Sermons on Hymn Texts
The Church's hymns help us see our own world from another—and perhaps not so different—vantage point that illuminates the impact of the work of Christ and the general providing and protecting activity of our Creator in our lives.
Gospel: Matthew 20:1-16 (Pentecost 16: Series A)
Imagine a world where love is given to the least. That is what Jesus is inviting His disciples to do in His parable this morning.
Epistle: Philippians 1:12-14, 19-30 (Pentecost 16: Series A)
It is the Word of the Lord and His Word accomplishes what it says. Our favorable or unfavorable circumstances neither help nor hinder the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Old Testament: Isaiah 55:6-9 (Pentecost 16: Series A)
God seeks us so we might find Him, but He does so in ways that do not always make sense to us.
Holy Cross Day
Our forefathers dedicated Holy Cross Day to jolt the Church into remembrance that Christianity is not principally about ethics.
