April 10, 2016 — Healing

April 19, 2016 @ 1:09 pm

Acts 3 meets Psalm 23.  The broad topic is healing but I stumble into talking about a little more than that.

1st Thessalonians 1: 1-10 Reacting to External Pressures

April 17, 2016 @ 2:09 pm

This week the primary scripture is not part of the podcast.  The title shows the primary preaching text.  

Two scriptures make up the discussion/proclamation.  One is Acts 17: 1-9 and the other is 1st Thessalonians 1 with a primary emphasis on the elements of 1st Thessalonians that focuses on faith, hope, and love.  Interesting that at both services I didn't record the 1st Thessalonians reading.  Not sure what went on.

April 3, 2016 — Acts 1: 1-14 “Be a Witness”

April 5, 2016 @ 7:27 am

This sermon came together quite late.  I had all the piece parts by Saturday evening, but it had no shape, no contour, no real flow.  Marilyn and I sat down and worked together on this for an hour and this is what came out.  Michelle Starcher, our accompanist, also provided a musical offering that I didn't know about until I got to church, so that element, was woven in late.  God surprises us. is a good link to a bio on the Roman Catholic Priest mentioned in the Sermon.
