Sermon on Genesis 18:9-15; 21:1-7
Who Would’ve Said?, The Reverend David J. Powers
Through this series, we will explore how to make a fresh start: in friendships and in family, at school and at work, even in our lives of faith. How does the Spirit of God enable us to begin again? How does our faith inspire hope and possibility in the future?
During Lent, we will prepare ourselves to live into the paschal mystery by exploring five parables that Jesus shared in the days leading up to his crucifixion. Jesus’ favorite teaching method will guide our learning as we prepare to proclaim the promise of resurrection.
This Advent worship series will focus on some of the overlooked and under-appreciated figures of the story of the Incarnation. As we wait and prepare, we’re going to focus on some of the folks who don’t get the attention that they deserve. Each of these “minor characters,” as we’re calling them, have something to teach us. Zechariah, Elizabeth, the angels, the shepherds, and the inn keeper are here to teach us about how it is that we actually prepare for the Incarnation of God.
Every so often, it is important for people of faith to pause and ask, “why do we do what we do?” Our series – Finding Our Why – will allow us, lifelong church members as well as those new to the faith, the opportunity to examine some fundamental practices of Christianity. In our study, we hope to both rediscover the Biblical roots of the Church and reveal that which compels our faith and practice today.
Being the Body is a series inspired by a St. Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582) quote that mentions, “Christ has no body now on earth but yours.” We will spend the summer discussing and breaking down what it means for us to be Christ’s lungs, eyes, ears, hands, feet, tongue, and heart.
