Sermons from August 2019
We finish our 3-part series “Have Faith,” with the sermon “When Waiting is Hard” from Luke 14: 1, 7-14. Jesus has been invited to a dinner party by a “higher up” religious leader. When many of the guests raced to grab the best seats at the table, Jesus calls them out. Those “higher ups” were acting selfish and greedy, believing themselves to be of utmost importance. ……..
This Sunday we will explore Luke 13: 10-17 and discuss what it means to Have Faith: In the Face of Opposition. We will gather around the Table of Christ for Holy Communion .
