“What Jesus Prays For” Sermon on July 28th

A sermon on The Lord’s Prayer based on Luke 11: 1-4

This was the ending “ditty” Kim read:

There’s work to do, deadlines to meet, you’ve got no time to spare. But as you hurry and scurry, ASAP: Always Say a Prayer. In the midst of family chaos, quality time is rare. Do your best; let God do the rest, ASAP: Always Say a Prayer. It may seem like your worries are more than you can bear. Slow down and take a breather, ASAP: Always Say a Prayer. God knows how stressful life is; God wants to ease our cares. And God will respond to all your needs, ASAP: Always Say a Prayer.

“What Is God Up TO?” Sermon on July 7th

Based on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians 1:9-10 “he has made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth in Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to gather up all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

Kim gives credit to Rob Bell and his book, “What is the Bible?” and his chapter 5 on the Greek word “anakephalaiossathai” for an interpretation of this scripture. Rob Bell’s book is available in print, Kindle and as an audiobook thru the link above – Ted’s opinion is that it is best to listen to it.
