September 6 – 15th Sunday after Pentecost – Elder Karen Nielsen Preaching Scripture Reading: Psalm 125, James 2:1-7, James 2:8-13
Sermon Title: “Favoritism = Judging”
Synopsis: Remember calling someone a “Teacher’s Pet”? Or perhaps you were “The Teacher’s Pet”? In a classroom when a teacher has a favorite student what is the impact on the rest of the students? How has favoritism been a part of your own family system? What was the impact on your family? James reminds us that favoritism is a form of judging, which as we know is God’s job not ours. Where in your life do you tend to play favorites?
September 13 – 16th Sunday after Pentecost - Communion
Scripture Reading: Psalm 8, James 2:14-17, James 2:18-26
Sermon Title: “Faith and Works”
Synopsis: James asks an interesting question as he discusses the connection between faith and works. He asks, “Is God one?” Most of us would say, “Yes, God is one.” In the same way, James suggests that faith and works are one, they are two sides of the same coin; we cannot have one without the other. How do you understand the connection between faith and works and how does it play out in your own life journey?
September 20 – 17th Sunday after Pentecost – Celebrating Our Life Together
LAST SUNDAY ON SUMMER SCHEDULE
September 27 – 18th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Reading: Psalm 39:1-3, 12-13, James 3:1-5a, James 3:5b-12
Sermon Title: “Dangerous Tongues”
Synopsis: “Sticks and stones my break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Do you believe that statement of wisdom? Of course it is true that sticks and stones can physically damage our bodies, while technically words cannot, but how often do words hurt us? In this passage James challenges us to consider the power of the tongue to do damage. What an important truth to grapple with as we live in community.
