Sermon: Never Empty

jar rice 1“Never Empty”

(June 9, 2013) Just when it seems all hope is gone, and the last flour has been scraped from the jar, the last loved one pried from her life, a widow who opened her home to a prophet finds God’s grace and abundance interceding in her life. Where are the places you feel most empty, and are longing to be filled? (1 Kings 17:8-24, Luke 7:11-17)


I apologize for the horrific sound quality on this week’s recording. New iPhone did not like old headphones. I’ve also had this problem with wineskins.


Sermon: God’s Gardening

waterfall trees 2“God’s Gardening”

(May 5, 2013) The Biblical story is filled with gardens, always conveying humanity’s flourishing– or lack thereof– as we seek to live before God and with one another. Although we may feel like we have been cut off from the blessing and abundance all around us, the story is not complete; the story is complete only when healing and peace and blessing unfold. (Genesis 3:9-12, 17-19, 22-24, Revelation 22:1-5)
