Renewal for Life with Pete James

The focus of this sermon is renewal. The reason is rather simple. I need renewal... Scripture testifies time and again how much God’s people need renewal. This call to renewal started small in me. I was reading the Psalms. Psalm 80: “Restore us, O God, let your face shine, that we may be saved” (80:3, 7, 19). Psalm 85: “Restore us again, O God of our salvation….Will you not revive us again…?” (85:4, 6).

Message for Sunday, January 24

" ...you are most likely at home with the evidence of a gigantic blizzard all around you. While we treasure the weekly times the fellowship of God’s people gather to worship that Lord who loves us we also know the Sabbath was made for us and there are times with good sound judgment says, 'Stay home.'"

Accidental Pharisees with Pete James

To be called a Pharisee in our day is something of an insult. Pharisee has become synonymous with words like hypocrisy and self-righteousness. We’ve identified Pharisees as the bad guys of the Bible.
Let me set the record straight...

The Bless’ed Life with Pete James

Jesus began his Sermon on the Mount with eight Beatitudes. These beatitudes look and sound nice, but I’m not sure anyone takes them seriously anymore. The meek certainly don’t inherit this earth. Nobody who is awash in grief or persecuted for what they believe would dare call themselves blessed.

Lower Is Higher with Pete James

We’ll be preaching for the next three months on the most famous sermon ever preached. It’s called the Sermon on the Mount and is recorded for us in Matthew 5-7. If you want to discover what Jesus considers important, this Sermon on the Mount is bedrock Jesus.

The Christmas Star and the Magi with David Jordan-Haas

The story about the Magi—or the Wise Men or (as one translation puts it) that “Party of Astrologers,” —they’re following a shining star. They’re following a star... shining right over the very place where the Child lay! The Wise Men are right on it, laser-focused, following that Star. Since it’s still very much Christmas, we have this story for you about the star, and a wise man, and also the innkeeper on that Christmas Night.

Christmas Eve with Pete James

Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away...I couldn't get this story out of my mind this week as I prepared for this sermon... The opening words to this epic drama happen to coincide with the story I'd like to share with you...

Great Joy with Pete James

I am reminded of what Sheldon Vanauken writes, “The best argument for Christianity is Christians: their joy, their certainty, their completeness. But the strongest argument against Christianity is also Christians, when they are somber and joyless, when they are self-righteous and smug…when they are narrow and repressive, then Christianity dies a thousand deaths.” Today’s topic is joy. Last Sunday, it was peace and the Sunday before that, it was hope. Is there anyone here today not interested in finding hope, peace and joy?
