This morning, I am continuing our Lenten Sermon Series, Boot Camp for the Soul and the theme is redefined. I didn't record the entire scripture, because it was quite lengthy to read and I think as long as you know what stories I am talking about, the sermon will make sense. If you are interested in looking them up, the two scriptures are 1 Samuel 16:1-15 & John 9:1-41. It is the story of the anointing of King David and the healing of the blind man (the children and I made mud during the children's sermon!).
- Rev. Sarah
This is week two of the Lenten sermon series, Boot Camp for the Soul and the topic is, reset. In this sermon, Rev. Sarah uses the call of Abraham and the dialogue between Nicodemus and Jesus about being born of the spirit to talk about what it means to start over and for God to give us second chances (and sometimes third, fourth and fiftieth chances, if we need them!). She encourages people to hit the reset button and find changes (both big and small) in their lives that will strengthen their faith and draw them closer to God.
This morning I began a sermon series from the book, A Preacher's Guide to Lectionary Sermon Series, which was edited by Amy Butler. The sermon series is called Boot Camp for the Soul and this week's topic is The Need for Change.
In this special mid-week episode of the Preaching in Pumps podcast, Rev. Sarah shares her reflection from RCC's Ash Wednesday service. She also talks about her first ever "Ashes to Go" experience at a nearby train station. Happy Lent, everyone!
