  • "The Shepherd Who Loves The Sheep: Catholic Priesthood”

    Contributed by John Sj on Apr 28, 2006
    based on 17 ratings
     | 1,954 views

    THIS IS A HOMILY I GAVE DURING MY ORDINATION THANKSGIVING MASS

    “Jesus took pity on them because they were like Sheep without shepherd.” Today we ask ourselves what those words mean as we celebrate a birth in the priestly family. What could the Gospel be teaching us about the priesthood in that imagery of the sheep and the shepherd? More so as ...read more

  • Handling God's Word

    Contributed by Andrew Stringer on Apr 24, 2001
    based on 87 ratings
     | 1,876 views

    There are many preachers today who mishandle God’s Holy Writ--some use it to make money and teach false doctrine, some use it to beat people over the head, some use it to justify wicked habits and styles of living; look into II Timothy 2 and find out how God wants His servants to use His word!

    HOW WE SHOULD HANDLE GOD’S WORD II TIMOTHY 2:9-26 Introduction: Read II Peter 3:15-16. Many preachers and teachers are just what these verses describe—unstable—and many times as they get up to preach or teach, they actually wrest the Scriptures. We must learn how to respond to God’s word and ...read more

  • Gatekeeper, Gateopener

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Nov 20, 2000
    based on 77 ratings
     | 3,872 views

    The pastor has two roles that must not be reduced -- a gatekeeper to guard against useless ideas and hateful attitudes, and a gateopener to let in God's surprises.

    Do you think the Lord has a sense of humor? I do. I see a delicious little coincidence that God’s word drops in our laps today. Some of us remember a 70’s TV program, the Mary Tyler Moore show. If you remember that program, you will recall that sweet, nice, loveable Mary lived in an apartment ...read more

  • “the Dynamic Impact Of A Good Deacon”

    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Feb 19, 2014
     | 2,467 views

    In Acts 6, we see what kind of positive impact the effective ministry of the deacon can have on a local church.

    The early church was experiencing phenomenal growth, marvelous miracles, pulsating power, and unlimited blessings. Then, right in the middle of this success story, dissension arose. The Greek speaking widows were being neglected in favor of the Hebrew speaking widows. The Apostles said that they ...read more

    Farewell sermon.

    There is nothing more poignant than considering the end of things. Whenever we experience the end of things it helps us consider what is really important. I was struck this week by John Piper’s journal entry: He recounted as he sat beside the bed of his father keeping a vigil. He monitored his ...read more
