Making a Way for Hope/Advent part 1

Making a Way for Hope Isaiah 40:1-11 12/3/2017   Although this is the first of four Sundays of Advent, we’re just three weeks from Christmas.  Because of the way the calendar falls this year, the fourth and final Sunday of Advent also happens to be Christmas Eve.  So three weeks from today, we’ll have one

Christ the King Sunday/The Shepherd King

The Shepherd King Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24 11/26/2017   Today is the last Sunday of the Church liturgical year.  You may know that in the Christian tradition, we mark the time a little differently than the secular world.  Rather than beginning January 1st, the Church year begins with the First Sunday of Advent.  It makes sense,

Thanksgiving Worship

Gratitude List Psalm 136 11/19/2017   My family and I moved to Sherman in July 2013, which means that this is our fifth holiday season here.  And I want to tell you that this congregation has given me a new way of identifying the official start of the holidays.  For me these days, the holidays

Unlikely Sources (Children’s Sabbath)

As the Children’s Pastor, I get to go to Summer Camp at Bridgeport for 5 days during the summer with some of our children.  And it’s pretty amazing – and that’s saying something, coming from a person who didn’t do camps as a child!  At Bridgeport, children entering grades 4-6 get to “escape” for a

Getting Specific

Getting Specific 2 Corinthians 9:6-12 10/15/2017                         Will Rogers was onto something when he said, “Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people that they don’t like.”  First Timothy 6:10 tells us that “the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.”

Shiny Gods Part 1 “Heart Check”

Heart Check Exodus 32:1-24 10/8/2017               Winston Churchill famously said, “We make a living by what we get.  We make a life by what we give.”  There’s a fair amount of theology packed into that sentiment.  Theology that’s an excellent starting point as we begin our annual stewardship campaign. Each year, around this time
