Peace? John 14:23-29 It’s a little off-the-wall, I know... but did you know: the bathtub was invented in 1850... and the telephone was invented in 1875? So, that means (at least theoretically) if you had been living in 1850 you could’ve sat in the bathtub for 25-years without the telephone ringing! Of course, that’s one kind of peace, isn’t it? Solitude. And we all need moments of solitude from time-to-time, don’t we? Even Jesus sought out the peace that solitude brings... and said that we should find a secluded place, when we pray, where we can be alone with God. You and I know - as followers of Christ... we understand... that there’s a difference between what the world calls “peace” a

Everyone Will Know

Everyone Will Know 1 John 4:16-21 John 13:31-35 Several years ago, a minister heard about another preacher, who’d made it into the World Record Books by preaching the longest sermon ever (the sermon lasted 53 hours, 18 minutes)! The minister knew he never be able to preach that long, or longer, without boring people to death - so he decided to attempt the complete opposite. He decided to preach the world’s shortest sermon.

Of course... that’s not a stretch for many... because every time I start preaching some of you imagine you’re somewhere else! But instead of imagining you’re on the lake... or at the beach... or at home sitting in your Lazy Boy - try to imagine you’re in the room with Jesus’ disciples, after the Cross, after the crucifixion of Jesus.

Do You Love Me?

Do You Love Me? John 21:1-14 John 21:15-19 The Easter Season is my favorite time of the year... and (in the Church) we get to celebrate the Easter Season for 7-weeks... today being the 3rd Sunday of Easter. Of course, if you think back to Holy Week, you can’t help but notice that God’s Word marched us through mountains and valleys... ups and downs... highs and lows.
