Sermon Title: “Testing and Sacrifice”
Synopsis: This is perhaps the most difficult section of Scripture when God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac. This passage is a foreshadowing of Jesus’ death and resurrection. This passage causes us to wrestle with the trials of life. The passage causes us to wrestle with the nature of our God. Let us be praying for insight and peace as we dive into this difficult text.
November 6th – 25th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Reading: Genesis 25:21-28, Genesis 25:29-34, Genesis 27:1-45
Sermon Title: “Family Craziness”
Synopsis: When we reflect on our family interactions over the years, we probably surprise ourselves with some of the ridiculous choices we made. Well, our family craziness probably pales in comparison to that of Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Esau. How do we grow in awareness of our participation in the family craziness, both at home and at church?
November 13th – 26th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Reading: Psalm 17:1-7, 15, Genesis 32:3-21, Genesis 32:22-32, 33:8-11
Sermon Title: “Wrestling with God”
Synopsis: Jacob had to flee from his home because his brother sought to kill him. Years later Jacob wants to return home, to be reunited with his brother. Before healing comes to that brotherly relationship Jacob spends a night wrestling with God. This is a powerful and beautiful image as we reflect on what must happen inside of us for reconciliation to happen in our broken relationships. May we be people willing to do such wrestling.
November 20th – Christ the King Sunday
Scripture Reading: Luke 1:1-4, Mark 8:34-38, Romans 1:1-17
Sermon Title: “Gospel”
Synopsis: Today we begin a glorious journey through the Gospel of Luke. But what is a Gospel? What is meant by that word Gospel? Are we even interested in the Gospel? Do we have a need for a Gospel? As we reflect on Christ as our King, what does it mean to open our hearts to the Gospel?
November 27th – 1st Sunday of Advent
Scripture Reading: Psalm 25:1-10, Luke 1:5-20, Luke 1:21-25
Sermon Title: “Zechariah and Gabriel”
Synopsis: One of the great gifts of working our way through a book of scripture is that we get to be nourished by the whole story, often parts that rarely get read. Today we consider the story of Zachariah and Gabriel, a priest and an angel. Gabriel has come to Zechariah in response to his prayer. Zechariah and his wife have been praying for a child, little did they know how their lives would be transformed by that prayer. As you read this wonderful story what aspects touch your heart?
