You Have to be Righteous

Series: Preacher: Date: July 30, 2017 Scripture Reference: Matthew 5:17-22

Have you ever seen high jumpers compete at a track and field event? It’s amazing to watch.  These athletes take four or five carefully-planned steps and then launch their bodies over a bar—head first—back down. I don’t know how they do it—but these guys are able to control every muscle in their body independently—consciously moving […]

You Will Face Turbulence

Series: Preacher: Date: July 23, 2017 Scripture Reference: Matthew 5:10-12

One of my favorite movies—is BRAVEHEART—where Mel Gibson stars as a 13th century Scottish commoner named William Wallace. Are there any other BRAVEHEART fans present? If you’ve seen the film then you know that it’s based on the true story of how William Wallace led his country to freedom from an oppressive English rule. Fueled […]

Twenty years ago, the king of the video rental industry was a company called Blockbuster. Back then, if your family craved a movie night, someone would get in the car and drive to one of Blockbuster’s 9,000 stores, stroll through rows of VHS-tape-lined shelves—and hand a membership card to a blue-clad employee. You had to […]

At the turn of the 20th century, a man named Alfred was one of the preeminent scientists and entrepreneurs of his day.

Back in 1984, the Los Angeles Times carried the story of a woman named Anna Mae Pennica. Anna was a 62-year-old woman and she had been blind from birth. When she was 47 Anna married a man she met in a Braille class and for the first 15 years of their marriage he did the […]

15 – The Son is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn over all creation.  16 – For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.  17 – He is before all things, and in Him all things […]

Fathers and Other Men of Character

Series: -- Preacher: Date: June 18, 2017, Father's Day Scripture Reference: 1 Timothy 6:11-12

See the slides I received a Christmas gift last year that I enthusiastically use just about every day.  It’s the Show Me How page-a-day calendar.  It uses little graphics to teach me how to do just about anything.  For example, just over a month ago I learned how to fend off a mountain lion.  See […]

You Have to Show Mercy

I began this series five sermons ago, by telling you about the Wright brothers—Wilbur and Orville. At the time I reminded you that these two brothers literally changed the world—which they certainly did the day in December of 1903 when they flew that flimsy airplane. But to make that happen—to get that first plane off […]

Did you know that the second-largest food consumption day of the year here in the U.S.—after Thanksgiving—is Super-Bowl Sunday?  Statistics tell us that on that single day—actually in one 4-hour period—in addition to things like chili and baby-back ribs—Americans eat: 4 million pounds of popcorn TONS of Pizza—in fact pizza delivery is 60% higher during […]
