You're Not Harry Potter and That's Good News

August 25th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Jeremiah 1, in which the prophet, who protests about his weakness, is called into God's service. We servants of God are not like fantasy heroes, who have a great mission to accomplish. No, we are given Christ's great accomplishment to proclaim.

Jeremiah 1


Jesus Divides, Jesus Saves

August 18th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Jeremiah 23, in which the prophet compares prophets who tell their own dreams to preachers who proclaim the word of God. The news is bad and good: bad, in that God has spoken, and we are found wanting. Good, in that Christ has come to save sinners.

Jeremiah 23


From Groundbreaking to Grand Opening

August 11th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Hebrews 11, in which God's faithful promise-keeping is illustrated through a description of the city promised to Abraham and his descendants and the fact that Sarah's barren womb is able to give Abraham descendants at all. Faith is of utmost importance, but it is God's faith that matters, not yours.

Hebrews 11


Out of Whoredom

August 4th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Hosea 1, in which the prophet is told to marry Gomer, a "woman of whoredom." God is illustrating what it's like for him to be in relationship with us, his sinful people. But there is Good News: God will rescue us, at great cost, and remain faithful even when we are not.

Hosea 1


An Extravagant Giver

July 28th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 11, in which Jesus teaches the disciples about prayer. What kind of listener is God? What kind of gift-giver? The Good News is that God is not like us: we give reluctantly; God gives overflowingly. We give after being hounded; God gives immediately. We give to people we think deserve it; God gives to the undeserving. We give when there's something in it for us; God gives everything--the life of his beloved son.

Luke 11


Company is Coming

July 21st, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 10, in which Jesus is a guest in Mary and Martha's home. Martha works, Mary sits, and Jesus says that Mary has chosen the better part. The Good News is that we already have Jesus for us and there is no more work to be done.

Luke 10


Rescued, Transferred, Redeemed, Forgiven

July 14th, 2019

Micah Childs, Senior Warden of Grace Church, preaches a sermon on Colossians 1, in which Paul greets this church in a letter from his prison cell. What good news does he share with them? That Christ has done everything for them: rescued them from their enemy, transferred them into his kingdom, redeemed them from their sin, and forgiven their every transgression. This is Good News indeed.
