The holidays simply did not go as I had planned. We had dreamed of a great family gathering. Only one year earlier we had announced our engagement. Mary’s mother was so excited. She couldn’t wait to tell all her friends. Sure, I was only a carpenter. But that didn’t matter. She knew I LOVED Mary and…

Sermon on the Mount (SOTM)
Pastor Chuck Wilson • Lower Lights Church • Sermon • • 161 views • 42:28
Pastor Chuck starts a new sermon series about the “Sermon on the Mount”. He describes how Jesus uses “The Beatitudes” help to us redefine what God wants us to admire in the world. Pastor Chuck provides a unique concept for us to use the Beatitudes as “not the attitudes we should have, but the attitudes we should be.” This week, Pastor Chuck’s topic is “Blessed are the Poor in Spirit.” Pastor Chuck describes how being “blessed” is a continuous spiritual condition of spiritual prosperity (being rich in spirit), contentment, and satisfaction in your life, not a physical feeling or state of physical material possession. Pastor Chuck will explain “one who is ‘poor in spirit’ has humbly recognized they have a deep need for God because they know they lack His Holiness and have a need for His forgiveness, grace, and mercy, and need Him as a Savior.” Pastor Chuck encourages us to become more aware of our desperate everyday need for God and to invite Him into our lives more every day.

What Child is This?
Intro This Christmas Season we have been asking the question, “What Child is This?” We celebrate the birth of Jesus, but why? Sometimes we get so familiar with things, it loses its appeal. It just doesn’t seem so special anymore… Like last year’s Christmas presents. This year, we are trying to look afresh…

Joseph set a wonderful religious example for all fathers of children. Joseph and Mary were not selected by chance, God knew they would be loving and caring parents for the baby Jesus. Of all the men and women who would ever live, Joseph and Mary was God’s choice. May we all learn from the example they set before us!
