Recently I have been given the opportunity to serve as a research assistant…for my 17-year-old.
Alexa has been working on a school paper about Soren Kierkegaard.
What I’ve learned has been fascinating. Soren (since we’re on a first-name basis) died in 1855 at the age of 42…which is my current age.
Soren had become disenfranchised with the church in Denmark.
He argued for love in contrast to a “dead religion.” Christianity should be much more than objective facts to follow, rather it should be a relationship with God founded on love.
This Sunday, I look forward to sharing a sermon form John 5:1-16. This is a story of a man who had been crippled for 38 years. Here is the irony…. Jesus performed a miracle that would have left most anyone speechless and full of awe and wonder. However, the religious leaders became angry. As a result, this miracle marks the turning point in the ministry of Jesus when people began to question His motives and criticize his works.
There is so much more to discuss, so I hope you can join us on Sunday at either 9:00 or 10:45am. If you cannot attend in person, we are offering a livestream of the 10:45am service that can be watched HERE.
ONE MORE THING…I understand that during a sermon you may have questions about the text or even the application that are not answered, so I have started to follow up each sermon with a short podcast to answer those questions. You can see the Q&A podcast from this past Sunday here. And if you have questions during the sermon, you can leave them at the connect table, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post online on our YouTube channel.
