John 7-8, Matthew 5, 1 Corinthians 6, Galatians 5, Romans 1, Hebrews 13, 1 Timothy 1, Genesis 1, Song of Songs

Here it is: the most important (and awkward) topic on the list! We are surrounded by sex in our culture, but our culture fails to understand it. Our culture is sex OBSESSED, but is still as lonely and disconnected as ever. We are in desperate need of a better word on sex, and the church has tried to bring this word.

The problem is that sometimes, in trying to bring a good word, the church has heaped shame, judgement, and pain on people .

There must be a better way to talk about, and practice, sex as Jesus followers.

Additionally, there is reference to another sermon on sex that has been preached at Eucharist, that covers some additional ground. You can find that sermon by clicking here!

Leviticus 27, Numbers 18, Deuteronomy 14 & 26, 1 Corinthians 16, 2 Corinthians 8-9, 1 Timothy 5

Finally; the money sermon! 

How should the Christian give? What should we give? When should we give? What does the Bible say about giving to your local church?

What if I’m poor? What if I’m rich?

A sermon all about cash-money, and what it means to give to your community.

both God and money: Mo' Money, Mo' Problems

2011.05.29 - Kevin Makins - both God and money: Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems

Matthew 6, 1 Timothy 6, Hebrews 13

We work for it, think about it, dream of what we would do with it; our world is obsessed with money.

But when it comes to money, the church is often silent.

The job of the Christian is to confront the false gods of the day. Today, the god of money reigns. 

We need to confront this false god.  We need to believe that there is a better way, and a better God. We need to know how to use our money as a tool, how to rebel against the myths of our culture, and how to create a world that is generous.

Perhaps most of all, we need to understand Jesus’ words: “you cannot serve both God and money.”

Music led by Joel Cumby.
