    Proverbs 22:1 Ben just came to town as a new rabbi. Unfortunately, his first official duty was to conduct a funeral service for Albert, a man who died in his eighties, with few relatives.

    it is our responsibility to create disciples, but we often forget the Great Commission

    Matthew 28:16-20 This Sunday is the second Sunday of Pentecost, also known as ‘Trinity Sunday.’ I have preached the last five Trinity Sundays!

    John 20:19-31 Welcome to ‘Low Sunday,’ the first Sunday of the fifty days of Eastertide. After all the jubilation, misery, and rejoicing of last week, nothing can hold a candle to Holy Week.

The lessons have ...read more
