  • Doomsday Preppers

    This sermon reflects on what the John the Baptist says about Christ's coming and how we should prepare, and what Jesus says about when the end of the world will occur.

    Well, according to my count, we have about 12 days left until the world ends. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you’ve probably heard all about the Mayan calendar and how some say it predicts the world will end on December 21, 2012. Apparently, a stone tablet discovered in the more

  • Unexpected Jesus

    Contributed on Mar 25, 2013

    Do our expectations of who Jesus should be keep us from seeing who he really is?

    Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something about this story that has always bothered me. How on earth could Mary Magdeline, who has been one of Jesus’s closest friends, look right at him and doesn’t recognize him? Isn’t that like…the president of the George more
