    How the fourth commandment commanding observance of the sabbath applies to Christians.

    We’ve got to learn to slow down before it kills us. In 1991 economist Juliet Schor wrote a book called "The Overworked American," where she demonstrated that work hours and stress are at an all time high for us (Bass 1). Today’s full-time employee works an average of 163 more hours than employees ...read more

    God has established relationships of authority in our lives and we honor God by respecting these relationships of authority.

    Our generation is more cynical about authority figures than any other generation in our nation’s history.

At one time confidence in our federal government soared, but then ...read more

    Our sexuality is a good gift from God, to be treasured, protected and enjoyed in the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman.

    Most people in our culture today don’t often associate the word "God" with the word "sex". In fact, for most people, the only thing they think they know about God and sex is that God is against it. Often Christians are thought to be hung up about sex, accused of viewing the human body as dirty and ...read more

    God calls us to be managers of His stuff, so our stuff doesn’t possess us.

    Each one of us have been ripped off before. Most of us know what it feels like to have our home broken into by a burglar, or have a purse or wallet stolen. Many of us have been conned before. Perhaps the worst kind of theft is stealing a person. Stealing, robbery, kidnapping, extortion, swindling, ...read more

    Since truth exists we ought to seek the truth, tell the truth, live the truth, and share the truth with others.

    "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." That’s what Sir Walter Scott said almost 200 years ago, and it’s just as true today as it was then. Yet that doesn’t stop most of us from lying, does it? The 1992 book The Day America Told the Truth found that 91% of us lie ...read more

    There’s nothing more important in life than having the right God in the right place in our lives.

    Note: This sermon was introduced with a drama called "Idle Idols"). Can you feel the barbs of truth as we laugh? Funny, but painfully true of life in the end of the 20th century. Our culture is littered with false gods, whether they be entertainment idols or motor homes, sports memorabilia or ...read more

    God is passionate about us worshipping him accurately and on his terms.

    It was an exciting week at our house. Our tadpoles changed into frogs this week, so we’ve all be reflecting on the wonder of metaphorphasis.

    As followers of Jesus Christ, we carry God’s name with us wherever we go, whatever we do.

    What’s in a name? In Shakespeare’s "Romeo and Juliet," Romeo asks that very question: "What’s in a name? A rose by any other name still smells just as sweet." Romeo would have us believe that names are just arbitrary ways of saying who we are.   But names are far more important than Romeo would ...read more

    There’s a new religious cult in our community, and most of us haven’t even noticed it. This cult is far larger than the ones you’ve heard about on the radio or read about in most books about cults. I’m talking about the cult of consumerism, the false religion of more (Buchanan 63-64). This cult ...read more
