God's Story, Your Story and Our Story Through the Eyes of the Gospel Writers: Empathy Today

December 1 - January 5, 2020

December 01, 2019

Sermon Title: “God and Dis-Grace”

Texts: Isaiah 2:1-5; Psalm 122; Romans 13:11-14; and Matthew 24:36-44

Texts: Isaiah 11:1-10; Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19; Romans 15:4-13; and Matthew 3:1-12

Big Idea: We find solidarity in the pain of others. Joining our pain with that of another. That is empathy.

Texts: Isaiah 35:1-10; Psalm 146:5-10; James 5:7-10; and Matthew 11:2-11

December 24, 2019

Sermon Title: “God Created Us Because God Enjoys Us”

Texts: Isaiah 9:2-7; Psalm 96; Titus 2:11-14; and Luke 2:1-14 (15-20)

December 29, 2019

Sermon Title: “Inverting The Categories”

Texts: Isaiah 63:7-9; Psalm 148; Hebrews 2:10-18; and Matthew 2:13-23

Big Idea: A new year is upon us. What is good and what is bad? Setback or progress? Evidence based outcomes from each category can be a blessing. Success can come from the good, the bad, the setback and progress.

January 05, 2020

Sermon Title: “We Belong To Each Other”

Texts: Ephesians 1:3-14; and John 1: (1-9) 10-18

Big Idea: The voices on the margins speak. When we listen the circle of compassion widens. Our souls feel their worth and we refuse to forget that belong to each other. Note the significance of empathy in that process.
