Sermons from January 2021
Mike talks about the pendulum of wisdom and escapism, and talks through how the Teacher in Ecclesiastes shows way we like to escape wisdom, including the dangerous posture of nostalgia in our everyday lives.
Mike continues in Ecclesiastes as we look at chapters 3-4, with 2 passages well known from a 60’s song and and a statement on friendship, but have much different meanings when engaging the biblical text on the Teacher’s understanding on what we strive for may be the wrong focus.
Mike opens up a new series on Ecclesiastes challenging the typical assumptions that this book is “meaningless.” Instead, he offers challenges and encouragement of why this book is considered wisdom literature, with the first two chapters providing an alternate perspective on living life.
Join us for a special gathering about the season of Epiphany, which means, “revelation.” Join Rev. Sayuri Kist-Okazaki, the first ordained female minister in Japan for the RCA as she walks through its meaning. Make sure you check out the entire service by the RCA Global Board on Missions at our YouTube or Facebook page.
Guest Jon Sherrill joins us as he walks through the murky waters of understanding how to approach sin in our lives. He navigates the difficult tension of the extremes of legalism and license and the heart of what the Apostle Paul is communicating during his time…and ours.
