Death that leads to life, Sept 2018

Jesus's death leads to new life.Morsels & Stories: This morning we read from Proverbs 31, which is traditionally sung by Jewish husbands to their wives as praise.  As the Church is often talked about as the Bride of Christ, what similar song would Jesus sing to us?

Sermon: Jesus talks about his death.  So we do too because that is the great source of our hope.

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.
