Are You the One? | Sermon

Pastor Bramwell delivered this sermon on December 13, 2015 (The Third Sunday in Advent). The sermon text is from the Gospel reading Luke 7:18-28, specifically verses 18-23.

The disciples of John reported all these things to him. And John,  calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to the Lord, saying, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?”  And when the men had come to him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to you, saying, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?’” In that hour he healed many people of diseases and plagues and evil spirits, and on many who were blind he bestowed sight.  And he answered them, “Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached to them. And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.”

The other readings for the day were from Philippians 4:4-7and Zeph. 3:14–20.

Giving Thanks Like a Leper

Pastor Bramwell delivered this sermon on November 25, 2015 (Thanksgiving Eve). The sermon text is Luke 17:11-19,

“On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee.  And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance  and lifted up their voices, saying, ‘Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.’  When he saw them he said to them, ‘Go and show yourselves to the priests.’ And as they went they were cleansed.  Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice;  and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, ‘Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine?  Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?’  And he said to him, ‘Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.’”

Thanksgiving & Advent Worship Resources

Yesterday, in church, Pastor announced two different worship resources. One of them is a Thanksgiving Litany and Grace (it was printed on a blue sheet of paper and handed out at the end of the service). If you’d like to print off more copies so that you can have enough for every person at your Thanksgiving Day dinner table, if you didn’t get a copy, or if you’d just rather have a PDF version to use on your mobile device it’s our pleasure to provide this great resource here. Simply click the “Unwrapping the Gifts” image below (or the previous link).Unwrapping-Gifts-banner-577x172

Both of these resources are great tools that will help you stay in God’s Word during the holidays. May God bless you in these times of heightened thankfulness, anticipation, and peace.
