A short message concerning what we can do together to assist our African
American brothers and sisters to push back against the sin of racism so
deeply baked into our society. It's a message of encouragement for
everyone and a call to action.

Sermon from June 9, 2019, on Children's Sunday, based on Isaiah 1:15-20. We involve Dr. Seuss's less-than-reliable character of the Cat in the Hat to help illustrate how we can clean up our acts when we create big messes in our lives if we trust in God. Come and see how that all works out together. Join us on Sunday morning for worship if you are in our area!

Sunday sermon following Earth Day, based on Genesis 2:15 & Leviticus 19:9-10. We look at the creation story to see what is intended in our relationship between God and humanity. Leviticus helps us with our relations between each other. The menorah was lit in solidarity with the synagogue congregants in San Diego who were attacked, and with all who have suffered violence in their sacred spaces. Watch and see what is to be discovered through this riveting tale.

The sermon for Sunday, September 30, 2018, covers Matthew 20:1-16, the parable of the Workers in the Vineyard. It explores the issue of fairness from God's perspective rather than humanity's. God's expansive love leads to a surprising level of inclusion. We also explore what "the evil eye" meant back in the day and why we should avoid it today. Have a listen. Peace. Feel free to join us in Sunday worship if you are in the vicinity of Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, and do not have a church of your own to attend. All are welcome.

Come along and discover the vital connection.

Welcome to June, the beginning of the summer season. Time to relax and enjoy ourselves a bit. So, this month we'll once again be turning to super heroes to see what they have to tell us, along with the Bible of course, about how we may best live our lives. This week we focused on Ephesians 4:25-32 and The Incredible Hulk to study how we might best manage our anger issues. Come along with us and watch. Enjoy your summer and God bless you. If you are in the neighborhood, come and join us on Sunday morning at Lansdowne Baptist Church in Lansdowne, PA, for our worship service.

Sermon based on Luke 6:46-49 answering the question, how do you know you have a firm foundation? Having one allows us to be confident in the face of the storms of life. Having one allows us to live life as confident individuals who are able to fulfill the great commandments, loving God and neighbors. Living life from that firm foundation requires trying, falling flat on our faces, getting up and trying again. Are you in? Come along and learn how it is done.

Here is a powerful story of reconciliation and forgiveness that heals. This is key to creating healing communities and church stations of hope: working together to help families of those who have been incarcerated and those in prison themselves. It is well worth watching and wrestling with by all who seek to help or who have someone in the prison system.
God bless you all.
