  • Responding To Disappointments: A Star And A Stable (Epiphany)

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Jan 20, 2020
     | 49 views

    Difficulties are part of life, how we respond is what makes the difference. Joseph and Mary faced the difficulty of being refugees in the land of Egypt in order to save the child Jesus from Herod. The "ah ha" moment is when we realize God is with us no matter where we find ourselves.

    Stars and a Stable: Responding to Disappointments One of my closest friends loves UGA! He’s a graduate and a dedicated football loyalist. Now let’s not question his Christianity just yet. He has a saying, "When I die, make sure you chant the Eucharist at my funeral mass. And make sure the ...read more

  • Do You Want The Church To Grow?

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Jan 20, 2020
     | 98 views

    This is a sermon on evangelism that is tied to Jesus's call to the apostle Andrew. Andrew 1) grows in discipleship and 2) grows the church. The sermon tells people that they can be excited and happy about their faith, and share it with other people.

    Do you want the church to grow? Andrew wasn’t the popular kid in class. His name is only mentioned in twelve verses in the Bible, and eight of those describe him as "Peter's little brother." Even though he was one of the first two or three followers of Jesus, Peter was still the ...read more

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Dec 22, 2019
     | 135 views

    Sermon for Advent 3, year C. John the Baptist sent his disciples to Jesus wanting to know why Jesus allowed him to remain in jail. Jesus quoted the prophet Isaiah back to him, and said, "rejoice."

    Preparing for 2020 John, Jesus, and Joy: Listening to the right prophet. I do not wear pink very often (unless I lose a bet, like today…). But, there is one service in the church year where the priest can wear pink vestments. Rose Sunday, or the Sunday of Joy… Today. I didn’t want to wear ...read more

  • Listening With Love

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Dec 22, 2019
     | 64 views

    Sermon for Advent 4, Year A. Sermon contrasts how Joseph could have treated Mary and how he actually acted toward her. Mary has a story (and thus Jesus) because Joseph listened with love and showed mercy.

    Preparing for 2020: Listening with Love I feel for Joseph. Not only because he’s often overlooked, but in some ways I understand what it’s like to be Joseph. In 1994 I found a new level of solidarity with Joseph. The children’s director concluded that the pastor’s grandson didn’t need a “speaking” ...read more
