  • Mary, The Mother Of God

    Contributed by Richard Futrell on Oct 7, 2010
     | 5,080 views

    Elizabeth is Mary’s older relative, yet she considers it an honor that Mary should visit her. She even calls Mary “the mother of my Lord.” And so the Church has called Mary “Theotokos,” which means the bearer of God.

    Intro We are on the cusp of Christmas. In less than a week, we will marvel at the mystery of our Lord’s incarnation, of His taking on our humanity to save us. We are in a time of expectation; we are in Advent. It’s much like being pregnant, where a mother eagerly awaits and watches for the time ...read more

     | 1,126 views

    We will understand better the term Mother of God if we realize that the January 1 feast is really a feast of Our Lord Jesus.

    Solemnity of Mary Mother of God–January 1 (Thirteen Days of Christmas) To begin every New Year, the Church gives us a great gift, the Solemnity of Mary in her title “Mother of God.” But even though the feast has Mary in the title, like every Marian celebration, it is really ...read more

  • Mother Of God

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Dec 6, 2018
     | 299 views

    The infinite dimensions of Mary's the mind and will of God and her surrender.

    Psalm 90:12 says, “Lord, teach us to number our days, that we may gain wisdom of heart.” There should not be a New Year’s Day that goes by that we don’t remind ourselves of that truth one way or another. Last night, one guy was really counting down the time for the New Year. He remarked ...read more

  • The Annunciation

     | 6,972 views

    Sermon discusses Mary’s willingess to become God’s handmaiden. Three lessons are also examined: We are never alone, We are part of a greater plan, and Being faithful leads to greater opportunites to serve God.

    The Annunciation Introduction The other day I was scanning a popular men’s magazine and came across a quiz that tested, “How Daring Are You?” At first, I was certain that I’d score pretty well because I consider myself an innovator and risk taker. For example, I tried Cherry ...read more

    Saint Cyril of Alexandria and the Flesh and Bloodness of Jesus Christ.

    Opening Question: What does it mean to have a flesh and blood God? You may even wonder at times if you do have a flesh and blood God. Some of the representations of Christ that we see in religious society tend to have the effect, at times, of making Jesus more distant from our present day ...read more

    based on 84 ratings
     | 1,514 views

    Advent 4: We are all strugglers. And yet, God takes the life of a young ’struggler’ named Mary, and brings through her the Savior of the World - Jesus.

    Have you ever watched an aquarium? They can be wonderfully relaxing. It’s almost like staring into a fantasy world – a world of bright vivid colors; a world of soothing, peaceful motion; a world of blissful joy. But if you’ve ever owned an aquarium, you know that they’re actually delicately ...read more

  • The Council Of Chalcedon Series

    Contributed by Keith Foskey on Apr 30, 2014
     | 1,045 views

    Considered by many to be the last Ecumenical Council, how did the Council of Chalcedon affect the history of the early church and begin the rift which would ultimately become the Great Schism in 1054.

Lesson 5: The Council of Chalcedon So far, in our study of church history we have seen: An overview of the last 2,000 years of church history. The creeds which are found within the ...read more

  • Filled To Be Witnesses

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jun 10, 2012
     | 1,986 views

    God sends the Holy Spirit to fill us--gives us intimate knowledge of Him--in order that we may be His witnesses to the world.

    It’s Memorial Day Weekend. And, to follow contemporary American traditions, I am about 7 hours from being filled with burgers and hotdogs and chips and pickles and macaroni salad; and I’ll do the same thing tomorrow. Do you have any idea what I mean by filled? Yes? We all know what ...read more

  • Willingness Series

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Nov 21, 2011
    based on 6 ratings
     | 3,715 views

    During the season of Advent, we should examine our hearts and our willingness to serve God so that, like Mary, we are prepared to serve God humbly by saying, "Here I am, Lord, use me."

    I imagine that as the Thanksgiving festivities wound down this week, several of us took the extra time and opportunity to begin decorating for Christmas. We pull the boxes of decorations from their storage places, we unpack the Christmas tree and assemble it again, paying careful attention to make ...read more
