Sermon

Grace That Holds You

March 10th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Romans 10:8-13, in which Paul says that all who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved. That sounds like wonderful news, but can it possibly be true?

You're Only Human: Ash Wednesday

March 6th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon for Ash Wednesday, a day on which we make a mark on our foreheads...not to show how spiritual we are, but how deeply needy we are. The Good News is that Jesus Christ died for needy sinners...he died for us.

Matthew 6

Sermon

A Torn Veil

March 3rd, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 2 Corinthians 3, in which Paul says that we can now approach God with boldness. But how is that possible, as sinners? Going back to Moses and to the crucifixion, we see that sinful people have always had to fear a holy God...until the intervention of Jesus Christ.

Exodus 33, Exodus 34, 2 Corinthians 3

Sermon

You Are Made Complete

February 24th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Genesis 45, in which Joseph forgives his brothers, and Luke 6, in which Jesus commands a revolutionary love of neighbor. How is such a love possible? It can only exist in light of a prior love, the one-way love of God in Christ for a sinful person.

Genesis 45, Luke 6

Sermon

The Good News is No Platitude

February 17th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Jeremiah 17, in which the prophet says that wise people trust in the Lord, while fools trust in their own strength. That's all well and good, but where is the Good News for those of who are addicted to our own strength? Spoiler alert: it's in Jesus.

Jeremiah 17:5-10

Sermon

Jesus Won't Go Away

February 10th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 6 and Luke 5, in which Isaiah and Peter (respectively) come into the presence of God. Both men, acknowledging their sinfulness, ask God to go away. And God, in his mercy, says "No."

Isaiah 6, Luke 5

Sermon

Not The Sorcerer's Apprentice

February 3rd, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Jeremiah 1:4-10, in which Jeremiah receives his calling from God. Unlike fantasy heroes, God's servants are not given a great mission to accomplish. We are given a great accomplishment to proclaim: Jesus' victory for sinners.

Jeremiah 1:4-10

Sermon

Favor for the Broken

January 27th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Nehemiah 8, in which the Israelites break down after hearing the law, and Luke 4, in which Jesus proclaims the year of the Lord's favor. Though the law always oppresses, the Gospel sets us free.

Nehemiah 8, Luke 4
