Sermon #5: The Parable of the Great Banquet
August 9, 2015
Today is our last sermon in our summer series “The Stories of Us: Rediscovering the Parables of Jesus”. This has been a fun series for pastor Donnell and I work on for several reasons. The most central reason being that we enjoy stories. We enjoy listening to stories and we enjoy telling stories. I’ve especially enjoyed living out my own story; seeking to love my families, champion my friendships, and a pastor at a great local church.

    Sermon #4: The Unjust Steward, Part II
    August 2, 2015
    At the center of our sermon series is the power of story, the stories we receive and the stories we tell. Because a story is the best way of talking about the way the world actually is. Our lives are lived within a narrative. It’s the story of our lives because
    story is central;
    story binds us;
    story creates emotions;
    story creates connection;
    story shapes our reality.

    Sermon #2: Rediscovering the Parables of Jesus - Our Foundations
    July 19, 2015
    A farm girl was on her way to the market with a basket full of eggs that she collected that very morning. Walking along, she starts day dreaming about how eggs, if left alone, may grow into chickens one day. She could then sell the more valuable chickens at the market, and use the money to buy a beautiful dress that will turn the boys' heads. So, becoming lost in her fantasy, she begins practicing how she'll toss her head to pretend she isn't interested in the boys who are ogling her pretty dress, and when she does, the eggs fall out of the basket and break.
    The moral: don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    Sermon #1: The Compassionate Employer - Matthew 20
    July 12, 2015
    As the poet Rukeyser declares, “The universe is made of stories, not just atoms.” The scientists among us might have a different insight, and as they offer their rebuttal, you just might hear them say, “let me tell you a story of the nature of the universe.” Why? Because stories are the connections, the glue that binds us together to a shared experience, a shared understanding.

    Sermon #10: Discernment & Prayer
    July 5, 2015
    This morning we wrap our 10-week journey with Simon Peter. We aren’t done telling his story, and I want to revisit him soon. I hope you have learned something about the Art of Being Yourself over these past 10 weeks. I pray that you have been encouraged by Peter’s story. I pray that you see and accept the invitation from Jesus to join him by going through the narrow gate, leaving behind whatever it is you are holding onto for safety and security and trusting God for what’s next.
