Where are you finding hope this Christmas? Lower COVID numbers? The economy? Some Christmas special? Real hope is found only in Jesus.
This Sunday we continue the 40-day journey to the cross that started on Ash Wednesday. Do you trust me? (To the moon and back, right?) You answer, “Maybe, Pastor, but it really depends on what you are doing.” Many of you have known me for more than a decade. I’ll tell you what I’m up to on Sunday morning. A better question is do you trust God? God is worthy of your trust.
In Christ alone our hope is found! Everything comes back to Jesus. There are plenty of other people, works, theologies, and gods that others try to tack onto what we believe. As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation may we always keep the focus on Jesus.
What goes great with burgers and dogs over a park BBQ pit? A study of the Trinity, of course. We continued our celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation of the church with a study of the Trinity. Our sermon at this year’s church picnic looked at how we became part of God’s family.
