Enough — Amy Gearhart Rocks It at Hilltop

November 4, 2018 @ 4:11 pm

 

Luke 12: 22 to 34.  The text is from The Message.  (We had flowers for Eugene Peterson.)  Her sermon title is Enough.  

Amy Gearhart is an Elder in the Missouri Conference and we had her speak at Hilltop on Commitment Sunday.  AKA Consecration Sunday.  Amy explains her new position at the Mountain Sky Conference.  I called her the Transition and Culture Czarina

This was our most effective Stewardship campaign in my time at Hilltop, at least in terms of Treasure.  Still work to do in all three of time, talent, and treasure but we are making progress.   

I spoke a little at the start to make some comments on the shootings at the Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Lent Week 2: Abraham, Faith, Covenant and Continuity, February 25, 2018

April 12, 2018 @ 8:20 pm

Text: Romans 4:13-25

On the second Sunday of Lent we examined the biblical story of Abraham. His faith is an example that still calls to us today. From Abraham would come the seed through whom all nations of the world will be blessed. The call and covenant of God with Abraham would have been a story that Jesus would have been familiar with. It is ultimatley a story of God's faithfulness. This faith story provides continuity between the Old and New Testaments. We cannot understand the latter without the former.
