This week is Pentecost Sunday, the day we remember the Holy Spirit coming on, or perhaps, into, the disciples. They were in the upper room, and when the Spirit came, they were driven out into the streets preaching the Good News. Today we'll look at why, at the fire, the passion, and the power that led them as they served Jesus. And we'll see how we might develop our faith to best serve Jesus with that same fire, passion and power.
This week is Ascension Sunday, the day we remember Jesus going back into the heavens. We'll look at what it meant for the discioples, and we'll see what it means for us. What are we to do with the knowledge that Jesus is back in heaven? Now what are we to do?
Peace Be With You
Sometimes life seems anything but peaceful. We hurry from place to place, we rush around trying to get everything done, we feel anxious, but we don't feel peace. Yet peace is one of those promises that God makes to us. So how do we get from here to there? How do find that peace that Jesus promised?
This week we examine the question of our role in the Kingdom of Heaven. What can we know about our role in heaven, and how to get there, and even a little about what we ought be doing until we get there. Let me know what you think?
This morning, Leroy Woodruff is giving us a message that looks at the statement that God will never give you more than you can bear. We hear that statement from time to time, but is it really true? Leroy examines it in his message this morning.
This week we are looking at Jesus' appearing on the Road to Emmaus on what we've come to call Resurrection Sunday. The women have reported that the tomb is empty, yet these two disciples have left to go home. Why? We'll look into who they are, where they are going, and what we can learn from this encounter.
Believing What We Haven't Seen
Every year, the Revised Common Lectionary lists this passage in John 20 as the Gospel reading for the week after Easter. It's the story of Thomas, and his refusal to beleive that Jesus has risen from the dead. So we look at Thomas this week, to get a better idea who he was, and who he became, through faith in his Lord and his God.
The Third Day - Easter Sunday
Today is Easter Sunday, and jump out of the Gospels for a week to see an exchange between Cornelius, a Gentile, and Peter. In this exchange, we see a very clear presentation of the Good News that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Today is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. As we think of Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem on what has become known as Palm Sunday, knowing what comes just five days later, we wonder why the crowds had turned so against Him. That's our topic today.
When Jesus Disappoints
This week is the fifth Sunday in Lent, and we'll be looking at Jesus' resurrection of Lazarus. It's a familiar passage, but we'll be looking at it from a little different perspective, noticing the disappoint in both Mary and Martha when Jesus didn't get there on time. Sometimes we're disappointed by what we don't understand of God.
