A sermon based on Hebrews 10:11-14, 23-25. As the author of Hebrews
declares, working together we can free ourselves of the fear that
threatens to overwhelm us. We can also provoke each other to greater
acts of love.
Sermon based on Matthew 14:13-21. Jesus, in the feeding of the five thousand (plus), shows us there is a better way to live than in fear that there will not be enough for each of us in this world. That fear is currently killing people. Listen for a different way, the way of God's kingdom, and be liberated.
Sermon based on Job 38:1-7: like Job (and unlike his friends) we can find peace by placing our faith in God and God's ways. It beats trying to go it alone or believing what society might have to say about us, especially in difficult times.
Go forth in peace, but not in complacency; be strong, but not arrogant; have conviction, but be understanding of the beliefs of others; be eager to love, but not meddlesome; be proud enough not to have contempt for yourselves, but sufficiently humble not to be jealous of your neighbors. Go forth in peace.

Lansdowne Baptist Church is pleased to host ABC USA missionaries to Thailand, Chuck K. and Ruth Gilson Fox, in church during 11 a.m. worship on Sunday, December 6th. They will speak of their good works overseas that day. Everyone is invited to come and hear what they have to say about their vital work.
Saturday, November 7th and 21st there will be two work days at Lansdowne Baptist Church. The work begins at 9 a.m. and ends around 3 p.m. Any contribution of time and talent you can make will be greatly appreciated.
Exterior work will continue, as it did during the successful October 10th and 24th work days. There will be leaves to remove and railings to sand and paint and other jobs awaiting. Plenty of opportunity for involvement will be available to all who take part in these opportunities.
The previous work day teams accomplished a great deal, cleaning up the grounds, planting new chrysanthemums in the beds, fixing cracks in the sidewalk and securing a stone step tread. It is amazing what the people of God can do when they offer up their gifts in service of the church. Thank you to all who have served in this important work so far and to all those who will come in the days ahead. Your efforts do not go unnoticed.
To see you at Lansdowne Baptist Church on time Sunday, November 1st, remember to set your clocks back one hour. This All Saint's Day we'll be focused on love, and you wouldn't want to miss that. We'll also be sharing communion together. Come worship and break bread with us.
