Living on Purpose: The relentless compassion of God

I notice, when talking with certain people about Christian living, it’s common for them to lose eye contact as they start searching for a way to change the subject. Actually, this is perfectly understandable. Why? Because if someone, even if they a...

Sermonette: Let's Huddle Up in Faith!

Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem...

Sermonette: Who I Am

Identity. It’s one of major topics of conversation in our world. We debate who can define our identity. We debate the different kinds of identity. We debate how others are supposed to respond to our identity. Who’s male and who’s female? Do I g...

Sermonette: Raising Children in America Today

The book of Daniel begins with a peculiar story. The best young men of Israel, who had been forcibly taken from their homes, are in Babylon when an edict comes to them. They are to be raised and educated in the palace with the best that Babylon has...

Sermonette: Blindness

I was watching a movie the other day based around World War I. In it, the main character was blinded for a few weeks after a passing exposure to mustard gas. This explained why, in the apex moment of the movie, the character had to be guided by his...

Sermonette: Joe's Kidney and Paul's Body

As of April, I am 15 months, and 26 months, removed from surgery on my right kidney. Long story short, the plumbing out of my kidney was kinked, and my right kidney was filling, but not draining. To have the issue resolved, I needed specialized...

 

Sermonette: Jesus as the Compassionate Creator

Think for a minute about your answer to this question – What is the most shameful thing you’ve done? This week I want to revisit a passage I recently studied in my time with the Lord. After spending some significant time in the Old Testament, I...

 

Sermonette: Contentment in Christ

How many times in the last week would you say you were completely content? I know my answer isn’t what I’d like it to be. These past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for me. Having graduated in December, I recently accepted a job out of...

 

Sermonette: An Honest Chat

The spiritual difficulties I’ve gone through have usually come in waves of struggle. Something like this: getting better—same struggle—getting better, etc. I usually don’t talk about it until I have it all sorted out, and feel like I...

 

Sermonette: Yielding My Perceived Rights

Kids these days, they’re so entitled. What a classic line from parents. Actually, I’m pretty sure I’ve even said this, which is funny—because recently I’ve been hit with the conviction that I’m entitled. I live like I have the right to ce...

 

First Lutheran Lenten series explores "Boundless" theme

First Lutheran Church kicked off the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday service on February 19 at 6 p.m. This year Ash Wednesday was approached much differently than in years past to assure the safety...

 

Sermonette: I Deserve God's Wrath. You Do Too.

If I were to ask you, “how would you explain the central message of Christianity?” how would you respond? The gospel, put simply – Jesus living the perfect life and dying for our sins, so that we can have eternal life with God – isn’t...

 

Sermonette: February 22, 2021

Without even saying, “be not afraid,” the familiar and beloved Ecclesiastes 3 addresses fear head on.  I think this is the reason Ecclesiastes is so beloved. Because it’s true. It’s true that half of life is suffering, and half is joy. It...

 

Sermonette: February 15, 2021

Fear can be a positive protective measure, and fear can morph into something destructive. When fear overwhelms us (2020 anyone?), we often tend to isolate ourselves, curving more and more inward. Scripture tells us the last thing we should do is to...

 

Sermonette: February 8, 2021

How have you experienced fear? What paralyzes you? What keeps you up at night? Psychology would tell us that fear is a natural defense mechanism, and can keep us from danger. We all have experiences where our fear kept us safe, avoided a dangerous...

 

Sermonette: February 1, 2021

There are 365 times in scripture that we read the words, “Be not afraid.” I’ve never gone through and counted them, so don’t quote me on it, but a simple concordance search confirms: there’s about that many. The remarkable part is to whom...

 

Sermonette: January 25, 2021

Quite a few years ago, about 20-25 years ago when living in Colorado, the lottery jackpot there reached an unheard of level. I don't recall the exact amount but I think it was getting close to $10 million dollars. A huge amount for a lottery back in...

 

Sermonette: January 18, 2021

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving might not be a good sport for you. If at first you don't succeed, you are probably headed toward a career as a cable TV news reporter. Silly jokes to be sure, but they do bring up an important point. A new beg...
