Covenant: (A Lenten Sermon Series)

This series will seek to explore the difference between a covenant and a contract. The latter is based on distrust as opposed to the former. In this first sermon of the series, we will think together about the promise of God after the great flood. Is there a role we can play in ensuring God will ‘never again destroy the earth?’

 

 

“Covenant: A Lenten Sermon Series”  Part 1: “Flood Waters”

Covenant: (A Lenten Sermon Series) Part 2: Drawn to Barrenness
Reading Genesis 17.1-7,15- 16

In Part 2 of our Lenten Covenant series, we will think together about how God was drawn to the faithfulness of Abraham and Sarah but also to their barrenness. What is empty in us that God needs to fill?

Divine Distance

In case you missed the point
LAST week, it’ll be made here
again this week. This is the way
of Mark’s gospel…time and time again he makes it clear that there will be gaps in our
thinking…there will be mystery that will remain so. I mean who can REALLY know what Jesus is about…especially when some are healed, and some aren’t. We have to leave much to the divine distance between our free God
and who is independent from us and our desires.

Mark 1:40-55

There Are Going to be Gaps

We have to be comfortable not knowing why Jesus makes some of the choices he does…with the gaps between the ages, between our thinking and stories of the Bible. After, all what’s most important is NOT to have all the answers, but to have Jesus, Jesus in all of his life-giving presence.

Mark 1:29- 39

Where the Wild Things Are

I have some very good news! Between last week’s sermon and this week’s sermon, God’s word of judgement has been fulfilled.  This is kind of a parallel with what we are going through in this day and age with the pandemic.  We are dealing with a lot of hardships but in reading the book of Isaiah, it is obvious to us that good things are to come.

Isaiah 40: 1-11
