This week we're moving on from Rahab to Gideon in our sermon series on "Misused Stories of the Bible." We'll be in Judges 6:36-40 and the famous story of Gideon "putting out a fleece" in order to have God confirm the instructions that He's already given to Gideon. It's not just that Gideon doesn't like the instructions God's given him, but rather he's terrified of the inst...

This week we continue our new sermon series on "Misused Stories of the Bible." We'll be looking at a number of famous Bible stories that are often misinterpreted and misinterpreted to such an extent that we miss the real meaning of the story. It's interesting because one of the stories I use in my preaching class at Reformed Theological Seminary, as an example of HOW NOT ...

This week we start a new sermon series on "Misused Stories of the Bible."

Well, we've come to the end of our 44-sermon series on The Gospel of Mark. I'm going to miss learning from Peter and John Mark. Hopefully, after having spent the last year immersed in their eyewitness accounts of the life of Christ, you will miss them too. We'll be finishing up with Mark 15:21-47 and the depiction of the crucifixion. However, it's pretty obvious that some...

Have you ever made a promise to someone your spouse, your child, your best friend, a co-worker and then, without even thinking about it broke it? Perhaps you had forgotten you made this promise. Maybe you didn't remember the promise until after it was broken. Possibly you had to be reminded that you had made this promise. And it was made worse because the reminder came ...

It's hard to believe that we're 5 months into the pandemic and that we've been back at in-person worship for 10 weeks. It has felt like both a blur and an eternity. Through it all, the Lord has consistently shown Himself to be faithful to us. Praise God for the many ways we've had to rely on Him and for the many ways that we've seen Him be present in the midst of hard time...

Mark 14:27-42 Have you ever marveled at the unwise choices someone else has made? Have you ever found yourself wondering, "What in the world were they thinking? I would have never done that?" Then you suddenly realize that you do the same thing all the time. Or, have you ever felt certain your loyalty would empower you to do something hard or unpopular for someone else,...

I imagine most of us feel somewhat divided about them, because so many different issues are being protested. We may agree with some and disagree with others. Some of the protests are peaceful and some are not. Some of the protests have seen the police come alongside and some h...
