Sermons on Redemption

Isaiah 64:1-9 from December 3, 2017

On this first Sunday of Advent, we read a prayer from Isaiah proclaiming “O that you would rip open the heavens and come down!” (among other things).  We take a look at what it means to have hope in Christ, a hope that is not lost even in when redemption seems impossible.

Matthew 18.21-35 from September 17, 2017

In the context of a discussion on sin in the church community, Peter asks Jesus how many times he should forgive – seven times?  Jesus’ reply and the following parable challenge us to forgive indefinitely.  We talk about the challenges of forgiveness and the calling that Jesus places on his disciples to forgive.

Matthew 28:1-10 from Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017

When Mary and Mary find the tomb empty, they hear and spread the good news that Jesus is risen and everything has changed!
