This sermon is Pastor Larry’s last in a series on the Christian faith: How do we persevere to the end? Pastor Larry finds comfort and help for us all in Romans 8. (Sorry but we had technical problems the first half of the talk, so the recording picks up about half way through.)
If you want a primer on the basic problem of the human race you could do much worse than this sermon by Pastor Larry Oldaker. Humanity has a sin problem. And it is much worse than most of us really want to admit it is.
The church in America does not hold the “favored” place it once did. Pastor Alan shared some statistics to support that contention. He then asked: Why? Why has the church lost the appeal to so many in our nation, and what is God’s design to make the church beautiful to those both inside and out?
In his Christmas carol, Longfellow laments “there is no peace on earth, I said.” We often say the same. But in his letter to the Romans, the apostle Paul replies. Listen as our visiting preacher describes the meaning of Paul’s declaration of peace in this week’s sermon.
Most Christians experience times in their life when it just doesn’t seem like things are going in the direction they thought. And its not unusual for them to ask “If God really is working all things for good, why doesn’t it seem that way in my life?” Pastor Alan Conrow addressed this with his sermon Sunday.
