This piece is part of a series called “The Conversation” a longer look at how the prayers of the bible teach us and shape our prayer lives.
Who doesn’t love grapes? In this sermon we look at Jesus’s explanation of how he is a vine, and we are the branches of the vine. We look at his love for us, how we relate to that love, and what it means for how we live together. Preached May 5, 2018 @ St. Peter’s Comox
When we are closed up to everything sometimes an interruption helps us to hear. This is a story of the God who interrupts us so we can hear the comfort we need. Preached @ St. Peter’s Comox Feb. 4, 2018.
Have you ever talked with someone who loves bacon about bacon? Food gets contentious, it gets controversial. Walk with God and his people in this sermon as they struggle over food, as they seek out how to handle division in their community, as they seek to let Jesus be their king. I also get meta and talk about sermons in a sermon. Preached @ St. Peter’s Comox Jan. 28, 2018.
People really do hurt us. How do we respond to the compassion God gives to our enemies? How do we let his love for them reign in us? Jonah’s is a story of repentance and anger, justice and compassion. In this message we engage with the God who overturns us and those we hate. Preached @ St. Peter’s Comox January 21, 2018.
