Intro I have a confession to make. I ran away from home once. Looking back, it was one of the dumbest things I have ever done. I was in eighth grade, I think. I blame the hormones. A boy was becoming a man, or so he thought. It all started when I decided to cut my own hair. The mushroom hairstyle was…

A Summer in the Psalms
Psalm 117 is the shortest of the Psalms, shortest chapter in the Scriptures, YET… it expresses a TRUTH that is powerful and holds great implication and impact regardless of generation, people group, or culture you come from! Praise the Lord , all nations; Laud Him, all peoples! For His lovingkindness…
The Gospel of Luke
"The King is coming" is the urgent message for the world - but the king comes offering peace; while the movement announcing his coming begins with only a few, many will respond as it multiplies. Those who reject it have been warned - they are rejecting God himself. Rejoice: Jesus reveals God and offers peace with him to the weak not the wise.

The Greeley Tribune faith columnist on July 10, 2010 answered, “An honest reading of the Bible can only lead us to the conclusion that the Bible is uncertain on the significance of Jesus death.” Since he can’t find a biblical…

The Gospel of Luke
The blessed life is an uncomfortable one: living in dependence on God, longing for restoration, speaking for Jesus and yet rejected. It's uncomfortable but in the end it's worth it.
The Call, The Vision, The Mission The church’s vision is what the church will look like in the next five to ten years of its life as it accomplishes the mission. A Vision Statement, is not a statement describing what a certain ministry is now, but rather a Vision Statement asserts what those in the ministry…
The Gospel of Luke
We all long for greatness, for significance. Often we pursue that through competition: pulling others down or pushing ourselves up. Jesus shows us true greatness through his obedience all the way to the cross. He gives each of his followers significance by sending us with that nmessage.

Jesus Christ came to reveal God, to announce the coming of God’s kingdom and to redeem a fallen humanity through his death on the cross. Though he came first to the Jews, the scope of Christ’s mission includes the whole human race and continues through the Spirit-empowered witness of the church.
Prayer — SIS Why are we here? Why do we exist? What is our purpose? You haven’t just thought about that question, you’ve felt that question? That’s one of those questions that you don’t just think about, you feel it. You feel its weight bearing down on you. Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing?…
What a great day to be together. I’m excited and I hope you are as well. We’re here for a reason, and that is… well, it’s sort of like half-time, and I’m hoping that I might be able to help get you excited about our potential future with God as our leader. Since it’s reformation Sunday, I thought I would…

Advent 2C: Uses RCL lectionary texts. Connects Isaiah/Malachi/John the Baptist "preparing the way" and "making the paths straight" with the second coming (Advent) of Christ and the mission of the Church. Meant as a 10-minute Eucharistic sermon.
The Gospel of Luke
Frustrated fishing? Fishermen in the news this week with the so-called scallop wars! Like star wars only more wibbly. Who here’s ever been fishing? Who’s ever actually caught anything? [My first fishing experience: Scotland; fishing from a motorboat; like they were jumping onto the hooks] But that’s…
If we think bad things happen to bad people, then when bad things happen to us, we will carry deep shame and shove the skeleton in the closet, instead of letting it out to let the brothers and sisters share the burden. Too many skeletons in the closet will make our life stink and cripple our spiritual growth. Let's see what Jesus teaches us how to treat tragedies and what to focus on in Luke 13:1-9.
When Christians think about the Great Commission they think about Matt 28:18-20. But there are actually five other passages where Jesus commissions us. When we examine each of these six passages we come away with a far more detailed and complete idea of our mission in this world. We find six very important ideas: Jesus is The Master Builder, Jesus is The Model, The Magnitude is significant, Jesus gives The Method, Jesus gives The Message, and the Holy Spirit provides The Means.
