    explanation of the season of Lent

    WHAT IS LENT? Last Wednesday we celebrated Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent. While I was eating my share of pancakes at a Shrove Tuesday dinner, someone asked me just exactly what is Lent, which started me thinking. For those of us raised in the church (particularly the Roman ...read more

    A short Ash Wednesday Sermon that encourages us to see that your life is not about you, but Jesus’ life is

    Ash Wednesday has always presented me with a problem. As I read and research the scriptures for Ash Wednesday I get the feeling that God is saying, Hey Richard, hey Ray, hey….(and mention others) wake up to yourself, life is not about you, there are more important things in your life than ...read more

  • Transfiguration

    Contributed by James Jerpseth on Mar 1, 2001
    based on 69 ratings
     | 2,526 views

    The word Transfiguration is another way to say transformed. We too have been transformed by the power of hte resurrection and hte love of Jesus.

    One of my favorite parts of confirmation is the day we spend in the Church going over the special vocabulary that we have in the Church world. It is a funny thing that we have a different "Churchy" name for everything that we would otherwise call by its normal or non-churchy name. For example, ...read more

  • Giving Up Lent For Lent

    Contributed by Wayne Lawson on Feb 23, 2015
    based on 8 ratings
     | 22,457 views

    I am giving up Lent for Lent this year, at least the way the Church typically does Lent. Lord is not interested in what I give up for just 40 days and return to it. He is interested in me giving up the sins in my life which will make Easter more joyous

    TITLE: GIVING UP LENT FOR LENT SCRIPTURE: ST LUKE 9:22-24 / II CORINTHIANS 13:5-6 Although Easter is the most significant of the Christian holidays it does not enjoy the kind of enthusiastic fanfare afforded Christmas or even Thanksgiving. Lent is a forty-day period before Easter. It ...read more

  • Farewell To The Flesh (Mardi Gras Carnival)

    Contributed by James May on Feb 15, 2004
    based on 39 ratings
     | 5,395 views

    This sermon deals with the evils of Mardi Gras and its effect upon the heart, mind and soul of men, especially Christians who take part in the revelry.

    FAREWELL TO THE FLESH Since we live in south Louisiana, I think it would be timely for this message concerning the Mardi Gras season. It’s that time again; the time for King Cakes, Purple and Gold decorations, costumes and decadence beyond description. This is the time when the true heart of ...read more

    Where did Ash Wednesday come from? And what does Lent have to do with me?

    ISAIAH 59:12-20 ASH WEDNESDAY? What exactly is “Ash Wednesday”? Where does it come from? It’s not in the Bible, obviously. But some of its ideas are.

  • Discipleship - Doing The Father's Will Series

    Contributed by Nigel Heath on Mar 17, 2009
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,219 views

    We focus too much on the love of Jesus for us at the expense of focussing on Jesus’ love for the Father. True disciples devote themselves to doing the will of the Father as Jesus did.

    8.2.09 DISCIPLESHIP – DOING THE FATHER’S WILL - Luke 9 INTRO How many of you here are observing Lent in one way or another. Some people observe Lent merely out of ritual or as a tradition. I was astonished and somewhat bemused when Liz told me of someone she knows who is giving up swearing ...read more
