I could argue that today’s sermon was equally suited for the first Sunday of a new year, but in any event, Randy challenged us to really consider what God’s will for Stonebridge Church might really be. (Hint: our ‘comfort’ was not a part of that description.) Randy’s interpretation also shed light on Colossians and that […]
Repent and Prepare for the Savior – Luke
What “good news” is there when someone calls you “a brood of vipers”? Dr. Luke helps his readers see that while there is a call for repentance and of coming judgement, that the good new, the “Gospel” is that John the Baptizer as well as Jesus tell us that that there is still time to […]
Making Sense of Newtown – Matt 2:16-18 (
We grieve with families in Newtown, Ct. We implore God because we do not understand. Where was God Friday morning? No, he did not turn his back. He not only understands the evil things that happen- a result of the total depravity of man -but he also feels the pain. He is more pained the […]

God Loves Dysfunctional Families- Gen 34...
OK, so we’ve seen in the series that the people in Genesis were not all that “wonderful”. But in today’s sermon, Pastor Dan, well, its sort of a shocker. I mean, how dysfunctional can a family get?! Well, it can get pretty ugly. But the amazing thing is that God’s plan includes some members of […]
