We are looking at Romans 12:1 today, making our bodies a living sacrifice. Disembodied spirits can't perform this one. As long as we're alive, it's a choice as to how we are going to serve, and serve we should and must.
As we approach Christmas, Pastor Nancy continues the journey of our salvation story.
This week we're examining Gabriel's announcement to Mary, whom he calls the "highly favored one", that she is to be the bearer of the Lord and Savior of Israel and all of mankind. Get prepared, as we explore how we, each of us, are God's highly favored ones.
For those of us who are ancient, we remember the Danny Thomas show of the 50's, "Make Room for Daddy". It's Advent season, and as we approach Christmas our guest speaker this morning, Jean Watson, shares with us how we might begin preparing for the annual remembrance of the birth of our Lord and Savior. Let's prepare to make room for Jesus.
Mrs. Watson is a composer, violinist and singer. She also has a daily radio program broadcast in the United Kingdom, sharing the love of Jesus.
For 400 years before the birth of Jesus, God was silent. No prophet, no communication of any sort was heard. But then, out of the blue, Gabriel shows up, the one who stands in the Presence of God. But what is the one and the two of this 1-2 punch? Let's listen.
Here we are again... Thanksgiving. While so many have participated in a tradition of sharing around the Thanksgiving table something for which they can be thankful before diving into the turkey and fixings, this year Pastor Nancy shares from her book of morning meetings with the Lord her top ten best. Each day, before the madness gets rolling, she sits by the front window looking into the woods, sitting in her Norwegian Uncle Flink's grand old oak rocking chair and searches Scripture. And every once in a while there's a verse or verses that slaps her in the face. Those moments that you know that you know that you know that our Living God has something particularly just for you. And at that moment you know you are loved by Him and Him alone. Let's listen as she shares.
Our guest speaker today is Pastor Manny Garcia, our new supervisor from our Iowa congregations. His region, like so many churches, and not just churches but organizations throughout the country and world, have experienced difficulties through the pandemic of the past year. Unity has not become just another nice sermon drawn from Paul's letter to the Corinthian church, but is now a very real and necessary dynamic in our modern times.
Pastor Nancy finishes up the series on 1 Corinthians 13 this morning. You'll have to listen to discover the relationship of kindness and old hags. None of our gifts and talents mean a whit if love is not in the forefront in our behavior.
We all love games, particularly card games that have wild cards, trump cards. But life is not a game, is it? Today Nancy discusses a particular conundrum with which we all must negotiate. This is our second to last Sunday on 1st Corinthians Chapter 13.
Agape love is never happy when trouble comes calling. Today Nancy continues exploring the Corinthian church and the dynamics at that time, nearly 2000 years ago, that are the exact same problem we find today, right here, right now in our own local churches. And we need to get it straight while we still have time. We are in 1 Corinthians 13
