Sermon

Where Fire Has Already Burned

March 14th, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Numbers 21, in which poisonous serpents attack the children of Israel, and John 3, in which Jesus tells Nicodemus that, to save the world, the Son of Man must be "lifted up." Jesus is exalted, we find, because he was hung on a cross for sinners.

Numbers 21, John 3

Divine and Human Things

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Genesis 17, in which God makes a covenant with Abraham and Sarah, and on Mark 8, in which Jesus rebukes Peter. What does it mean to "set our minds on divine things?" Put simply, it means to trust God, who has promised to save.

Sermon

Jesus Has Always Saved

February 21st, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 Peter 3, in which Peter makes a strange claim about Jesus preaching to spirits in prison. As it turns out, Peter is showing us that the cross has power both forward and backward in time; that anyone who has ever been saved has been saved by Christ's finished work.

Sermon

God Tells You Who You Are

February 17th, 2021

On Ash Wednesday, the Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon about identity. Who are you? The world has lots of identities on offer, but the audacious claim of Christianity is that God tells you who you are: dead in trespasses and sins and then alive in Christ.
