  • What To Do When The Fireworks Aren't There

    Contributed by John Herrmann on Jun 21, 2011
    based on 3 ratings
     | 3,220 views

    Appropriate for July 4th Weekend, this sermon offers a brief glimpse into where freedom and celebration are perhaps lacking in the Christian life and how joy and freedom are ultimately to be found in Christ alone.

    PBS once had an interesting program on fireworks – how they are made, how they work and so on. By way of contrast the newspaper was full of stories about communities and civic agencies canceling their fireworks shows on account of extreme fire hazard and fiscal concerns in a weak economy. ...read more

    As the woman at the well was offered living water,so we are given soul refreshment in Jesus.

    On a recent trip to the Holy Land, we were told Arab separatists in this town of Nablus, an hour north of Jerusalem, are as amped up as they are in the Gaza strip, further southwest. Though I never felt in danger on all my trips to the beautiful Holy Land, I believe the racial tensions there in ...read more

  • Learning Courage In Christ

    Contributed by John Herrmann on Nov 16, 2008

    Fear walls us in and makes us like the servant of the Master that buried the talent he had been entrusted with in the ground. Faith sees ourselves as gifted and bold in Christ.

    Today’s lesson finds a man digging a hole in the ground. We learn that a man going on a journey entrusted a portion of his wealth to three of his employees. Two of the three employees invested their wealth and received commendable returns. The third was afraid and hid his in a hole in the ground. ...read more

    As the wise bridesmaids were well prepared for Christ’s return -- unlike the foolish ones, so the church is called to prepare by making Provision, Protection and Praise.

    Pentecost 26a Prepare for Christ Mt. 25:1-13 11/9/08 These stained glass windows on the west side of the Sanctuary come from our old church, erected here in the forties during WW II. Among them is the image of a lamp with a flame emerging from it. The University of California has ...read more

  • Remain In Christ

    With things changing about us faster than we can imagine, we can remain the same --- strong and steady in Christ.

    Remain In Christ John 8:31-36 In our elementary school chapel service last Sunday, I noted how attentive all the kids were when the object for the children’s message was a pumpkin. There is something about pumpkins that grabs our attention and keeps it. My wife suggests it’s because it only ...read more

  • Would You Too Reject Him?

    Contributed by John Herrmann on Oct 5, 2002

    In the parable of the vineyard and the "rejected cornerstone of Christ", we see how an ever near and patient God reveals himself in Creation and redemption -- working through the Holy Spirit to keep us from rejecting him.

    It would seem the vineyard image is appropriate for this time of year. I’ve read that the Napa Valley is expecting a great crush this year. In Amador County, here in California, there is weekend tasting and festivities in honor of the harvest vintage. Maybe some of our people are there right ...read more

  • Let Christ Bring A Resolution

    God works behind the scenes. Caiaphas the high priest’s plan to eliminate Christ became part of God’s design to redeem the world. God continues to work through us too as the body of Christ to bring about his ultimate purpose.

    Let Christ Bring A Resolution Jn. 11:47-53 There’s always a resolution for your problems. Things can and do come together after all. Ezekiel in the Old Testament (Ezekiel 37) offers an image of life being breathed into dead bones with the result that there is a noise and a rattling sound, ...read more

    This message offers the source and necessity of hope in Christ contrasted with the hope the world may give us

    Overflowing in Hope Romans 15:4-13 A city slicker moved to a farm and bought a cow. Shortly after, the cow went dry. A farmer, who got word of this, expressed surprise. The city man said he was surprised too. “I can’t understand it, for if a person ever was considerate of an animal, I was ...read more
