This is the audio sermon from worship service on March 1, 2020.
Text: Matthew 4:1-11. Jesus is led to the wilderness by the Holy Spirit and tempted by Satan.
As we are conflicted to learn that it is the Holy Spirit who leads Jesus to the place for temptation, how do we discern the purpose of temptations and trials in this world? Where is the presence of God during our temptation in this world?

We pray that you are blessed as you discern how Jesus calls you today to follow his ways.
This is the audio sermon from January 26, 2020. Text: Matthew 4:12-25. Scripture Reader: Lorna Wade
Jesus comes to the Sea of Galilee and calls his first disciples by saying, "Follow me."
How would you answer to Jesus if he interrupts your perfect life and calls you to follow him?
Although we tend to visualize the nativity scene as peaceful and calm, was it really silent, clean, and peaceful?
Pastor Bob invites you to reimagine the night when Jesus was born and reflect on the grace of God who meets us
in circumstances not peaceful, not clean, and vulnerable.
This is the audio sermon from December 8, 2019.
Prophet Isaiah says that a shoot will come out of the stump of Jesse. Have you witnessed life out of death? How can we proclaim that there is hope out of what seems like despair today?

As many of us live in our society driven by fear and violence, God speaks to Prophet Isaiah with a beautiful image of transforming swords to plowshares. As Christ is coming to us as the Prince of Peace, how can we participate in the transforming vision of God for this world?

Text: Colossians 3:12-15
This is an audio sermon from All Saints Day (November 2) The scripture reading is from Luke 6:20-31, the Sermon on the Plain.
As we are reminded that faith comes by hearing, can you name saints in your life or your church who showed you and told you how God loves you unconditionally? Are you also sharing your faith and love of God with others who might see you as their saints? Can we remember the saints at Living Faith UMC who have helped us who we are today?
Audio Sermon from October 27, 2019
Scripture Reading: Luke 18:9-14
Jesus gives a parable about two men, a Pharisee and a tax collector, going to the temple to pray. What traits define us as good person or bad person in society? How does Jesus turn our notions of good and bad upside down? On whose righteousness are we considered as good before God?
Jesus was going through a region between Galilee and Samaria where he met the ten lepers. They were all healed but only one of them returned to thank Jesus. (Luke 17:11-19) Who was this person? Why is it important for us? How do you give thanks to God today?
Jesus speaks of a great chasm between the rich man and Lazarus. (Luke 16:19-31)
What is a chasm that blocks you from reaching out to your neighbors today?
What did Jesus do to cross a chasm between God and us?
We pray that God bless you as you listen to this message and empower you
as you reach out to your neighbors crossing a chasm.
This is sermon from Rev. Bob Jon, pastor of Living Faith UMC in Putnam, CT.
We hope that you are blessed by this message and experience the grace of God
at work in your life this coming week.
Our church worships at 10 am on Sunday with Sunday school at the same time.
