Adent 2: Proclaim the Good News Because God’s Word Endures Forever

December 14, 2015 @ 8:09 pm

I relied this week a great deal on Working Preacher/Narrative Lectionary help.  The idea in this Isaiah 40: 1-11 on where the quotation marks are comes from them.  This is another call routine.  Here (the) Second Isaiah is saying I can't preach because the people are like grass and will wither.  And God says ... do it anyway.

June 21, 2015 — 9:00 Service — Father’s Day and Emanuel AME

June 21, 2015 @ 11:56 am

This is from the 9:00 Service.  I didn't start my iPhone for the 10:30 Service, so ... 

Sermon is Ephesians 6: 1-4 but it is as much on Living the Word as much as preaching the Word.  It was also shaped quite a bit by the events of Wednesday in Charleston SC at Emanuel AME.

June 7, 2015 @ 7:31 pm

Scripture is Psalm 130 -- a Lament/Ascent Psalm.  The big idea is that in Communion, we enter into Community.

May 17, 2015 — Moving from Brokenness to Wholeness

May 24, 2015 @ 3:25 pm
This is from Acts 1 where the Disciples are incomplete -- they only have 11 and need one more to be whole.  This is less about Matthias then it is about returning to wholeness.

May 3, 2015 — Communion: Conversation #1

May 4, 2015 @ 3:56 pm

The sermon uses 1 Corinthians 11: 23-26 as a start point, but is more about communion in general than it is about 1 Corinthians 11.  More of a topical sermon, then a classical sermon from a passage.

April 9, 1945 at Flossenburg, Germany

April 12, 2015 @ 3:25 pm

Mark 8: 31-38.  We have gotten the WayBack Machine and traveled to Flossenburg, Germany in 1945.  It is April 9.  The readings are a collection of thoughts by Bonhoeffer, or about Bonhoeffer by others.  I have a "script" if one wishes to see which is which.  mantuan@frii.com.

March 15, 2015 — Lent IV

March 15, 2015 @ 3:15 pm

Drawn from Mark 10: 17-31.  I chose to not deal with the eye of the needle/camel thing.  Jesus is not focused on that.  This is in fact, a rich text, and there are about 20 sermons for me in this.

March 1, 2015 — Lent II

March 1, 2015 @ 6:11 pm

This is a sermon from Mark 9: 14-29 and it is for the second Sunday of Lent.  We have been watching/discussing The Way along our way, and I do show a brief excerpt from the movie where a Priest tells Tom that of course he believes in miracles, it is his job after all.  This sermon has a twin focus of belief (faith) and prayer.
