the law, sees a whole different picture.  How do we learn to see like Jesus?

The lessons can be found by clicking here (link).  I worked most closely with Mark 2:23-3:6.

A Sacred Home, Lent 2018

Home where we are imperfect and lovedEdmonton got a decent amount of snow between Friday night and Sunday morning so our worship was a bit more intimate than normal.  Instead of our usual Morsels & Stories we started with a really interactive section.  I did my best to make sure the gist of the conversation got caught by the mic.  Thank you for your patience.

Sermon: Jesus has deep passion for God’s home.  What does home mean to us?  What does this mean for us?

The lessons for today can be found by clicking here.  I worked most closely with John 2: 13-22.
