Sermon

Not Desert Pete

October 21st, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 53 and Mark 10, in which the suffering servant is promised and in which Jesus takes the mantle. Iniquity and transgression are all we have to offer our savior...but there is Good News: they are all that he accepts.

Isaiah 53:4-12, Mark 10:35-45

Sermon

Jesus Wants Your Everything; Jesus Is Your Everything

October 14th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Mark 10:17-27, in which a rich young man asks Jesus how to be saved. Instead of telling him the Gospel, Jesus crushes him with the Law. What gives? There is Good News: though Jesus demands our everything...he also gives us everything.

Mark 10:17-27

Sermon

A Gift, Not A Loan

October 7th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon tells everyone never to say thank-you. Well, sorta. Mostly, he celebrates the kind of gift--Christ's sacrificial love--for which no thanks could ever be enough.

Mark 10:13-16

Sermon

Jesus Stands For Us

September 30th, 2018

Sermon

Christ's Upside-Down Victory

September 23rd, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Mark 9:30-37, in which the disciples are afraid to ask Jesus questions. Christ's victory is incredibly counter-intuitive: he wins by losing and defeats death by dying.

Mark 9:30-37

Sermon

This Ought Not To Be So

September 16th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on James 3:1-12, in which James says that the tongue is a dangerous thing. How do we react to a world in which things aren't as they should be? We call out for a savior, who has promised that his saving work is complete.

James 3:1-12

Sermon

To The Dogs

September 9th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Mark 7:24-37, in which Jesus heals a woman's possessed daughter. Our unworthiness is what makes us worthy of Jesus' attentions.

Mark 7:24-37

Sermon

Clean, Unclean, and a New Creation

September 2nd, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon suggests that you go ahead and eat that piece of candy trapped in the shag carpeting under your couch... and reminds you that God didn't wait for you to clean yourself up to get to him. In Christ, God came to you.

Mark 7
