A story of conflict, struggle, deep need, and transformative blessing. Preached at the Church of Good Shepherd, Taylor August 2, 2020.
A story of a woman of lavish love, many tears, abandon in worship and a world-changing experience. This sermon was preached at a mid-week service in the backyard of the rectory in Fort St John on June 22, 2020, though I feel this will be one of those sermons I am rewriting and rewriting my whole life through.
We believe in a God who makes all things new. We believe in a God who is faithful and does not turn back on his promises. We believe in a God whose words will not pass away even though heaven and earth pass away. Jeremiah in the face of God’s judgment proclaims for us today a new promise, one which we Christians have heard and interpreted in the New Testament. Let us listen to it closely.
Just because we use a word doesn’t mean we know what it means. Today we look at how Hebrews 11 explains faith more deeply. Preached at Good Shepherd, Taylor and St. Matthias, Cecil Lake August 11, 2019.
There is perhaps nothing more exhausting than a lack of consistent leadership. Problems get solved in four places at the same time by different people with different solutions. Or situations go on and on unresolved because noone assumes responsibility for addressing a difficult situation. Standards get relaxed. Feelings get hurt. People get ignored. Bullied.
