We are going to race through a lot of material tonight, running through Ebenezer Scrooge's wild night of adventures with ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, seeing how Mr. Scrooge goes from Mr. Bah Humbug to a man who would keep Christmas in his heart for the rest of his life. It's a remarkable transformation with lots for us to consider in our own lives. Join us Tuesday night, December 18, 2018, for the conclusion of this short series. After Christmas, in the new year as a matter of fact, we'll finish Matthew. Wishing each and every one of us the blessings of Christmas. God bless us every one as Tiny Tim would say. See you tonight. If you're watching this later, welcome. Please subscribe at the J.S. Brooks page with the cartoon image of my face. You can't miss it. We'd love to have you subscribe and join us on Tuesday nights. Peace, Rev. Jeff Snyder

Sermon based on Luke 3:7-18, in which John the Baptizer speaks plainly to the crowd that has come to hear him. He wants to make clear what must be done by people who seek to turn their lives around and follow God's way in anticipation of the Messiah's arrival. It is a powerful message for people of any time. Come and watch.

Sermon based on Luke 3:1-6, studying how John the Baptist made the way straight for Jesus in word and deed. Plenty of life application lessons in John's message for his first century listeners and us on the way of repentance and being a good follower of Christ. Come and watch.

We are taking a little break before we finish Matthew. For the Advent season, leading up to Christmas, we will be studying Charles Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol and seeing what spiritual lessons we can learn from this enduring classic. We are using a wonderful study guide available through Judson Press called The Redemption of Scrooge. I recommend it to you all.
You'll notice we had a little hiccup this week. It threw me for a bit of a loop and I think it shows. It didn't interrupt the live stream and I discovered how to solve it, but I wanted you to know now.
I hope you join us for the second session after watchin this on Tuesday, December 18, 2018, at 8 p.m. for the second week. Peace, Rev. Jeff Snyder

Sermon based on Luke 21:25-36, showing how Jesus' glimpse into the future and his eventual return in victory has a great deal to tell us about living as faithful disciples in the world today. Watch and discover what each of us can do in the here and now, even when it seems the world is falling apart. Then again, Jesus would ask us exactly how are we looking at the world. Come and see.
