Out of Her Poverty



Sermon for Sunday, November 11, 2018, based on Mark 12:38-44. Jesus discusses giving, generosity, and how easy it is to go astray when your society is fixated on status. That fixation easily impacts people of all levels of society. Jesus focuses on the Temple Scribes, the wealthy congregants, and one poor widow. He is particularly interested in that widow, and so will we be in this sermon on good stewardship. You are invited to listen. You are also invited to join us at Lansdowne Baptist in Lansdowne, PA, any time you are in town.

How Do We Hear?



The sermon for Sunday, September 23, 2018, was based on Luke 8:4-8. The parable of the sower has much to tell us, if, as Jesus says, we have ears to hear. There is much to be discovered about being disciples of "enduring patience." It is well worth a listen. If you like what you hear, you are invited to join us for worship any Sunday you happen to be in or near Lansdowne, PA. You will be most welcome.

Every Tuesday night at 8 p.m. (with exceptions for the pastor's vacation and power failures), we have a live stream Bible study. You are invited to subscribe on YouTube (it's free) and join: If you'd like a little more information on becoming a subscriber, see the following. To learn how to join us on the Beyond Loaves and Fishes live stream event each Tuesday night, take a look at the following blog post and follow the simple steps: https://lansdownebaptistchurch.blogspot.com/2018/05/beyond-loaves-fishes-livestream-bible.html

Walking Prayer at the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge

On Sunday, September 16, 2018, at 2 p.m., members and friends of Lansdowne Baptist Church went on a walking prayer at the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia. It was wonderful to get out on a startlingly beautiful day and be quiet in God's creation. As usual, once we became still, all the wildlife around became apparent to us. It is amazing what we overlook in our hurried lives.

Our next walking prayer will be on Sunday, October 14, 2018. We meet in the church parking lot at 1:30 p.m. and travel over together. It takes roughly fifteen minutes to get to our beautiful destination. All who wish to encounter God through the natural world are welcome to join us.
