Jesus Is the Lord of Light

Sermon on John 9:1-7, 13-17, 34-39 for Lent 4, March 22, 2020 After all matter was created, darkness still covered all.

A sermon based on Genesis 12:1-8 for the 2nd Sunday of Lent, March 8, 2020. I can remember when my kids were younger packing up for trips. We lived down in Texas with two kids and then another came as well. My family was in Oshkosh and Andrea’s family lived outside of Lansing, MI. When…

How Do I Recognize Temptation? Sermon on Genesis 3:1-15 and Matthew 4:1-11 for Lent 1,A, March 1, 2020 Temptation is something that is both complex and simple.

The Lord is Our Light, Salvation and Stronghold

Sermon on Psalm 27 for Epiphany 3, A, January 26, 2020 We remember King David as a person who had many ups and downs—I would say extreme ups and downs compared with our lives. He was a shepherd boy, out in the field, tending his flock. Then he killed the giant Goliath, and everyone shouted…

We Will Not Fall!

A sermon based on Colossians 2:6-15, for the 2nd Sunday after the Epiphany, January 16/19, 2020. Signs all around the perimeter give warnings.
