The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 42, in which God presents his Messiah to the world, and Matthew 3, in which Jesus is baptized by John in the Jordan River.

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Ephesians 1, in which Paul greets that church as though it's full of perfect disciples of Christ.

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 49, in which God promises never to forget his people. He takes that promise so seriously that, many years later at a place called The Skull, he'll forget--for a moment--his beloved son...all so he can remember you.

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 2, in which the people of God are described as streaming up the mountain of the Lord, excited to receive his law. How did a sinful nation reach this point? It is by the announcement of the Good News, that their sins, which are like scarlet, will be made white as snow.
