Real Authority Recognized

Pastor David Menzel’s text came from Luke 7. The events in this chapter point to someone who, unlike the church leaders of the day, recognized that Jesus had authority to heal, and if Jesus wanted to hear it would happen. That event is recorded for all of us to challenge us: do we really live as if we believed Jesus has authority to do good for me; for his people; for his church?

Do Not Be Afraid

In all the gospel narratives the issue of fear is addressed by Jesus and heavenly messengers (angels). We hear things like “Fear not”, “Do not be afraid!”; “…and the doors were locked because they were afraid.” Fear has been with the human race since the garden of Eden. But what does Easter have to do with fear? In his sermon, Martin Rossol, wants us to recognize that Easter has a lot to do with the fear of being abandoned; the fear of judgement; and the fear of death.

Gabriel’s Messages – Luke 1:8-20ff

St Luke wrote his gospel to give Theophilus “certainty about what he had been taught”.  In support of that purpose Luke inserts several events which involve the angel Gabriel and his message to Zechariah and Mary.  Pastor Larry builds on these events and also ties in other events where Gabriel speaks. And these all should help give us certainty about our faith Christ, whose coming we celebrate this month.
