Today we consider a very serious word that people from all religious backgrounds say is a “bad word” for children, yet we live in a world with so much hate. How does the Bible talk about “hate” and what place, if any, does hate have in our lives?
This sermon considers words or ideas that are hard to talk about in the faith journey or church life; ideas that make us feel ashamed or confused as to how to make them a part of our lives as Christians, if we do at all. This first sermon in the series looks at the idea of failure. How can we admit that everyone goes through failure, but not let it define us as people?
This sermon is the last of the series on games and their lessons for our life and faith. In this final one, we explore the simple childhood game of Tag and wonder about what it means that God has tagged (or chosen) us. What does it mean to be “It” in our lives?
This sermon explores lessons from one of the most popular board games of all time (and one of the hardest to actually win): Monopoly. How can we get off the game board of this world so focused on riches and winning and live by a different, more purposeful set of values?
This week’s sermon explores a game meant for our youngest children. What does it mean to win at a game where there is no strategy? Where it is all “luck of the draw”? In life, how do we make the best of whatever hand we are dealt, even when it seems unfair?
