We take a look at Bethel’s 2019 theme verse on love today. This has huge theological implications for us as Christians. This was brought home to us in the decisions made at the Methodist Church conference last week. Click here for the notes: https://benbergren.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Theme-Verse-2019.pdf
We finish the sermon series on Daniel in chapter 6. The most famous of all the stories: Daniel and the Lion’s Den. Find out what kind of lion’s dens there are in our lives.
We meet a new king this morning in the story of Daniel! Is it an improvement? Not so much. Yet another important life lesson is learned… learning from others.
We continue on in the book of Daniel and the king has a nother dream that comes to pass. Some of the most important lessons of leadership are contained in this chapter.
Continuing on in Daniel, we hear how the king of Babylon builds a golden statue that everyone is commanded to worship… or else. There is much to learn from Daniel’s friends and even Nebuchadnezzar. Listen in!
We move on to the 2nd chapter of Daniel and he quickly discover his next challenge. He is asked to do the impossible. His life depends upon how he responds. There is much to learn from this terrifying story!
We begin a new sermon series on the life of Daniel. We will spend the next 6 weeks looking at the Old Testament prophet. He is truly unshakable. We will learn how to be unshakable too. We begin with Daniel being pressured to conform and teaches us something about how to respond in those situations.
Today we heard the story of Jesus’ baptism. Why is baptism so important? We take the time to explore the importance of this sacrament and how it is “tied” to Jesus. I had the most moving encounter that brought this truth home to me this past week.
We in the church celebrate this thing called Epiphany right after Christmas. Listen in as I describe what an epiphany is and how it can change your life.
We are still in the season of Christmas and we hear two stories about children in the Bible. These stories and stories like them point to a larger reality. Also the descriptions of Samuel and Jesus help us move forward in 2019.
