Christ the King 2013 - The Reverend Geoffrey Chapman

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

This sermon is a follow-up and response to Reverend Nancy's sermon the week previous, as well as a response to the Pastoral Care team who visited us from Cornerstone the night previous. If we are called to get fired up, and become more involved in our church, our community, and in our world, how do we discern the nature of our vocation? This sermon is about those first few steps.

All Saints Day 2013 - The Reverend Geoffrey Chapman

Monday, November 4th, 2013

The Beatitudes is one of the most well-known, well-loved passages in the New Testament. Jesus' sermon declaring blessed are the poor, blessed are those who hunger, and those who thirst for righteousness may have changed the world forever. And yet it is also one of the most challenging passages in the Bible, frustrating us as we recognize that poverty can be truly awful, and mere success should not destroy us with guilt. This sermon wrestles with how we embrace this famous passage as Christians.
