Standing Firm in Unsteady Times

The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson | Philippians 1:21-27

In Paul’s letter to the Philippians, he writes that for him, “to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Given the uncertainty of our world, with natural disasters and political instability constantly throwing out the ground under our feet, what does it look like to stand firm in the Gospel, life or death? Join our dean, Peet, as he explores Paul’s bold claim.

Romans: Saved for Mission

The Rev. Rob Sturdy | Romans 14:5-12 |

In the final installment of our summer preaching series, we find Paul exhorting a church fallen prey to the sin of judgement and subsequent division. There is no room for judgement for ourselves or others in a church defined by the grace of God. Join guest preacher Rev. Rob Sturdy as he diagnoses the human heart, laden with judgement, and prescribes the Gospel cure.

 

Romans: Saved for Mission

The Rev. David Alwine | Romans 12:9-21 |

Romans 12 marks Paul’s turn from doctrine, the story of the Gospel, to action, the call to believers to participate in God’s mission. The second half of the chapter outlines the foundation of Christian ethics with the words “Let love be genuine”. This charge becomes the guiding principle for what it means to live as a Christian. Join Rev. David Alwine as he unpacks Romans 12:9-21.

Romans: Saved for Mission

Jacob Graudin | Romans 12:1-8 |

Romans 12 marks Paul’s turn from doctrine, the story of the Gospel, to action, the call to believers to participate in God’s mission. Yet this turn is not a point of disconnect; Paul starts his ethical charge by grounding it in “the mercies of God,” the same mercies he has spent the previous eleven chapters outlining. How then does Paul call his audience to live? What does it mean to participate in God’s mission? Join our ministry assistant Jacob Graudin as he describes the life devoted to God.
