November 22, 2020 Sermon – Giving Thanks Amidst COVID-19

If we, friends and members of First Christian Church, Grand Junction, take this opportunity to give thanks to God – being sure to direct our thanksgiving to God – even amidst one of the most tragic years in recent memory, we will set ourselves on a course of turning away from the pain of 2020 and toward the wonder of all God has done, all God is doing, and all God will do for us and for all people.  And if we allow the course we chart on this one day of the year become a pattern for every day of the year, we might just discover a spirit of thanksgiving toward God can and will become our default position, regardless of the circumstances that surround us.

September 6, 2020 Sermon – Pursuing Change for Christ: Reconciliation

My friends, God sent Jesus to reconcile with people – with US – while we were STILL sinners.  God’s way of reconciliation is for the party who has been harmed, who has been sinned against, the “victim” we would say, to make the first move of restoring relationship…not because it’s easy but because it’s the ONLY way to not just pursue but actually ACHIEVE real, lasting change, the kind of change that could be characterized as the kingdom of God.
