Sermon Title: “You Are Chosen”
Synopsis: Many of us survived that dreaded playground experience of being chosen last, which really was like not being chosen at all. In this amazing passage Jesus reminds us that God has chosen us. Not only are we chosen but God wants to work through us. God chooses us to be God’s holy instruments. So what does it mean for us in terms of how we think about ourselves and our lives when we realize who we are: “God’s chosen people”?
September 28 – 16th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Reading: Romans 8:22-27, John 15:18-25, John 15:26-16:4a
Sermon Title: “Hated but not Stumbling”
Synopsis: Jesus tells us that the world will hate us. He warns of this so that we will not stumble. The problem of course is that we don’t want the world to hate us that seems problematic at best. First of all, can we understand why the world would hate us if we follow the ways of Jesus? Then can we begin to see how being hated by the world is a positive attribute rather than a negative one? This is a huge step of transformation. Thankfully we have each other for the journey.
