This past weekend I was privileged to be able to preach at the church where I am on staff. I thought it would be fun to share that sermon here on the podcast as a type of bonus/semi-unplanned episode. The texts I preached on were Genesis 32:22-31, 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5, and Luke 18:1-8. In this sermon, I talk about how parables as a mode of communication that demand action and how we can not simply just ignore the problematic and difficult passages that we encounter in the pages of the scriptures. Ps. The audio quality is not great because I had to record it on the iPad I was preaching from. Subscribe to the Signposts weekly email!

There is a realm of time where the goal is not to have but to be, not to own but to give, not to control but to share, not to subdue but to be in accord. Life goes wrong when the control of space, the acquisition of things of space, becomes our sole concern.” ―Abraham Joshua HeschelSubscribe to the Signposts email list!

This past weekend I was privileged to be able to preach at all three services at the church I am employed at. I thought it would be fun to share that sermon here on the podcast as a type of bonus/semi-unplanned episode. The text I preached on was Luke 10:38-42 and Amos 8:1-12. In this sermon, I talk about how it is not merely enough to challenge individuals to make time in their lives for Sabbath/Contemplation but rather the church must be willing to push back against the systems that make those very acts a privilege for the few. Ps. The audio quality is not great because I had to record it on the iPad I was preaching on. Subscribe to the Signposts weekly email!

Brennan had the same affect on me, a few years a go. Being a member of the Baptist Church for so long, Brennan allowed me to know what Grace really was. I enjoyed it. Thank you.
