Epiphany Week 4

Last week we asked, “Did the Apostle Paul just say ‘be perfectly united in EVERYTHING’? When has that ever happened?” This week we talked about some more reasons WHY that rarely happens, and some practical approaches to getting there more often. There was a disturbance in the service which indicated to many of us that perhaps this message was extra important for us to hear. The disturbance has not been edited out of this video, but the details and context remain private to our congregation.

Isaiah 42:1-9; Psalm 29; Acts 10:34-43; Matthew 3:13-17

Epiphany Week 1: what the story of Jesus and John the Baptist at Jesus’ baptism shows us about deriving our identity from the God who created us in His image. Also, is it possible that sometimes our correct ideas about God and ourselves protect us from an actual relationship with Him?

This sermon was preached at and for Central Baptist Church in Massachusetts, but also in conjunction with The Pilgrimage‘s online Winter Solace retreat.

Series: Already/Not Yet

It’s the first Sunday of Advent. During Advent, we become more aware of the Already/Not Yet condition in which we live since Jesus’ first arrival. Today we talk about the eternal reconciled “mountaintop experience” God has on His Christmas wishlist, and how we can live the Already in the Not Yet until Jesus returns and makes it the Now.
