Sermons on Old Testament (Page 3)
The prophet Amos takes some heat from the religious establishment of Northern Israel. What does his example show us about how God calls people?
Israel has come to a dark period with little to hope for. But God speaks an incredible new promise, assuring them that the story is not over.
In the face of weakened values and faltering structures, ninistry candidate Lea Booth invites us to consider how we can become co-creators in bringing about God’s vision and dream for the world.
Although we are transitioning into November, we are taking this Sunday to conclude our annual Stewardship series. This final Sunday acknowledges that we often take great pride in doing things ourselves, and perhaps we can do so in how we commit to giving our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness in support of these ministries.
This week, our own Adam Marshall-Lopez examines an troubling question of faith: how could 1 Samuel attribute an “evil spirit” as coming from God? Or does it actually say that?
This week’s focus is connected to the Easter story and resurrection. The mention of resurrection in the Apostles’ Creed is brief, so what impact does it have on our faith today?
This week we examine the major portion of The Apostles’ Creed, focusing on Jesus. Quite a few theological statements are claimed in this central section of the creed. We explore what The Apostles’ Creed claims about Jesus and how these central claims form our faith.
This week we begin a new series on The Apostles’ Creed, one of the earliest statements of the Christian faith. We will explore the opening phrase: “I believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.” Is it possible that everything we know about the God of the universe is still incomplete?
This Sunday we enter the season of Lent and our Jesus Christ Superstar series with the opening song, “Heaven on Their Minds.” This song critiques Jesus and the disciples, and while it is from Judas’ perspective, it is also very much from “the outside looking in.” Our scriptures for this Sunday echo a similar perspective.
This third Sunday in our series on reading the Bible, we explore the continuation of the Hebrew Bible.
