Here is a sermon I preached at Peace Lutheran Church, College Station, TX on July 11, 2021. The sermon was on texts Amos 7:7-15; Ephesians 1:3-14; Mark 6:14-29. The Mark text is included so you will know why I didn't preach on it.
Short synopsis is everyone is chosen by God and we don't get to choose who isn't allowed to be a part.
This is an audio rip from a video I recorded for the summer staff at Crosstrails ministry in Southwest Texas Synod of the ELCA on Luke 15. Yes, the whole chapter. No, it isn't super long, just 10 minutes. Not an in-depth bible study, but a devotional to guide us in our daily lives as followers of the way.
Have a listen and maybe see this chapter of the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin, and the Prodigal Son in a new light...
Here is a sermon I preached at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in College Station, TX on June 6, 2021. It is on the text of Mark 3:20-35 and Genesis 3:8-15.
The audio volume is a little low. Sorry. Took from the live feed from the iPhone that was doing Facebook live.
Ramblings on the penultimate meeting for Treehouse, the Good Shepherd Sunday text of John 10:11-18, the verdict of Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd, all off the cuff. Will you travel with me down that rabbit hole?
I ramble about the quote from John Alan Turner, "It's hard to convince people that a God they can't see loves them, when a church they can see doesn't like them." And I ramble about the statement, "God loves you as you are, but God loves you too much to leave you that way." And about friends who can't worship because the "church" won't accept them.
