We begin a new series entitled “Ordinary People, Extradordinary Moments.” God uses ordinary regular people and leads them to extraordinary moments. Today we begin with a regular guy named Zechariah who experienced real life disappointment yet God does something extraordinary.
Life gets in the way of being thankful. I take some time to discuss the things that prevent us from being thankful this time of year.
Have you ever felt left out or to use a football term… have you ever felt like a “second string” player? Today we look at the story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19 and see how Jesus can change give us something money can’t buy.
This weekend we celebrated “All Saints Sunday.” This is way more than remembering those who have gone before us to heaven. It is “All Saints” and not just “Dearly Departed Saints Day”. Listen in as I talk about the obstacles of seeing yourself as a saint and hear how Jesus feels about those who struggle.
This is my second first Sunday at Community Lutheran Church in Las Vegas. I begin on a holiday weekend: Reformation Sunday. Listen in as I talk about the importance of the Reformation in 2019.
This is my final reminder to Bethel Lutheran Church and my last Sunday with them. The reminder is to be bold and do not compare. Side Note: I will start posting sermons again at the end of the month from Community Lutheran Church in Las Vegas, NV
We are week two of three in a series about the most important things. I am reminding Bethel Lutheran Church of the things they need to hold on to after I am gone. This week I remind them that when all else fails…love.
The next three weeks will be devoted to reminding Bethel of the most important things. Things to hold onto as we move into a new and different futures.
We spend some time looking at an interesing parable of Jesus. This a story of extremes to help make the point that we can be easily distracted from what matters most in life.
Today we look at one of my favorite chapters of the Bible Luke 15. Jesus tells us quite clearly that people far from God matter to Him. Maybe they should matter to us too.
