Sermon

Divine and Human Things

February 28th, 2021

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.

Genesis 17, Mark 8

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.

Sermon

Only Jesus

February 14th, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 2 Kings 2 (the transfer of prophetic authority from Elijah to Elisha) and Mark 9 (the Transfiguration). Jesus alone accomplishes what the law and the prophets can only point to: the salvation of a sinner.

Sermon

God Became a Grasshopper

February 7th, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 40, in which the prophet announces two things: that God is great and that God is merciful. These, taken together in the person and work of Jesus Christ, are Good News for sinners like us.

Art and the Gospel (Part 4)

January 31st, 2021

Bryan Lilly guest-teaches Jacob Davis' class on Art and the Gospel, sharing his thoughts on a theology of beauty. The display of God's beauty through creation, he says, is an intentional act of self-revelation. In addition, God's beauty is a necessary element of our human flourishing.
