Hi friends!  This sermon kind of took a different direction than I thought it was going to, but things kept happening throughout the week pushing me to look at the scripture in a different way.

To give some background, I shared with the congregation on Friday morning that I am pregnant with our second child, due in April.  I start the sermon by talking about a doctor's appointment I had at the beginning of the week that made me have to live out Jesus' words, "Do not worry."

Enjoy!

Hi friends!

Sunday was my annual stewardship sermon, although Bruce told me last night that he didn't feel like it was so much a stewardship sermon as it was a sermon on why I love the church so much.  But that totally ties into why I give to the church, right?

We're still in the middle of our sermon series on the Sermon on the Mount!  This week's scripture tied in really nicely to our stewardship theme.  A totally God thing!

Enjoy!

Hi friends!  This sermon should not have been a hard one to preach, but the timing of it falling the same week our stewardship packets were mailed made it much more challenging!  I had one thing in mind, but ended up scrapping it and taking a different course, which I actually think started some good conversations.

I'm curious - how do your churches handle stewardship?  Is it a quiet thing or are you encouraged to talk about it more?  I love hearing about other church's stewardship practices - I'm kind of a stewardship nerd!

Hi friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful World Communion Sunday celebration.  We had a beautiful bread installation on the altar that made the chancel smell soooooooo good!

This Sunday we looked at the last three of the six antitheses, concerning oaths, concerning retaliation and love for enemies.

Guys.

Weeks like this are the ones where I miss the lectionary and the ability to say - let me see what the epistle is this week, ha!

It wasn't an easy week to walk up to the pulpit, but it's week's like these that are making me a better preacher - and we are all learning more!

Here is this week's sermon!

Enjoy ...
