The Thing I Am Most Afraid Of - Simon the Sorcerer


2013.04.14 - Kevin Makins - The Thing I Am Most Afraid Of: Two Sermons About Power

Simon the Sorcerer

Acts 8, John 14

If you were to ask me a few years ago what I was afraid of I would have probably said failure, but I’ve failed plenty of times, and now I’m not so scared of it.

I might have said weakness, but I’ve learned that God is with us even more in our weakness than in our strengths.

I might have said the devil or demons, and sure, that’s a frightening thing, but it’s not what I’m most afraid of. 

This is a sermon about what I am most afraid of.

Soma: 1 Corinthians - Order & Chaos


2012.06.03 - Kevin Makins - Soma: 1 Corinthians

Order & Chaos

1 Corinthians 14:26-40, Genesis 1

“The women should keep silent in the churches” - thanks for that gem, Paul. How in the world can this text be good news?

But like all texts we struggle to understand, when we get to the heart of it, it is actually very good news; and it all has to do with order & chaos.

Music led by Joel Cumby - starts 55 minutes in.
