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.

November 1, 2020 Sermon – The Forest for the Trees: Spiritual Apathy

I began the sermon by asking you to recall a time in your life when you literally or metaphorically ran to and knelt before Jesus.  I hope you can recall such a time.  I imagine you desire to feel like that again.  And the amazing message of today’s scripture passage is that you CAN.  All it takes is removing your expectations of God, of Jesus, and replacing them with an acceptance and praise of WHATEVER God offers.
