Christmas Eve sermon, a look at the birth of Christ through the eyes of the shepherds.
Do we every find ourselves heartbroken over the bad things that we do and that happen in this world? We can be sure that God weeps even more over sin than we do because God loves us and knows the heart that our sin brings. Thankfully His love is so deep that He sent His Son to the cross to defeat sin and every tear that has ever been shed as a result of it. Consider our Savior's incredible love through the sound of "Weeping Women" as part of our "Sounds of the Passion" Lenten series.
The 3 hardest words to say... No, it's not what you think. People say "I love you" all the time - some mean it, some don't. The three hardest words for us sinners to say is "I need help", whether we are speaking to others or speaking to God. We hate the taste of those words in our mouth, so we say them too seldom as we try to fix our own lives. What if God puts you in a place where you CAN'T help yourself? What if you can't survive without someone coming to your rescue? And what if just anyone won't do? This weekend we enter into the final phase of our "Look Into It" series as we study the first of two examples of Jesus as the Son of David. Our lesson is from Luke 18:35-43.
Our mid-week Lenten series "Sounds of the Passion" continues with the sounds of Hateful Hollers.
