This Sunday we are talking about a sad story. A consequence of not really knowing God's Word. It leads to the death of a young lady, and the heartache of a father. It's the "if only" statement that makes this story really sad. It's a really important lesson that is so pertinent for us today... Come along and let me tell you all about it!
This Sunday we are talking about left hands. Are you left-handed? For many centuries there was a bit of discrimination toward the left hand. To be sure there were some cultural issues which linked left hands to unpleasant things. Because of this, and other superstitious notions, people were discouraged to be left handed. But God has a story that comes out of left field... and it has to do with the left hand!
This Sunday is Easter!!! Rob preached from a story in the New Testament that continues the series that we've been on. The story is one of shame, guilt, sex, intrigue, a little bit of confusion... and overwhelming grace...
War. God seems indiscriminate when it comes to annihilating everyone in the Old Testament. There are not many sermons out there that do a good job dealing with the issue of what’s come to be known as “Holy War.” In fact many of us today use this term to justify our mad incursions into battles with peoples whom we don’t see eye to eye. Justice demands that we fight! I'm just not sure "war" is justice.
Continuing our series sharing about the story of Rahab, who for all eternity will be known as the prostitute. Why they continue to refer to her as the prostitute, almost as though it is her nickname, I'm still not sure, but the story is a really interesting one, and one that may surprise you just a little. What's in a nickname?
