Weekend Review: Wrath

This weekend, we looked at the topic of anger. And, in general, I think anger is more often something we live with, rather than deal with, in our lives. But, I believe it is something that needs to be resolved. The more we actually deal with our anger, and learn to live free from it,…

This weekend, we are wrapping up our 7 Deadly Sins sermon series looking at a big topic: Wrath. Now, this is a really important conversation, because in many ways our world is an angry world. There is anger all over the place. It’s so common. It’s so expected. You only need to go online to…

Weekend Review: Gluttony

This past weekend, we looked at the sensitive topic of gluttony, and we started in an odd place, with a discussion of math, statistics, and “The Inverted-U Curve.” Here’s how Malcolm Gladwell explains it… “Inverted-U curves have three parts, and each part follows a different logic.

Weekend Review: Sloth

This past weekend, we opened up a discussion around the sin of sloth, which at first glance doesn’t seem all that bad. The idea of having a lazy Saturday doesn’t seem very deadly.

7 Deadly Sins: Sloth

This weekend, we are continuing in our series, 7 Deadly Sins, and we are looking at the sin of sloth. And, at first glance, I would wager that most of us don’t see this sin as all that deadly. Like honestly, sleeping in, reading a book, watching Netflix, and having coffee doesn’t seem sinful –…

Weekend Review: Pride

This past weekend, we opened up our first sermon in our series, 7 Deadly Sins. And, we began with three ground rules… 1. God doesn’t use guilt, so neither will I. We are not going to use guilt as a motivator. 2. This series will be focused on freedom and healing, not on sin. We…

We are kicking off a brand-new series on the 7 Deadly Sins, which will take us through the season of Lent – a Christian practice that begins on Wednesday, March 6 and continues for 40 days. And, I know at first glance this doesn’t seem like a lot of fun. A seven-week series on sin…
